Somethin’ from The Nothing from Nothin’

Trixz Sly (Torquill Smith) met Johnny Thunders & Jerry Nolan of The New York Dolls while they were in London in the mid-70s. He moved to New York City in 1978 where he formed The Nothing. The following year they recorded their lone 45.

By 1980, several members had left to join other bands & The Nothing broke up. Trixz later formed another band, the Cyanide Sweeties (along with Nothing bandmate Mickey Crash & Reactors guitarist Professor Ginz). They played the rock/punk clubs in NYC including CBGBs, & built a solid fan following at Max's Kansas City. Trixz played with many musicians, including The Misfits, The New York Dolls, The Sex Pistols, Billy Idol, Lou Reed, & Keith Richards.

Trixz recorded a solo 45 "Bossa Nova Baby" in 1980. He continued working with experimental music & 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. He presented the "Homeless Bill of Rights" to the city of Miami Beach. He was found dead in his apartment. The cause of death was declared as "natural causes."

The Nothing is: Trixz Sly - vocals; Bobby B. Wild - guitar; Phil Schoenfelt - bass; & Mickey Crash - drums.

You Urban Achievers are not Gonna Believe It

Last weekend while I was crate digging at a local thrift shop here in Sactown, I came across one of my all-time holy grail albums (as you can see from one of their show flyers, they believe in me). There are rumors galore as to whether or not any more copies of this album are extant. It was believed that the NA (Nihilist Against) had successfully destroyed all existing versions of this great 1978 German techno-pop one-off nugget Nagelbett by Autobahn.

German techno-pop pioneers Autobahn released only one album entitled Nagelbett in the late 70s. They are perhaps the best example of a band being "ahead of its time". Though they are now recognized as great innovators in the world of techno, their album was almost universally disparaged by both critics & audiences alike. Utterly demoralized, the band dissolved. All of its members fell on hard times with band leader Uli Kunkel even resorting to the adult film industry (as Karl Hungus) before disappearing from the public eye completely, without even an ethos.

Autobahn members: Uli Kunkel, Kieffer Funkel, & Franz Unkel

Autobahn - Nagelbett, Neoc International NIHIL 666, 1978.

Here’s Johnny!!! (& June & J-Bob & Jane)

I started attacking the alphabet back in August 2015 when I realized it would be a good way to fix up inadequate musick I had serving their stretch in a HELL called "Musick that NEEDS Work" It A-ll began with American Taboo & Art Phag. By July of the following year I was up to the Mighty H post. By January 2017 I had got no further than Ikara Colt. Since then, zilch...

A lotta shit happened since then, as shit has a tendency to do. I burned down my storage drive & actually no longer have the folder "Musick that NEEDS Work" (although there is always much repair still to be done).

But the idea sprang up again as I was piecing this brute from Nashville together & I decided to give it another go..

June of 44 was an American rock band which was formed in 1994 from ex-members of Rodan, Lungfish, Rex, & Hoover. The band's name refers to the period during which writers Henry Miller & Anaïs Nin corresponded. Their song relate directly or indirectly to Miller.

In the Fishtank is an ongoing project of Konkurrent, an independent music distributor in the Netherlands. In this project, Konkurrent invites one or two bands to record & gives them two days studio time. The first four albums were recorded by individual bands, but eight of the last ten releases were the result of two bands (three in one case) teaming up to record. The Ex is so far the only band to appear on more than one album in the series.

The following is a list of all the In the Fishtank releases:
    In the Fishtank 1 – Nomeansno
    In the Fishtank 2 – Guv'ner

Captain's Order

Fellow Blogger, loyal supporter & guest poster of NSS, & brother in Dub Jonder always stimulates my earholes & gets me digging for goodies long lost in the mess of my grey matter. His recent posts about the legendary S.F. label Subterranean Records had me searching through my Beefheart.  Beefheart, you ask?

Well, on Subterranean SUB 15 (1981) Various Artists - Red Spot there are three songs from Jed Speare & Easy Teeth: "Rotator Cuff"; "Twinkies"; & "Gondola Serenade".

Jed Speare (1954-2016) was a crossover artist who worked in sound, video, & performance for forty years. In the early 80s he recorded with Easy Teeth as well as the San Francisco groups Research Library (the previously mentioned Red Spot comp), Ultrasheen (City Boy 7" EP; Subterranean SUB 12), & Appliances.

Easy Teeth's 7" 45rpm was a one-off collaboration between Magic Band drummer Robert Williams, Magic Band roadie Paul Young, & vocalist Tito Larriva. 'Eazy Teeth' was a nickname given to Paul Young by Don because he was always smiling. The EasyTeeth single artwork features a Van Vliet 1980 original EAZY TEETH drawing (black felt tip on white).
