PPU - ONLY NEW ENGLAND APPEARANCE!  Wow - a rare opportunity to see the legendary PPU live in an intimate art gallery setting - AS220 in Providence, RI.

PLASTIC PEOPLE OF THE UNIVERSE:  A Prague-based psychedelic rock band formed in 1968, shortly after the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia. The band's nonconformist style and attitudes ran afoul of officially sanctioned norms, and the Plastic People often held their performances in secret locations outside of Prague in an attempt (frequently unsuccessful) to avoid conflicts with the authorities. Police often broke up concerts, sometimes arresting or beating fans and band members. After one such concert in February 1976, police arrested twenty-seven musicians and fans, and four were eventually sentenced to prison terms of 18 to 8 months on charges of organized disturbance of the peace. The Plastic People trial was a major spur to the creation of the Charter 77 movement. "...a Velvets-Beefheart-Zappa stew with Czech lyrics, free jazz saxophone, grungy viola, crunchy guitar solos, etc., but what makes it unique is the applause. This audience knows that rock & roll can start a revolution and set you free: It happened." (Steven Merritt, TimeOutNY)  "The music of the Plastics has absorbed something essential from this spirit of space and time.... encoded within it is an important warning, some highly specified information about the existential fine tuning of people who find themselves in a place where the knots of history are tied and unraveled." (Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Republic)  http://www.plasticpeople.cz/

SUISHOU NO FUNE [say "soo-ee-sho no foo-nay"] translates as 'ship of crystal'.  This amazing psychedelic band was formed by Pirako Kurenai and Kageo in Tokyo, July,1999.  "The artistic sound is the psychedelic Rock that twin guitars work that is full of sensitivity by the freedom that is not bound by stereotype. Suishou no Fune is magic music." http://suishounofune.web.infoseek.co.jp
