After their Plastics revival unit Plastic Sex that released an album last year, ex-Plastics' leader Nakanishi Toshio and ex-Pizzicato Five singer Nomiya Maki are back again with another brand new project, Plastic Folk / Plastic Knife ("folk" when written out in katakana can also read "fork"). The concept revolves around playing glam rock in a folk way.
The band will also feature members Ōnishi Tsuru on guitar and bass, and also Noemi (dancer from girls-only bar Goldfinger) and Monō Akiko (actress who appeared in films "Stereo Future" and "Samurai Fiction") on chorus. When performing live, they will be joined by Funky Gong (of Joujouka), Yashiki Gōta, Shiino Kyōichi and possibly others.
Their first release will be no less than a 2-CD album, the first CD featuring only original songs, and the second one covers of David Bowie, Terence Trent D'arby, Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, New York Dolls, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Bryan Ferry, Tim Buckley, and also To's bands Plastics and Melon.
