This would be the blurb from the packaging, then:

Placebo are inarguably the cream of the crop when it comes to modern day Glam Rock. Following in David Bowie's footspets (sic) with their cross-dressing costumes and and powder white make-up, they have not only developed the genre intoa new millenuim phenomena, but have also played in a hit film based on the scene's 1970's origins. Theatrical shows, catchy tunes, bizarre yet poetic lyrics and androgyny' tells the tale of this strange collective. It follows their journey from a chance meeting at a London tube station, to playing festivals and arenas around the globe. It reveals what has influenced and shaped them into becoming one of the biggest cult acts in the world today, and predicts what lies ahead.

Features exclusive interviews with the band, rarely seen photographs (some from private collections), location clips and a host of other features.
