The Age Of Plastic was the first album released by synthpop group The Buggles, which consisted of Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes. The album is a concept album, with themes of intense nostalgia and anxiety about the possible effects of modern technology. It followed the success of their first single, "Video Killed The Radio Star" (1979), which had reached No. 1 in the UK singles chart. Three other singles ("Living In The Plastic Age", "Clean, Clean" and "Elstree") were released from the album, but met with considerably less success.
