Blue Eyed Dressed for Every Situation

Anyone heard of this new pharmaceutical named Yaz? Its website states that it's "the first and only birth control pill with proven efficacy for the emotional and physical symptoms of PMDD." Yeah, and it's also the name of the 1980's Vince Clarke synth-pop band fronted by Alison Moyet.

This former wearer of jean cutoffs, black tights and Doc Martens finds it a wee disturbing that the band isn't known well enough for Bayer to have thought, "Gee, maybe our birth control shouldn't be associated that new wave group, fantastic though they may be."

I mean, what's next? New Order tampons?
