Nash The Slash
I don't think this chap has a thread, so here it goes (sorry if i posted it in the wrong place):
A while ago, as I was digging through my father's vinyl record collection, I stumbled upon a curious looking record:
Children Of The Night, was it's name.
I immediatly felt I had to listen to this, and so I asked good ol' Dad who the heck Nash The Slash was.
His answer: "You've never heard about him? Well, I once went to a concert back in the 80's, and he was the opening act. I thought he was so good I had to rush out and buy the album. You've got to listen to this..."
So he put it on, and I must say I enjoyed it. I was quite perplexed after I read the album sleeve that stated there were no guitars in the making of the album.
Apparently, he's known for playing electric viola and mandolin.
Not only that, he performs wrapped up in bandages like a mummy, and wearing a tuxedo and sunglasses. People didn't know who he was in the beginning, it seems. Interesting, isn't it? I thought so too, have a look his jolly old self:
Here are two tracks from that same album I mentioned, I hope you enjoy them:
The first one is the album's opening track, I was quite aprehensive towards that playful sounding beat behind all the distortion, but I've grown to enjoy it.
Whores will have their trinkets...

A while back, he did a comic/CD combo with SF/weird music comic artist Matt Howarth called The Simultaneous Man.
Go to bugtownmall.com and click on New Stuff (it's not new), then search for the title. As a mostly-lurker, I can't post links, sorry.
Anyone interested in this forum will probably be interested in a lot of Howarth's other works. I wish his website was better organized, but the comics are really fun. In particular, the Henry Savage series had a real-life weird music guest star every issue, from Kluster's Conrad Schnitzler (a regular) to the Residents, Wire, and Yello's Dieter Meier. And Hawkwind, for some reason.
