Placebo - Covers

Placebo - Covers

I hadn’t heard this version until just yesterday (it’s a TOBI pick) – but it’s just as dramatic as the Kate Bush original, only a little less 80s synth, a little more rock. Significantly more chilled than ‘Nancy Boy’ or ‘Pure Morning’ (my favourite Placebo tracks) it adds another dimension to their usual, and much appreciated, glam guitar riffing.

Placebo – Running Up That Hill

They just released new album, ‘Battle for the Sun’ (no audio), in June 09 but this particular track is on ‘Covers’, along with their take on ’20th Century Boy’ and Depeche Mode classic, ‘I Feel You’.

Placebo will be playing Reading and Leeds festivals this August and then heading off to Continental Europe but are back in December for a London at the o2 Arena.
