Biography

Plastic Dog is a mythical superhero sidekick to the famous comic book character Plastic Man. His power is to change into any form like a key to let all the other dogs out of the pound. This is the origin of the band name and also their musical philosophy.

Band members Curtis and DeCorse met while performing as arch rivals on the same club circuit in Hollywood, California. One night, at the Opium Den's Dr. Wu nightclub opening for Queens of the Stone Age in 2001, Curtis' then guitarist got a cramp in his calf and was rendered incapable of finishing the set.

Although Curtis and DeCorse had a Patty Boyd type of love triangle with now Broadway singer whose name cannot be mentioned here; DeCorse felt the pressure and put all their differences aside to complete their set that night. Plastic Dog was born.

Lyrics

Screamin'

Written By: Josh Curtis

Whenever I walk my dog in the mornin'
Which will be tomorrow mornin'
'Cuz I do so every mornin'

And when I hear someone
Screamin'
My name
I'll know it's you

Whenever I drive my car down Spaulding
What is that voice I hear calling
The sweet smell of vanilla that you're
wearing
