Check out this KJHK station ID for the Plastics, the Japanese Devo, or the Japanese B-52s, whichever you prefer. Here they are from 1980, from YouTube of course:

I wanted to post a quick note before I went to bed to say Hyperopia was wonderful at the Record Bar in Kansas City tonight. In case you don't know, the band features Lori Wray (formerly of Minneapolis, and Lawrence before that, think Von Bulows) and drummer Steve Eddy, formerly of the Micronotz, plus Steve Dahlberg (of Ricky Dean Sinatra fame) and Kirk Larson (ex-Random Aztec). They played for about an hour as the opening band and threw in a bevy of originals including my current fave "Last Goodbye". The show ended with a spirited cover of the Embarrassment's "D-Rings". I'll be tired tomorrow at work, but I'm glad I saw the band. Thanks!
More Good news: They play again in Lawrence on October 19th at the Jackpot Saloon.
