Along with support singers the Rootettes, Root Boy Slim (aka Foster MacKenzie III) was both a tongue-in-cheek parody of the generally unkempt punk rock scene and the leader of a fairly well-received and established blues bar combo. Records were not exactly sure how to market Root Boy Slim & the Sex Change Band in 1978. Were they comedy, blues, or punk? They found remarkable success throughout Europe and issued several more albums before Foster MacKenzie III passed on June 8, 1993, at the age of 48. ~

He got turned onto Root Boy Slim & the Sex Change Band at Roanoke College. I had a roommate from the . area, Nylander explained. He can’t precisely recall the month and year, but at some point in the 1979-80 time range, Root Boy and the band played The Coffee Pot on Brambleton Avenue. The band didn’t normally travel with its female backup singers, The Rootettes. So that night, Nylander got drafted as a temporary stand-in Rootette, singing background vocals on tunes such as Dozin’ and Droolin, I’m Not Too Old For You, and Boogie ’Til You Puke. As Nylander recalls it, Root Boy sang the latter number to close out a set, and during the song he faux-collapsed on the stage. That was part of the band’s act - then someone would step in and seemingly revive the burly singer with cocaine. Off stage, it had an element of reality, Nylander said.
Somewhere in the course of his development he took the stage name Root Boy Slim, formed the Sex Change Band, and reigned as a bizarre and increasingly unpredictable Washington-area musical hero from the late ’70s into the ’80s. Song titles like I’m Not Too Old for You, Dare to be Fat, and Hicktown Pizza Hut Woman made it easy to write Slim off as a novelty act, said Dick Bangham, who created album covers and swag for Slim before joining his band as a backup singer. But he wrote intense, funny songs and sang them with conviction. Another possible explanation is that his first record for Warner Bros. Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band with the Rootettes, simply didn’t sell very well. Whatever the reason, Warner Bros. Schizophrenia and drug problems contributed to Slim’s subsequent professional decline.
