Featuring ex-members of the witty robotic ensemble Servitron, the Plastic Plan hint around the same lines as their former band. With a heavy dose of android synthesizers and the occasional guidance of surf guitar leads, their full-length debut, Basic, comes across as the perfect soundtrack for any science educational film from the 1970s. The lack of a bassist and vocalist makes the Plastic Plan's sound empty and monotonous after a while. But with their hi-tech gadgetry and assembly line paced instrumentals, their uniqueness sets the Plastic Plan apart from any other retro-crazed collaboration.
