It's not often that an artist comes along with credentials as dazzling as Vixx Viyanillas of Transmissionary Six:

Rhythm guitar for Peace Parking Lot, Love Reaction, Dogs Not Cats, Dewey Defeats Truman, and the vastly underrated Spanky & Jekyll . . . lead axe for Port-a-Pod, the Duck Maggots, and Weasel Quim . . . session work on Dylan's collaboration with Thelonious Monk, Cots for Sleeping Six Abreast, including the classic "Who Needs Porkpies? You Need Porkpies" . . . ghosted Big Bigelow's tracks on nine Nirvana albums (in other words, he was Big Bigelow!) . . . emerged as a 6-stringer in his own right with So You Think You Know Cheese—remember their 2nd CD cover? (a gouda, a brie, and 40 cubes of Laughing Cow) . . . six years of side trippin' on the coffeehouse circuit, featuring blues jams and improvs on his custom-built Rickenbacker Seven Seas aluminum hollow body.

Hailed by Guitarist Player as "One awesome s.o. fucking b.," Vixx is indeed The Man on strings.

Viva Vixx!

Transmissionary Six play Sunset Tavern at 9 p.m. Thurs., Sept. 12. $6
