Artist: Plastic Cloud




Don Brewer (guitar, vocals)
Brian Madill (bass)
Michael Cadieux (guitar) Randy Umphrey (drums)

This 4-piece act from Pickering, Ontario were a mysterious blend of psychedelia and Tolkien mythology. In the 30 years since the release of their only album -- 1968's self-titled effort, very little is known about this act except that they could be compared, stylistically, to Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Chocolate Watchband or any other psychedelic/progressive act from the late sixties.

Like Reign Ghost, Plastic Cloud were trying to expand the boundaries set by flaccid Canadian AM radio at the time and were very inaccessible to radio which would explain their one and only release.

Research has failed to turn up any mention of this act and even Laser's Edge, who re-issued their single disc in 1991, 1998, and Pacemaker who re-issued it in 2004 has no additional information on them.
