Nancy boy

Brian Molko is, by most accounts, a pretty unpleasant character and the quality of Placebo's music fell off a cliff after (or perhaps mid-way through) 2000's Black Market Music. But it's worth remembering - as Noisey's Daisy Jones suggests we should - that in the context of the mid- to late 90s, when we were suffering the boorish, male, lager-swilling dregs of Britpop, Molko's openness about non-heteronormativity and his band's spiky take on glam were "like a neon light in a dark alleyway".
