zdbd – plastic people

Plastic People begins with immediate satire – the President of the US addresses his citizens, but he’s been sick. A warped and wonky Louie Louie gives way to the shaking tambourine and percussion of the hook line, before a jittery transition returns the hook, smashing from nowhere.

A heavy, warm bass tone contrasts with the trebly rhythm chords. Halfway through the tune, a new melody briefly takes precedence, with high vocalizing supplementing the guitar line.

By the end, the dual-line vocals sound great, overlapping and conflicting as the round drums carry us through the Louie Louie riff.
