about

Synth punk duo The Fantastic Plastics are back with a new LP - Malfunction. With spastic analog synths, frantic guitar hooks, and paranoid vocals, Malfunction captures the essence of 80s new wave idols like The Cars and 90s synth rock icons The Rentals.

The Fantastic Plastics perform songs from Malfunction on their weekly Twitch stream. The band, who are Twitch Affiliates, host a live stream for their fans ("The Plastic Party") every Wednesday night at 9pm EST / 8pm CST. On the stream, they interact with the audience, playing new songs and taking requests from their back catalogue and library of covers. In addition to the weekly stream, Miranda Plastics hosts Twitchcraft sessions where she gives a behind the scenes look into the design of the band's uniforms and other crafts.

Track Name: Disintegration
He found the girl with electric lips
He flipped his lid when she gave him the slip
Radiated by the afterglow
Overwhelmed he couldn’t finish the show

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh
Disintegration

She elevated up above the place
She must have been from outer space
And now there’s no turning back
She nearly gave him a panic attack – ack – ack – ack

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh
Disintegration

He found his girl with atomic kiss
He flipped his lid gave when she gave him the trip
Radiated by the Afterglow
Now they’re burning bright in stereo

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh
Disintegration
Track Name: Telephone
We went the distance
For the Resistance
Got a message said you need our assistance
From a satellite, in the dead of night
Your transmission said something wasn’t quite right

We tried you on the telephone
The only sound was a dial tone
You’re out there and you’re all alone
The lights are on but no one’s home

Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling)
Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling)

Track Name: Perfect Strangers
We are perfect strangers
Synthesized celluloid danger
Victims of a new regime
Got to keep our fingernails clean
We are perfect strangers
Ignoring signs of danger
Spare parts in the work machine
Got to keep our records real clean

We went to the shopping mall
Just so we could have it all
It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough

We are perfect strangers
Synthesized celluloid danger
Victims of a new regime

It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough
We are perfectly Strange
Track Name: Disconnect
Shouting out your point of view
Got nothing better to do
Positive vibes are immune to you
Only one cure for someone like you

I disconnect from you
Don’t give a damn what you say or do
You said you’re sorry – it wasn’t true
I disconnect from you – I disconnect from you

Live inside your liquid screen
Where no one can hear you scream
Negative vibes in the words you say
Spreading your hate every night and day

I disconnect from you
Don’t give a damn what you say or do
You said you’d change – You never do
I disconnect from you – I disconnect from you

It’s so easy to unfollow you – It’s so easy to unfollow you – It’s so easy to unfollow you
Only one cure for a troll like you
Yeah Yeah Yeah Disconnect from you! - Yeah Yeah Yeah Disconnect from you!
You think you’re special – You’re nothing new
I disconnect from you
Track Name: Numan
Don’t believe what you see
Reality is not TV
Got a number of irrational fears
Plagued the mine for too many years

Modified and optimized
Recognized as compromised
Baseline out of sync
Cells interlinked

Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan )
Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan )

Don’t believe your TV
We’re not as dumb as you need to be
Now we must Recalibrate,
Oscillate, Resonate

Circuit Bent and Malcontent
We don’t care how the money’s spent
Upgrades are out of date
Just in time to activate

Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan )
Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan )
Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan )
Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan )
Track Name: Code Red Cola
Sugar on my mind now Sugar on my tongue
Dripping from my lips I know you want some
Sugar in my veins, Sugar on my brain
Can you taste the Sun? Come and get some.

You’ve been hypnotized, filled your head with lies
Do you realize? I know you want some
Activate your mind, you’re running out of time,
Living on the line. I know you want some

Ooo ooo ooo – Can you Taste It

Oh whoa whoa whoa oh - Catch the Fever

Ooo ooo ooo – Can you feel It

Oh whoa whoa whoa oh - You’ve got the Fever

Sugar on my mind now Sugar on my tongue
Dripping from my lips I know you want some
Sugar in my veins, Sugar on my brain
Can you taste the Sun? Come and get some.

Ooo ooo ooo – Can you Taste It

Oh whoa whoa whoa oh - Catch the Fever

Ooo ooo ooo – Can you feel It

Oh whoa whoa whoa oh - You’ve got the Fever

Track Name: Bad Day
What’s wrong with me? Why am I in this bad mood?
My head kind of aches Because it’s a crummy day

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Guess we’re having a Bad Day

I’m not feeling right. Watching TV all day and night.
I’m OK doing fine. Everything’s just dynamite.
Binged out. Brain Fried.
TV says I’m sick and I don’t know why.
I’m OK doing fine. Everything’s just dynamite.

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Guess we’re having a Bad Day

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Yes we’re having a Bad Day

What’s wrong with me? Why am I in this bad mood?
My head kind of aches Because it’s a crummy day
Binged out. Brain Fried.
TV says I’m sick and I don’t know why.
I’m OK doing fine. Everything’s just dynamite.

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Guess we’re having a Bad Day

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Yes we’re having a Bad Day

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Guess we’re having a Bad Day

Ooo la la la ooo la la la - Ooo la la la ooo la la la

Track Name: Evacuate
It took a lifetime to rebuild the sun
It took a lot of help from everyone
There’s no difference between night and day
There’s no stopping us from running away

We gotta find a way out of out here
There’s something wrong with the atmosphere
The infrastructure rots beneath our toes
Is there a way to fix this nobody knows

Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate

Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate

It took a lifetime to find the unknown
And when we found it should have left it alone
Evacuate before it’s too late
Evacuate or we’ll Disintegrate

Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate

Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate
Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate

Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate
Track Name: Time Song
Time. Time to let it go
You already know
When the sun goes down this place blows up

We can’t run and we can’t hide
Can’t be seen on the inside
We’re all lost and can’t be found
And when the sun comes up this place goes down

Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on
Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on
Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, on and on

Through the mirror we’ve reappeared
It’s no worse than we feared
We’re not lost - We disappeared
Cause we needed a change of atmosphere

Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on
Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on
Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, on and on

Time Song
Time. Time to let it go
You already know
When the sun goes down this place blows up
