Sly joined NO USE FOR A NAME in 1989 and appeared on all of their full-length studio albums and various EPs. The band announced last June that a new album was in the works. Other than working with NO USE FOR A NAME, he released several solo acoustic records, including a pair of releases with his friend Joey Cape of LAGWAGON. Sly and Cape also teamed up together in the side project SCORPIOS with Jon Snodgrass and Brian Wahlstrom.
