Back in the 1970s, when disco was hot, I went to see a guy called Buster Cherry Jones playing at the Peppermint Lounge in NYC a few times. I
have never seen anyone slap like him again. He had the slap as well as
the soul. I heard later that he was a drug addict, and may have died.
Not sure about that.
Bustah Jones plays on Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain and/or Warm Jets I
believe, but is not distinctive. He reappears (again, IMS) on My Life in
the Bush of Ghosts, and was also the main bassist for the Heads in the
Stop Making Sense era.
He had a solo lp, with a nice single off it. Interestingly, I have never heard any assiduous slapping in his playing in these recordings, more of
a finger funker.
I believe he did indeed enter the stereo cabinet a while ago, but if
anyone has more details on Bustah, post them.
Too bad you have no tapes from the Pep lounge shows ;)
