Out now: Lockman - Turn Out the Lights

Plastic Passion proudly presents the new band Lockman and their debut ep Turn Out the Lights.

Lockman is not afraid of the blues and the country but they love indie rock and especially NYC punk. So Lockman is the missing link between Bo Diddley and Television - interesting Fender interventions, juicy riffs, and bouncy basslines backed by drum fills you would never expect. Check them out and tell us how we sound!

Turn Out the Light is released on December 17th in CD and MP3 format.
CD can be ordered from Plastic Passion's webstore (5 eur - Europe, 6 eur - Row; prices include p&p)or bought in the indie friendly record stores.
