1001 7" Records You Must Own No.16 Placebo - 36 Degrees / Dark Globe
On their first two albums Placebo could do no wrong, unfortunately I’ve not been so enamoured by their later work but especially the self-titled debut is a must for any indie rock fan. ’36 Degrees’ is a re-recording of their debt single and sounds much better here, but as usual it’s the b-side that makes the list. A beautiful stripped back cover of Syd Barrett’s ‘Dark Globe’ I’ve heard many a band cover this song but Placebo’s takes it to another level so emotional and cracked it’s definitely worth picking up.
