Maybe “Bioground” will release an album on Plastic City in the year 2005. Maybe “The Mulder” and “The Kelly Project” just hand in their new singles on Plastic City. Who knows? Maybe the current era will be entitled ‘Maybe Plastic City’ in the label history. Maybe you will like the idea. Maybe we will take some time to redesign the whole website again for a new era, maybe we stay in the sun and do this later. Maybe life has a meaning, maybe you will find it, maybe we will show you… …maybe it’s just 42…
