Ari Up R.I.P.

The Slits were a beautiful thing. Cut remains one of my favourite LPs from the punk era and to me was a much more interesting take on reggae than any of the other bands of the time. One of the best things to come out of that era was the acceptance of women in rock [we could argue all day but that is my opinion]. Slits were at the front of that.

I only saw them the once in 2007. They apparently had a poor reception at Golden Plains but in Brisbane on my birthday they were just fine and I couldn't have asked for a better present.

In memory then

The Slits - Live @ The Zoo - 10 March 2007
