Kitchen and the Plastic Spoons is an experimental synthesizer based punk band from Sweden, formed "by chance" in the spring of 1980. The group disbanded in November 1981. Before disbanding, they released two singles and three tracks for compilation albums. Since disbanding, their songs have become well sought-after by collectors of punk, gothic rock, deathrock and art punk music. The band reformed in 2008 and played the Drop Dead Festival, October 8-12 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal. They plan to perform occasionally at Synth and Goth-oriented venues and festivals.
