Siren songs and torche singers, from the funkiest of soul divas to twee indie pop chanteuses, riot grrls and pro-active MCs – Drastic on Plastic celebrates women in music across all styles and genres in as many different musical contexts as possible.
For over thirty years, Drastic on Plastic has been highlighting the vital role that women play in music, not only in providing a counterpoint to the male-dominated music industry, but as innovators and experimenters in their own right, and as spokespeople for their generations, their cultures and their gender.
Drawing from underground rock, indie pop, smouldering funk, soul and disco grooves, Drastic on Plastic ensures that women’s voices are heard a little louder, a little longer.
It's a DIY post punk-indie pop-lady fest! Featuring special guest BABS aka Barbara Parnaby ex-1990's RTR presenter of Drastic on Plastic and much loved letter request show STEREO-GO-ROUND!
