Slave To The Wage

Placebo Slave To The Wage Hut


Slave To The Wage (Hut)

Having rather put his foot in it by talking out loud, Brian Molko

finds himself in the middle of an epic salvage operation before Placebo's

third album has even reached the shops. Still, never fear, because if you ignore

the lyrics about, ahem, whoredom and Maggie Thatcher (get over it, you

were living in Luxembourg, you silly man), 'Slave To The Wage' is actually

a really great single complete with nagging keyboard motif and a tune. Whether

that's enough to make you gloss over Molko's crimes against humanity is a

different matter entirely. One thing's for certain, though, that cover of Big

's 'Holocaust' won't help much.
