Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


"Straight out of a sci-fi movie... a blurry mix of electric punk and poppy sounds, reminiscent of Talking Heads and acid punk of The Rapture."

- CD Times


"The jumpy energy of Devo and the ecstatic vocal delivery of David Byrne with ADD… The next Hot Hot Heat?"

- Subba-cultcha.com



"this writer is most definitely inpossession of a wang-doodle, these new-wave songs force a grin regardless of gender. An impassioned and feel-good statement of intent" - NME



"An exciteable collision of Duran Duran, Talking Heads and The Rapture. Bold pop with all the awkward energy of a twitchy ketamine addict" UK Music Search

- UK Music Search


"Neon Plastix. Nice name, nice line in art rock. That's art rock, we should add, with the emphasis on the rock, rather than the raised eyebrow and contrite intelligence of…well, we don't want to mention names but let's just say No We Don't Want To and we'd rather rip our own ears off than listen to you ask us again. A n y w a y, ‘Prick Tease', it jolts and jerks and twists and turns like a Talking Heads track being electrocuted by the faulty amp of a iForward Rusia! fender, and when its stabbing serating guitar lines and thrashed-to-fuck rhythm tire themselves out after the briefest of three minutes, your finger will be reaching straight for the repeat button so you can dance once more like it's reached straight into the light socket. Electrocuting.
‘Neon Invasion' is more of the same with an eighties New Order vibe muscling its way into the deranged time signatures and schizophrenic melody. It'll leave you wanting more like the dirty little cock rub it is." - Sandman Magazine


"Although our hearts shrivelled slightly when The Bravery got synth-rock so very, very wrong, self-confessed 'wierd kids' Neon Plastix have managed to strike the jackpot with their own brand of melody drenched bleep-punk. There's hints of Bis, Talking Heads and Hot Hot Heat and an uncanny knack for a Bloody Good Chorus. We misread their vocalists name as 'Danny Hardcore' too, which we thought was amazing until we read it again and realised we made a mistake." - Myspace - Best of 2006


"this one's sure to go mental. imagine the killers amped, pilled and synth'ed up jerking their well-rehearsed new wave moves with punk attitude and pop style aplenty. double-a single for new blow up signings doncaster electro/new wave outfit neon plastix, limited to 1000, think franz, killers, bis, think pop-punk new wave disco floorfiller."
- Rough Trade

Bio

Hailing from Sheffield, UK; living on sunnyside but crossing over the tracks to practice, where they call an industrial welding estate home and nobody minds the electro pop disco racket there!

Since April ’05 they’ve taken over their home town with an explosion of sound, playing their take on influences ranging from Devo, Talking Heads, U2, Japan, The Rapture, The Faint, Hall and Oates……the list is endless. They’ve supported Supersystem, The White Rose Movement, Test Icicles, The Kooks, Clor, The Young Knives, Good Shoes, The Infadels and more.

When they’re not painting your ear canals with musical vibrations, they’re hanging out at their very own club night – CLUB PLASTIX at The Boiler Rooms.
