The EP's 1st digital album interview with PLASTIC EP "MAKE A RECORD" ..........TRACK 1 This is the first song Wally and I wrote together !!!........wrote out all the lyrics on a sheet of paper........l sang it to him and told him to fix it and l'd be back in a week !! The song's original title was "Well you want to make a record" and we called it that for many years until a producer / engineer friend told us to shorten it and we did. The songs all about going into a studio and actually singing about the process of making a record .......you know a vinyl record how they used to record it the old way in the studio !!!!...........Listen to this song and turn it up......your neighbours will love it.............or maybe your pets............cats and dogs will ! "SOMETHING TO ME",,,,,,,,,,TRACK 2 .....yeah, this a perfect pop song,love the vocals Vas singing with me and playing acoustic guitar.........l love Vicky singing in the middle of the song..............this is our EP's sound......l say "lets go" for the intro of the lead part of the song. 10/10 for this track !!! "WHEN IT COMES TO YOU"....TRACK 3........this song goes straight to the heart, an ep's sounding love ballad pop song........I do most of the backup vocals, the high parts........Wally's singing too !............I always love listening to it.........I wrote it as a dedication to Vicky. "ONE DAY SHE'LL BE MINE".....TRACK 4........Wally's fav track.........love the acoustic guitar and the bass, it's got a spanish love song feel to it. I remember singing all the words making them up as I recorded the song !!! "DO LOVE - DO LOVE" .....TRACK 5.............wrote this song about love just to sing it as a duet with Vicky..............the songs giving the message if you love me then do love do love...........do you love me?............I love you too ! "AT HOME".............. TRACK 6...my signature song.........1st song I wrote..........first song the ep's recorded.............came out as a 45rpm single in 1981, 500 copies made.........virtually impossible to find !!!!............it came out under the name PLASTIC EP AND THE RECORDS !!!..........this is before we became the ep's in 1982. I get requested from people wanting to buy the original single.....they say name your price !!!...........I really can't help them...........the original !/4 tape master has disolved into itself, lucky for me l transfered it to digital !!....the sound is punk / rock..............it's us..........it's unique.....it's raw and it's me !! "THAT GIRL JUST DRIVES ME WILD"....TRACK 7......Wally and l do a great job.........the shortest song with the wildest sound !!! "THAT'S YOU" ....TRACK 8..............dedicated to Vicky...........I say it in the first line of the verse............she does great backup vocals with her cousin Kerry ( I know her as KOULA ...........and there's a mystery singer singing lead vocals with me ? "IT"S GOT TO BE LOVE"....TRACK 9............I Love this song..........it's circus pop organ sound.........I wish I could have released it in 1967 when I was 9 years old !!! ...........Where were you then Wally ?.............Wally's bass and guitar playing is great and Michael's organ playing is ace !!! I recorded the vocals again over the original master and asked Wally to add bass because we forgot to do it !!! "DOES THIS GIRL REALLY LOVE ME" ...TRACK 10...........this is a true ep's song.........it asks questions about a boy / girl love relationship. It's just Wally and I writing a song in a pure simplistic form. "LOVE IS WAITING TO FIND YOU"......TRACK 11..........Wally's playing great on the track.........Vicky and I sing a duet........the song is about how love will eventually find you...........and you will find love..........a true love..............even though it hasn't happened............just hang in there and wait. "DON'T GET UPSET"........TRACK 12............I've got friends that just love this song and I get a buzz when they sing it........and they remember the