"Trixz Sly (Torquill Smith 4/23/48 - 11/01/2005), met Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan from the New York Dolls while they were in London in the mid-70s. He was then introduced to the Sex Pistols by the manager of the Dolls/Pistols, Malcolm McLaren, in 1977 and moved to NY in 1978. The Nothing formed in NYC in 1978 and the lineup for their lone 45 consisted of Trixz Sly (v), Bobby B. Wild (gtr) Phil Schoenfelt (b) and Mick Crash (d). By 1980, several members had left to join other bands and The Nothing broke up. Probably due to Trixzs heavy drug use which would be the major reason why he never "made it" as a popular punk musician. Trixz later formed another band, the Cyanide Sweeties which would also dismantle due to drug use. They played the rock/punk clubs in NYC including CBGBs, and built a strong fan base playing at Maxs Kansas City. He wrote the lyrics for all of his songs and would continue to play his songs with other musicians, including The Misfits, The New York Dolls, The Sex Pistols, Billy Idol, Lou Reed and Keith Richards. Trix Sly recorded a solo album "Bossa Nova Baby" in 1980 and would continue working with experimental music and film until his death in 2005. He partnered up with Adam West (Batman) to film a documentary on Woodstock 94, but the project was never finished. At the end of his life he was an activist for the homeless in Miami and presented the "Homeless Bill of Rights" to the city of Miami Beach. He was found dead in his apartment and the cause of death was declared "natural causes." - Trixz Smith. Originally released in 1979.

Skylon: beats and electronicz. SavX: forgotten Fender. Recorded at The Garage, Highbury and Islington, London, UK, June 30, 2001. Recorded live and totally improvised." - The Tapeworm.
