The Plastic Pals

”Tighter than Willy DeVille’s crocodile boots” (Anders Tapola, Smålandsposten)

Twin-guitar psychedlic garage paisley powerpop from Stockholm, Sweden. Take the fiery guitars of bands like Television, Flamin´ Groovies and The Dream Syndicate, add a pinch of the Velvet Underground and a dash of magic melodies with a dark edge. Bring to the boil with soulful and groovy drums and bass. Stir well and season to taste with the finest spices from the legacy of rock and roll from Hank to Hendrix, from Gram to The Long Ryders…Bon Appétit!

All three albums from The Plastic Pals have received raving reviews worldwide.
Their album ‘Turn The Tide’ (2013) was produced by Chris Cacavas, ex Green on Red/Giant Sand. Their latest album ‘Psychic Reader’, released in November 2018, features guest artists Chris Cacavas and Jonathan Segel (Camper Van Beethoven)

The Plastic Pals have played gigs in the USA (New York, New Jersey), Norway (Halden) Denmark (Copenhagen) and the UK (London, Essex, Liverpool). They have opened for The Dream Syndicate, Chuck Prophet, The New Christs, The Nomads, Sid Griffin, Chris Cacavas and The Fleshtones.
