We are the Porcupine Tree of the Netherlands. The sound is progressive rock with Britpop melodies and always with critical lyrics, like our new allbum Plastic Soup. It describes the Great Garbage Patch of plastic debris in our ocean. Founder Charles Moore participated on the project (voice over)

Biography

PBII is the next generation of the symphonic rock band Plackband and started in 2008. Our influences used to be bands like Genesis, Pink Floyed and Yes. But PBII is inspirated by more modern bands like Porcupine Tree, Kings of Leon, An Endless Sporadic and Frost*. PBII likes to sound modern, progressive but alway with easy Britpop melodies. Our theme's are society critical, like our new album Plastic Soup. Our gigi are different from any other band we know, because of the HQ sound (we use our own digital sound system), lights, projections and effects.

Lyrics

Plastic Soup

Written By: Kees Bik

Dark and grim the waters
Pounding on the coast
But it´s not this force of nature
That bothers me the most
For when the tide is falling
And the waters leave the land
There are piles and piles of rubbish
Covering the sand

The Garbage Patch, is made of waste
It suffocates the seas
Which idiots have caused this mess,
Well, hell, it´s you and me.

It’s plastic soup, it chokes the oceans
While all of mankind fails
Will we ever hear again
The singing of the whales

As guardians of the world
We messed up big time
Have we never learned
We paid for sins and crimes

Plastic soup, it chokes the oceans
While all of mankind fails
Will we ever hear again
The singing of the whales

Dark and grim the waters
Of the bounding main
Time to pay the ferryman
The seas and earth unchain

Dreaming of the oceans
Unspoiled and clean
Dreaming of the oceans

Plastic soup, it chokes the oceans
While all of mankind fails
Will we ever hear again
The singing of the whales
While all of mankind fails
The singing of the whales

Changing Habits

Written By: PBII

Why not fight this Plastic War
In changing habits more and more
Yet we all but close our eyes ...
For only selfish lies, such selfish lies
Let’s clean up this garbage more and more
