The Fantastic Plastics celebrate release of "Devolver" at Pianos on 09.12

The Fantastic Plastics celebrate release of "Devolver" at Pianos on 09.12

Brooklyn's retro electronic duo The Fantastic Plastics aren't nearly nerdy enough to sound like Devo, though we appreciate their obsession with the visual side of that band. They treat Devo the way Warhol treated Campbell's Soup - like a brand. Sure, Devo was once anarchical and dangerous, but now they're not. There's something cheeky about Fantastic Plastics, especially having this cute pixie chick run around in dresses shaped like Devo helmets. Their cool eye for urbanism and design blends a love of kitsch with a hatred for commercialism. You can see them live at Pianos this Saturday 09.12, when they'll be celebrating the release of their new EP entitled "Devolver" - look out for a video installation and a "graphic novel." - Brian Chidester
