Tens of people have asked me the question, “Where did the name ‘smacksy’ come from?”
The answer is one of the following. I will let you decide:
Smacksy was the name of the new wave band that I fronted in 1986. On the basis of our one hit "The Heartbreak," we toured opening for Human League and Haircut 100. We lost our street cred when we were dropped from the MTV rotation and picked up by VH-1, resulting in an ill fated North American tour with Nu Shooz and Falco. We broke up in 1989, after our bass player Jax was mildly injured in a pyrotechnics incident at a gig we played at the opening of a 24 Hour Fitness in Carlsbad.
At our house we are really into snacks. Sometimes we call snacks, smacks. When one is hungry it can be referred to as snacksy or smacksy. The domain name Snacksy.com was already taken.
