Cheers to The King Khan & BBQ Show

It's been a while between posts here, so thought I'd do an update.

Last Saturday night (June 1) Plastic Section were a support band for the amazing King Khan and BBQ Show at Cosmic Cafe in Bangkok. It was a very fun night with a great crown and brilliant music. As well as being incredible performers, King Khan and BBQ were also great guys, happily signing the 7" singles they were selling (cheap too!), chatting with everybody and watching the support bands. Mark Sultan even very kindly gave me a copy of his "$" CD, which is excellent and highly recommended! Thanks also to Popscene for organizing another great event in Bangkok, and to The Standards who always put on a high-energy, exciting performance.

This gig was also the first with Plastic Section as a 3-piece, as Wannarit Pongprayoon (Pok) has joined myself and drummer (as well as guitarist) Put Wednesday Suksriwan  to play bass, filling out our sound in a very satisfying way.

In other news, Plastic Section's new album is about to be released on CD by Panda Records in Thailand. I'll post the cover, track list and details on how to grab a copy here when it's out.. any day now!

And finally, our next gig is on Saturday night at a new beer joint in Bangkok called Hemmingway's, near Asoke BTS station in Sukhumvit. We're on at 7pm - details here

One more thing - writer and Bangkok resident Dave Crimaldi has written some very kind words about Plastic Section on his excellent blog about the Thai indie scene. You can check it out here if you're interested.
