The best kept secret in music


"Plutoniun Kid review"

These Portland-based rockers show plenty of potential. Plutonium Kid starts off with a bang -- an oh-so-tasty Buzzcocks-style drum riff that coils everything up, building up to a high-powered melodic explosion and a super sing-along chorus. It's a catchy, happy throwback to the '80s, with just enough keyboard action in the melody to make it danceable. The lyrics are lighthearted and cute, and the obligatory guitar solo gets the job done but doesn't stick around for cigars and brandy.
"1978" is a heartfelt ode that all of us born in that decade can relate to. As vocalist Reggie says, "I was born in 1978 / I came just a little too late / To ever be a part of anything / Nothing going on." It's a chip that many music fans of a similar vintage have on their shoulders, and "1978" captures it perfectly. It also has a great beat, as fast and catchy as the Briefs' base work.

If Glassine can duplicate Plutonium Kid's success on a full-length, they'll be fending off creepy major label talent scouts before they know it.

Feeling a bit camera shy


I could describe the band in embellishing detail but what good will that do. Who cares what I think of us. For now we are only concerned with what you think of us because we want to be on the roster for the festival. Our influences include but are not limited to music of the past, the present and the future. And I'm not going to try and convince you we're supergrass meets the replacements and new order either. I'll simply say that our live shows range from being really good to not as good as other times and that we have almost finished recording a full length record (just rough mixes at this point). I'm sure the next step in the sonicbids thing will have me upload mp3's. Please give them a spin or a click or whatever and book us for the festival if you like. thanks. - Joe
