Formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1980, Plasticland were one of the first of the so-called neo-psychedelic bands. Emerging from the Krautrock-inspired Arousing Polaris, Plasticland were based around John Frankovic (bass) and Glenn Rehse (guitar, vocals, organ). They played, and occasionally still play, a lyrically whimsical brand of psychedelia inspired by British psychedelia of the late 1960s ('S.F. Sorrow' era Pretty Things, and 'Piper at the Gates of Dawn' Pink Floyd immediately spring to mind. Unlike many of the 80s neo-psych or garage bands they did more than produce a simple pastiche of the earlier era and brought a new edge to the sounds giving them a recognisably unique sound.
