The Age of Plastic is the first album by synthpop/New Wave group The Buggles, which consisted of Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes, released on Island Records on 4 February 1980. 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", which had reached No. 1 in the UK singles chart in 1979. Three subsequent singles, "Living in the Plastic Age", "Clean Clean" and "Elstree" were released from the album, but met with considerably less success.
