Nitecaps PhotoAfter leaving Richard Hell's Voidoids, bassist Jahn "X-sessive" Xavier switched to guitar and formed an interracial quartet called the Nitecaps with ex-New York Dolls roadie/bassist Peter Jordan, guitarist Al Maddy, and drummer Sammy K. Brown. Their only album, 1982's Clive Langer/Alan Winstanley-produced Go to the Line, infused horn-driven R&B with punk/new wave energy, and featured a guest appearance by the Uptown Horns. Maddy later joined The Dots. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
