Plastic Toys - For Tonight Only

Rejecting a plethora of recording contracts in favour of striking out on their own label, Hill Valley Records, Plastic Toys now have the chance to deliver on their massive display of confidence. Well, you’d be a bit cocky yourself if you knew you had an album like this in the offing!

There’s no let-up in the kicking electro-rock and barely a moment passes without a quality hook, stomping dancy beat and lyrics delivered with balls the size of bus-wheels.

They’ve crammed so much into every song, it seems like a bit of an injustice to pick out any tracks in particular for individual praise. However, if I was to do so, ‘Tonight Only’, ‘Dirty’, and ‘Spaceman’ would certainly get a mention!

For Tonight Only is a stomping rock record that’s dead-cert to get people talking about Plastic Toys in the kind of excited tones that have been missing from the mainstream scene for so long.
