Les Inrocks : Is it this subversive side that attract you in the musical project Trash Palace, by the French Dimitri Tikovoï?
Brian Molko : It was just for fun! Dimitri Tikovoï is my buddy. We have the same sense of humour, porn makes us laugh. What is strange is that people, the media, everybody took us very seriously. So, it was even more jubilant. On another note, I've also work with the German DJ Timo Maas.

About the co-operation with Asia Argento . . .
She asked me to do a song for the soundtrack of her movie “ingannevole è il cuore più di ogni altra cosa”. I accepted and it came out a very hard work because I recorded my vocals parts in london and she did them in rome, calling us by phone for hours in order to re-listen all. It was like making sex on the phone… frustrating.
(Interviewer): so why you did it?. . .
Because of the friendship with Asia and because of my esteem toward Jt. Leroy. I met him during the movie actions, he’s a genious, I think the best author of his generation. "

You once covered "Je t'aime... moi non plus" with Asia Argento in the part of Serge Gainsbourg, and yourself in the part of Jane Birkin. The title track of "Meds" is a duet with Alison Mosshart aka VV of The Kills. Alison and Asia are 2 skinny, pale, androginous, black-haired girls. They could be your sisters.
BM : Well, I've always thought that love is quite a narcissistic thing. You like to see yourself reflected in your lover. Not that I was ever involved with those two, but I do think they're very beautiful women. And a duet always sounds better with someone you have the hots for."
