The Red Plastic Buddha burst out of Chicago’s psychedelic underground in late 2007 with the release of their debut CD Sunflower Sessions (Spade Kitty - SK024). Although one catches glimpses of Swinging London circa 1967 in their sound, the Buddhas use the paisley template as a mere starting point for their catchy pop masterpieces.
Hailed by music critics Greg Kot (Chicago Tribune) “I’m really digging The Red Plastic Buddha” and Richard Deakin (Shindig! UK) “The Red Plastic Buddha really nail their garage psych credentials”, this Chicago 5-piece are setting a new standard for indie rock.
The Red Plastic Buddha draw frequent comparisons to Barrett-era Pink Floyd, Love, Tomorrow and early Who, as well as contemporaries Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols. In 2010, The Red Plastic Buddha will release two CDs, All Out Revolution (spring) and The Seahorse EP (fall)
