Win | The Plastics at The Assembly

The Plastics have just released their brand new album, entitled Pyramid. The 10 tracks were recorded at Dreamspace Recording Studios in the heart of Woodstock, Cape Town giving it a uniquely Mother City feel – which is probably half the reason Stereo Kids peaked at nr. 8 on the 5FM Top 40 in April this year.

Pyramid is different from their debut album, Shark, in that it features far more upbeat, party tunes. It features a variety of party songs – from indie dance tracks to psychedelic 60ʼs pop type songs, to riff rock songs the likes of which they wrote when they first started the band.

The Plastics

After a nationwide tour of album launches, The Plastics return to Cape Town for the massive home town launch party.

Al Bairre, Beach Party, DJ Sideshow and MudBlud will be joining the party. The Assembly will be transformed into another universe, so expect your mind to be blown by the decor!

“Pyramid has been a labour of love for us for 2 years and weʼre excited that itʼs getting out into the world now.  Besides us being extremely proud of all the songs, the whole package is quite a unique piece of art, given that so many talented designers and artists came together to create such beautiful artwork for each song, which you will see in the booklet.  We canʼt wait to tour the country again and play the new songs to all our fans!”

The Plastics will be ending off the Plastic Pyramid tour with at The Assembly and Cape Town Music Scene 2 double tickets that you could win! All you have to do is comment with your email address and tell us what you would do inside a Plastic Pyramid!

    Forgot to say what I would do inside the Plastic Pyramid! So basically, inside of the pyramid, myself and the members of The Plastics would build a super sonic spaceship to tour the world in and rock the faces off people from different lands. We would then come back to the pyramid and throw the biggest party SA has ever seen. People of every age, race and nationalities would come party. This would continue for a few days. Oh yes and free black label for everyone. AWEH

    Getting inside a Plastic Pyramid would prove to be tricky, but armed with my ‘Mission impossible’ skills i would avoid all the booby traps * ( pun intended )
    Once inside i shall awaken sacred members of the all mighty Plastics. They will rise from there sarcophagus in their traditionally jamming demeanour with their sexy accents and jamming vibe.

    Together we would locate all the ‘Best Pretenders’ and ‘Out Of This Town’ as we are tried of their ‘Occasional Lies’ .’ Sooner Than Later’ we will rock ‘Out Of This Town’ on the search of ‘Mud and Money’. Next we will find all the ‘Stereo Kids’ in the pyramids ‘Hallway of Mirrors’.
    Finally we will rule the world !
    and yes free beer for everyone!

    Apparently there’s research to suggest that meditating inside a pyramid alters your brainwaves so that you enter a more intuitive, creative state of mind.

    So – if I were to find myself inside a plastic pyramid, I would meditate until such time as I was ready to help ‘The Plastics’ develop their next piece of musical genius… An exercise which I would no doubt love every minute of!

    I recently got retrenched, this is my second week of (f)unemployment. Truth is, not having to work isn’t actually all that fun when you have bills to pay. If I can’t find a job soon, I won’t be able to pay rent, so I would totally use that plastic pyramid as my new home. Every new home needs a housewarming party, and no house party would be complete without some rad tunes, supplied by The Plastics (only the best for me). I could also rent out the pyramid for trance parties or whatever electro stuff usually happens in pyramids and that way I’d be making some cash too. Entrepreneur style!
    So technically, I’d be sticking it to the man and starting my own business and showing all those office suits that I don’t need them! YES! Viva!

    (Also, there’s no way I can afford to pay cover for Friday, so the prize would be great)

    I freaking love the Plastics (and Beach Party!) so much! If I had a plastic pyramid – apart from trapping the band inside to play for me whenever I want – I would fill it with beach sand and sea water and pool noodles and beach balls, to have an epic portable beach that everyone can chill in in the city to quell the summer heat. I would love to go to this show so, so, so much!
