since i was born, i started to decay

A slow version of “Teenage Angst” ¬†by Placebo, live in Brixton, 1998… They came to South Africa around this time, the support act on a Garbage tour. My boyfriend and I caught a bus up to Jo’burg one day in the middle of end-of-year exams to see them. We had to take the bus back that same night; we couldn’t even stay to see Garbage. It was so worth it… The depth of Brian Molko’s black hole magnetism.
