Kitty Litter

Album: Battle For The Sun (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first Placebo album that drummer Steve Forrest played on. For Forrest, jamming on this track on his first day in the studio was a defining moment. He explained to Clickmusic: "From the very first time we played together, it just popped into my head that this is the last band I am ever going to be in. It was on my first day and in the first five minutes playing with each other, but as soon as we started jamming 'Kitty Litter,' I just felt it: I'm not going anywhere and I am going to make damn sure I get this job and keep it, you have gone 15 years and I am going to take you 15 more. So, I think the very first time we played together was the defining moment. For me it was like this is the band I have been searching for all these years, I have played with all these different bands and dealt with different people but it was like finally I have found it, I've found the love of my life. [laughs]"
