DEREK LYN PLASTIC: She’s Got a U.T.I.: 7″

Finally, a musician willing to tackle everyday medical problems! Of course, there are some historical precedents (Screeching Weasel’s “Jeannie’s Got a Problem with Her Uterus” and the Quincy Punx’s “Dumpster Diving at the Abortion Clinic”), but hopefully this will spur a renaissance of medical themes. Could This Is My Fist record a song about herpes? Or maybe Teenage Bottlerocket could tackle the difficult issues posed by Type 2 Diabetes? The possibilities are endless! If this were a cereal, it’d be Honey Nut Cheerios! Sorta The Dickies mixed with Jay Reatard, but, unfortunately, this one’s a little bit more on the general rock end of things. But if you haven’t checked out Sir Plastic and you like music, you should!
