1. The Plastics are a live performance orientated South African band. The Plastics started in late 2007 when the Righini brothers decided to expand their old punk band HOAX, and reform it with a fresh take on music. Having been constricted for too long by boundaries and bursting with new ideas that wouldn’t fit into any mould, they set about creating The Plastics. Soon after they started this endeavour, classically trained guitarist Karl Rohloff joined the band on bass and Arjuna Kohlstock on lead guitar to create the retro blend of bluesy indie, disco-punk sound that is known as The Plastics today. They released their first self-titled EP, The Plastics, in 2007 and a second EP, called Kiss The Plastics, in 2008 by way of mass production and distributed a 1000 copies of each release for free. 2.
