New release: Plastic Dolls - Off The Bench (album)
Songs about Blues, Baseball and other Bitches
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
PLASTIC DOLLS is a brand new band with a life before. The life before: a punk-garage-blues band, starting as a duo (guitarboy, drumgirl) and ending up as a 7 piece band including a horn section. The Plastic Dolls released four very well received albums: 'Boys are worse than girls', 'Blindfolded', 'The morning lasts forever' and 'Where is the world?'. Singer-songwriter Hans Ter Burg performed solo for a while, in Dutch clubs but also in Texas and New York. And the band had some hiccups in different line ups.
So what's brand new? THE Plastic Dolls is PLASTIC DOLLS now. Energy, songs and sounds, all brand new. Elaborate lyrics, unpolished music. PLASTIC DOLLS walk the raw side. This is not a band making a restart with old stuff! The EP Off The Bench contains 6 songs about Blues, Baseball and other Bitches.
After first single The Runner, teaser I Don't Sing The Blues (Dobro version) and the latest single I Don't Sing The Blues (noisy band version), the PLASTIC DOLLS' EP Off The Bench is completed by 3 more songs:
Ferry Girl (Album focus single)
The splendid artwork, showing how all the separate singles and tracks fit together to form a baseball field, is by Goof Vermeulen.

Except: I Don't Sing The Blues (Dobro version) and The Bench recorded by Louis Ter Burg @Nuts Studio in Amsterdam. Vocals, guitar and dobro: Hans Ter Burg.
