Jamaican group formed by Derrick Crooks, a one-time member of [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Pioneers,+The]The Pioneers[/url]. Although well known for the song [i]Johnny Too Bad[/i], which featured in the [a=Jimmy Cliff] movie [i]The Harder They Come[/i], the history of the Slickers is obscure. The first release by the Slickers, [i]Nana[/i], may not even be the same Slickers, but rather the Pioneers recording as Johnny Melody & The Slickers. Even the writers and performers on [i]Johnny Too Bad[/i] aren't entirely known, with some sources crediting [a=Delroy Wilson] and others crediting his brother Trevor, and some sources crediting Roy rather than Hylton Beckford.
