Hunx And His Punx frontman Seth Bogart announced his debut solo record last year with the Kathleen Hanna-featuring “Eating Makeup, followed that up with “Forgotten Fantazy,” and continues his streak of oddball pop with “Plastic!” “‘[The song] is essentially about losing a friend who turns into a delusional fame seeker after experiencing minimal time in the spotlight,” Bogart explained. “It’s about seeing the star potential in your friends even when they are “unknown” but them only feeling validated by public attention/fame.” He was also inspired by his “plastic obsession” with Plastic Bertrand, the Japanese band Plastics, The Plastics of Mean Girls fame, the Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” and Tracy + the Plastics.
