Plastics (group)

Plastics or, alternately, The Plastics were a short-lived Japanese pop group prominent in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Though they were short lived, their music was a major influence on Japanese pop music and have been covered by many bands, most notably Polysics, and Pizzicato Five (covering the song "Good" from Origato Plastico). The bands Talking Heads, B-52s, Devo were big fans of Plastics, and may have helped get their albums released in the US. Their mainstream exposure began when Toshio Nakanishi designed a tour program book for Talking Heads and slipped David Byrne a tape of Plastics demos. Byrne promptly sent it to the B-52s' manager who offered to represent them internationally.
