Margaret "Maggie" Swaton (née Smyk) (born January 18th, 1951) is a friend and former collaborator of The Residents, best known for her portrayal of nightclub singer Peggy Honeydew in the unfinished feature film Vileness Fats.

History

Margaret Smyk was born in South San Francisco on January 18th 1951.

In 1969 she became friends with the group who would later become known as The Residents. During a trip to Europe around this time, Smyk she met Philip Lithman, who she would introduce to the fledgling Residents in 1970 when Lithman moved to America. Lithman would later become known as Snakefinger, and continued to collaborate with the group until his untimely death in 1987.

She is perhaps best known for her portrayal of sultry nightclub singer Peggy Honeydew from 1971 (appearing on "D For Doorknob" at the group's live performances and on their demo tape B.S.) until 1976 (the conclusion of the filming of the ill-fated film project Vileness Fats).

She currently lives in Gilroy, California.
