Placebo (Belgian jazz fusion band)
Ball Of Eyes

Long before Brian Molko et al started kicking up a fuss there was a fusion act who were also called Placebo. The group - whose leader Marc Moulin was the first Belgian to own a Moog synthesiser - released three LPs in the 1970s, and it is 1971’s Ball Of Eyes which now gets a re-press. It’s a well-heeled collection of jazz-funk that tows the line between library pastiche and faithful homage. J Dilla and Madlib are among the artists who’ve sampled this record.

Placebo (Belgian jazz fusion band)
1973

Placebo get the second of their three LPs reissued by Music On Vinyl. This Belgian group are not to be confused with the alt-rock legends of the same name - in fact, the elegant jazz-funk struts of 1973 are about as far away from Brian Molko’s thrashy angst as you can get. The press release for 1973 claims that Placebo leader Marc Moulin was the first Belgian to own a Moog, which is pretty cool if true. Whether it is or not, there are certainly synth grooves aplenty all over this album.

Placebo

Long before Brian Molko, MTV and all that, there was a Belgian jazz fusion act called Placebo. Led by lowlands jazz legend Marc Moulin, the band released a run of LPs throughout the first half of the 1970s. Here we have their eponymous 1974 album spruced up for reissue by Music On Vinyl. This is one of Placebo's funkiest offerings, full of ripping licks and grooves that suggest the band might have owned a copy of Herbie Hancock's Head Hunters.
