2 cents Plain are an unsigned band with an Irish connection. Although the lads are maintaining an almost impenetrable air of mystery, I managed to catch up with Paul, who passed a hallowed demo CD into my hands. 2 Cents Plain are Paul on lead vocals and guitar Mike on guitar and backing vocals, Lee on drums and Foxy on bass and backing vocals.
The strange band name comes from the American slang for that universal hangover remedy, consisting of two aspirins (2 Cents) dropped into a glass of water (constituting the Plain). And this name isn't completely arbitrary. The lads do, it seems, enjoy many a good night and are quite accustomed to the morning after. But it's not doing any harm to their music to judge by their five track demo CD. I was particularly impressed by 'I fell In Love Today' which is simply beautiful, showing off Paul's vocal skill perfectly. 'Killing Time' is also pretty impressive, which hints at something of the bands enjoyment of partying...
