Before they couldn't, but now they can note 

Created by Thomas Fay Syndicate, The Plastic E-Gulls (TPEG for short) are a virtual/cartoon band, like Gorillaz, The Archies, Evelyn Evelyn and others.

TPEG has a Google site and a Bandcamp page if you're interested. Also stop by Ian's Google+ account.



Studio albums

  • One More for the Road (2014)

TPEG provides examples of the following tropes:

I'm busy going nowhere, and it doesn't sound like fun
But it is when you try it, puttin' trouble on the run
Just like me, just doing nothing, and I'm making it a thing
A thing that I call aimless wandering.
  • Epic Rocking: Three tracks on Sea Base clock in just past five minutes, while "The Girl That Wasn't There" goes on for eleven minutes!

  • Image Song: "To Whom It May Concern" is this for Tina.
  • Instrumentals: At least one per album, and the entirety of Because I Can.
  • Puppy Love: Ian and Ellen first fell in love in first grade.
  • Revolving Door Band: So far, only three-and-a-half albums have Tina on bass.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Ellen's twin sister Mary, who's jealous of Ellen's fame, as illustrated in the song "I Want My Sister Back".
  • Step Up to the Microphone / A Day in the Limelight: While Ian is the primary lead singer, Ellen, Brian and Tina have also had their moments at bat.
  • Textless Album Cover: Air, Fire, Water
  • A Wild Rapper Appears!: Lots of the tracks on Out and About have rap sections, given the hip-hop nature of the album as a whole.
