The End of Medicine: Feist as Placebo

Feist seems ubiquitous, whether in the bloggersphere or in more prominent publications. She's absolutely charming, with a smooth, sultry voice that's appeared with artists as disparate as Peaches, Kings of Convenience, The New Deal, The Postal Service and, of course, Broken Social Scene.

But that's not the full story. Like fellow Calgarians Tegan and Sara, she got her start musically by playing in a punk band named Placebo (but not Placebo), which actually opened for the Ramones. I don't know how in the world I got this (stalker complex, probably), but I've somehow acquired their recording, entitled Don't Drink The Bathwater. It's a bit jarring, and perhaps it's not surprising that she had to take time off to recover her voice in the wake of the band. But for those of you craving something a bit more...familiar, I've also provided the enjoyably lo-fi Red Demos.
