William Mysterious (a.k.a. Alastair Donaldson) who played with Scottish folk band Silly Wizard before becoming the bassist (and sax player) for both The Rezillos and The Revillos has died (obituary). His role in The Rezillos and The Revillos was no mystery; he had to keep the flighty zaniness of Fay Fife and Eugene Reynolds grounded. And oh did he lash their day-glo flights-of-fancy like "(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures" right to the earth so they could bounce around in front of our ears.
This obscure 1982 single on Mysterious' own Mezzanine Records, featuring a backing assist by Fay Fife and The Revettes, is Mysterious' sole solo release.
