Profile
Jeff Plewman (1948-2014), better known as Nash the Slash, was an eccentric and innovative Canadian musician who first came to widespread attention as a member of the band FM. He later pursued a solo career and released material on his own Cut-Throat label. His trademark look, tuxedo, tophat, and bandages, made him instantly recognizable, but his steadfast adherence to originality and musical talent made him more than a novelty act.