words..........Wally and I just wrote it without any effort. "GO STRAIGHT TO THE TOP OF THE CHARTS".......TRACK 13.............I love the sound effects of the jet sound going higher and higher. This song really reminds me of all those 60's and 70's pop shows that played the no.1 top song at the end of the show. It's a song about a song going straight to no.1 on the charts !! "I'D BE LOST WITHOUT A GIRL LIKE YOU".....TRACK 14........this songs raw rock.........I sang this song a million times over before I decided to record it with Wally. The demo I had of the song helped me to finally get that song together after a long time because I didn't want to rush the track. "SO MUCH LOVE".....TRACK 15..........an early ep's song..........love the organ and the guitar lead part................the longer version of this song not released starts with me singing a scale of notes..........one day I might release it. "THE EP'S THEME SONG".........TRACK 16............I know people in their 30's and 40's who love this track...............that shows it's a good song if they sing along to it !!............Hey the ep's needed a theme song so Wally and I wrote this in 15 mins.......a .simple song with Wally playing acoustic guitar, I added the sound effects by accident and that worked out. Vicky joined in to sing because she was watching while Wally and I wrote it. Yes it's a gem of a song !!!! Hope you enjoy "THE EP'S WORLDWIDE FANCLUB" as much as I do !!! We released 13 albums in one go..............and this is THE EP'S 1st album... all the best from PLASTIC EP, WALLY, VICKY, VAS AND MICHAEL...... We are THE EP's. AMAZING EP'S SONGWRITING FACTS !! "There's better ways baby"........the song came to Plastic EP while he was taking a shower !! but what's more amazing is the song "Hey bananas, we think you're groovy".....came to him while he was having a bath !!!!!!......... this proves 2 things, not only can you write songs anywhere, but you stay clean in the meantime as well !!! On the song "Remember the sound (Part 1)" original EP member Greg played lead guitair.......that part was so complcated that Wally deleted the guitair solo !!! When the session ended Greg said I can't hear the guitair part in the playback? Wally replied "don't worry about it you'll hear it in the final mix" !!!! ?? "At Home" is not only the first song the ep's recorded but it's also Plastic EP's signature song !!!.........he'll definately be remembered for that one !!! The ep's put that song out as their first 45rpm single in 1981.....only 500 copies exist.....the band was then called .... PlasticEP and the Records,on the second single "Forget all l said" they offically became THE EP'S in 1982 AFTER THE EP'S RECORDED "REMEMBER THE SOUND (PART 1)"........SOMEONE AT THE RECORDING SESSION SAID TO PLASTIC EP "THAT'S A GREAT SONG, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT?". PLASTIC EP REPLIED " I'LL PUT IT AWAY IN A CUPBOARD FOR 20 YEARS AND THEN RELEASE IT ". THE SONG " POP STAR MANIA"....CAME TO PLASTIC EP AS ONE SENTENCE.... "IT'S POP STAR MANIA, DO YOU LIVE IN TASMANIA?" PLASTIC EP LIKES THE EP SONGS WHERE VICKY SINGS HARMONIES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRACK EG......"SOMETHING TO ME". ONCE PLASTIC EP ASKED VICKY TO SING ALONG TO A SONG AS BACKUP VOCALS, WHEN HE KNEW SHE WOULD SING LEAD, BY LATER REMOVING HIS VOCALS FROM THE TRACK, SHE DID SING LEAD WITHOUT KNOWING IT !! ONE OF PLASTIC EP'S FAV VICKY SONGS IS "WHEN IT'S TIME TO ROCK !". PLASTIC EP TOLD WALLY THAT HE WANTED TO DO AN ALBUM OF SONGS BY JUST MAKING THEM UP TO SEE IF IT WOULD BE A DUD ALBUM, SO HE COULD JUDGE HIS LOWEST SONGWRITING ABILITY.AS IT TURNED OUT THE SONGS WERE VERY GOOD...........THAT ALBUM IS CALLED RUBBER FOCCACIO. CHERRY MUSTARD IS A DIGITAL ALBUM WHERE CERTAIN EP'S SONGS WERE PLAYED IN REVERSE SO PLASTIC EP COULD SEE WHAT LYRICS HE COULD MAKE UP OVER THE MUSIC ! TWO EP'S FANS TOLD WALLY THEY MISTOOK THE WORDS "COME ON OUT BABY JULIE" AS "COME ON OUT BABY CHEW ME !"??
