 CMT.com : Plaid : Biography
Meshing well with Downie's vision of heavily hybridized post-techno and obscurantist thematics, the pair brought several nascent Plaid tracks to the Black Dog table on the group's debut, Bytes, a collection of tracks recorded by various iterations of the three members.
The proper third album, Double Figure, followed in spring 2001, and the handy Plaid remix collection Parts in the Post was issued in 2003 by Peacefrog.
Plaid was quiet on the recording front for several years, returning finally in mid-2006 with Greedy Baby, a mini-album that found the pair co-billed with visual artist Bob Jaroc.

 bigchill.net -andy plaid music album says enough material
Plaid’s fabric was always going to be more homespun than Downie’s heretical hoodoo, but Ed and Andy decided to go public in a big way, slipping off the leash for a globetrotting tour with Icelandic dynamo chanteuse Bjork and granting their first interviews.
Curated chronologically, Trainer goes on to plot how Plaid developed into techno’s biggest teases: their trick of withholding melody until the record’s final stretch for the compulsive click of the run-out groove to steal it away too soon goosebumps you on every play.
The re-acquaintance with their back cat has reminded Plaid how much they miss the red-eyed confinement of the studio, the desperate concentration imposed by the need to beat the clock, sensing that the spacious nature of their music was never eclipsed by the urgency of it’s creation.

Before you start, it will be quite helpful to view the pictures of plaids in their finished state, so you know what your goal is. Keep in mind, that a half plaid also exists—sometimes called a "drummer's plaid," but these instructions are for the full version.

Plaid, on the other hand, continue to refine and develop their early sound.
Unlike Aphex or Ae, Plaid have never been particularly interested in texture in the micro sense; they're quite content to let their synths sound the way "futuristic" synths sounded in the late 80s and early 90s.
Plaid has always been more about the rhythmic and arrangement possibilities of digital music, which puts them closer to where the music started.

 Plaid skirts for every season from Orvis
We discovered this handsome green and natural Irish Vintage Skirt in the historical archives of a mill in Ireland; the mill agreed to recreate the vintage pattern exclusively for Orvis, in pure Irish wool.
Pair our Loden Design, of irresistibly soft cotton flannel in a plaid of loden and earth brown, with a dark green pullover or cowl neck sweater for a comfortably casual look at work or school.
This simple but elegant design stands out among our selection of plaid skirts as very chic; the soft-weave wool tartan in gray, fl, and cream is casual enough for intimate get-togethers with friends but sophisticated enough for larger, more formal events.

 village voice > music > Plaid at Warsaw; Roy Wood at Village Underground
Transfixed by their laptop screens, the presumably apple-shaped logos covered by a swath of tape, the London duo twitched nary a facial muscle during their hour-long set, focused on their respective touch-pads and the knobs on a mini-mixing console between them.
Each song had its conceptual-video counterpart, which often made the show more of a home theater than a Plaid performance, and the intensity of the images suggested a search for rational meaning—a curious complement to sounds so pleasantly devoid of it.
The encore harkened back to Plaid predecessor Black Dog and their primordial-acid days, with 303 stabs ablaze and early-rave rawness on its sleeve.
