Note from Jon Toy
Plastic People,

As a lot of you have seen our website got hacked and the forum is out of action. It should be fixed within a week, but we can't promise anything, its up to our tech guy to sort out.

Better news is that we have 2 more shows confirmed for later in the year:
31st October @ The Nexus, Southampton with Karn8. This is going to be a great Haloween night
5th November @ The Joiners, Southampton with Rico.

There will be more gigs booked before these as i know a lot of you are getting withdrawal symptoms.

In the meantime you can hear us on www.totalrock.com , e-mail them on studio@totalrock.com and make a request for your favourite PT track. We have just been invitied there too for an interview on the 25th August, more details on the exact time to come.

That's it for now,

Yeah, first time I've seen 'em, so it was a treat. The sound was excellent - sound you could really feel, and a great mix. It's a shame there were other bands to come on after them, could've done with a longer set, but that's just me being greedy. I've no idea what songs they played cos I don't know any of the titles - well, apart from Fever, of course - that's gotta be the best version since the Cramps. hmmm, maybe if I'd bought one of their CDs I'd know a bit more about what they played!! Got a bit distracted again...

They were up for it and having a good time, and that really came across. You couldn't help but enjoy it. So Plan A were lucky buggers to have such a great warmup band, they'd halfway won the audience before they even came on.
