The Slits supported Sonic Youth on at least one of their recent tours, unfortunately that was America and not Britain so I missed it.

I have only heard Cut, but it's da bomb. Is their anything else even worth hearng though?

Their version of Heard It Through the Grapevine has to be one of my fave covers. They're a very catchy band.

i fookin love the Slits, end of story!
that Peel session is amazing, i heard about it for ages but the energy of it just makes up for the fact that they can't really play properly...
to that end what proportion of the amazing 'Cut' was actually written by the Slits themselves? I hear they had alot of help from their producer, not sure if this is true or not...

Regardless, the chaotic, tribal dub-punk beauty of the album just grabs me everytime... and the lyrics are great. and Ari Up is John Lydon's stepdaughter! Xmas at the Lydon household must be an experience...

what's the consensus on the new stuff...? they should stick to playing the old stuff i think

that's the one... though they were more of a punk band in spirit than sound methinks

I think they're pretty good, i mean i don't own any albums but i've heard a couple of songs and seen them in the punk rock movie.

they 'reformed' to tour over the last couple of years, Ari Up and Tessa Pollitt on bass are the only original members remaining.
