Slave to the Wage-Placebo/Metal Mickey-Suede

Battle of the English androgynous superstars today. I always marvel at the differences in US and UK music. Of course both countries have their own piles of unadulterated crap, but it seems like there is a greater variety of stuff that sees the light of pop chart attention arcoss the pond. Placebo gives us a goth-pop Gattaca inspired video for a song I quite like, while Suede histrionically soundtracks a Prince-like pimp picking up the local butcher-girl in an utterly creepy way. I hadn’t noticed before, but the song sounds like the La’s on steroids and in drag.
