Crimewave's band, Plastic Crimewave Sound, was a psychedelic acid punk band based in Chicago.

They toured with Acid Mothers Temple, Comets on Fire, Oneida, The Ponys, The Gris Gris, Marble Sheep and others, and played at the Terrastock festival and international festivals. The band has been compared to Chrome, Can, Yo Ho Wha 13, Sonic Youth, Hawkwind and has a cult following. After Plastic Crimewave Sound disbanded, Kraków formed a power trio, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate.
