Can you describe their music?

Progressive underground. If you like Frank Zappa and the Velvet Underground or more experimental varieties of hard rock, you may like it. To be honest, most people won't. You need a pretty high tolerance for atonal saxophone and electric violin and for relentless bass riffs. If you have that, you may find the music conducive to trances and Orphic frenzies; if not, you may find it an agony.

Thanks. I did pull it up on Youtube and you're right you either like or you don't. I can see its appeal, but for me not so much.

No vendor links ? And yet no "Not released yet" tag ? Plus one recommandation ?

It's a release by the czech EMI division, so it could be more difficult to get through the usual channels.

The copyright says 2010 and there is no Warner info. Is this an old release? If yes, it could already be OOP.

I'll stick with either the real Zappa or some avant garde jazz like Mingus' The Black Saint and The Sinner Lady on Impulse....or The Bad Plus and/or Medeski, Wood and Martin.

The videos of the band on you tube are pretty out there.

Anybody knows where to get this disc ? There were vendor links for 2 days and then nothing ... Impossible to find it.

I think it was only released in the Czech Republic, you might want to check out stores from there.

The Amazon seller I bought it from appears still to have it in stock on its own website:

Well, I got mine in the mail today. Just listening to it. It's better than I thought it would be.
In fact, I must admit that I like this stuff.

But... I can't help imagining Bill Murray in Broken Flowers. ;-)

Now that is coincidental: I just opened mine too; received it this morning! I think I might post a review at some point. Plastic People is an important band in underground circles.
