Plastic Nancy was a hobby of mine between 2002 and 2005 when I decided to kill off the fictional Howard Place, frontman for the virtual band and pack it in. I will still write but if the stuff's gonna be heard in the future it would have to be real - either straight acoustic guitar and vocal or as part of a band. check me out on myspace www.myspace.com/thebandcalledplasticnancy Since writing the above I have recently started to record again but not as Plastic Nancy. Hear the work in progress at www.soundcloud.com/howardplace
Band/artist history
March 2002 - buy BR532 and start arranging and recording some of the many songs I have written since 1979 September 2002 - cracked the problem of getting the BR files to mp3 using free software only and a 10 Smart Card reader " Slings 'n' Arrows " appears on the newly created website - www.freewebs.com/plasticnancy Approximately one new mp3 per month appeared on this website until March 2005 Really struggling with " I Would Drown " I decided to jack it in. Killing Howard Place seemed to be a good way to end it all.
