news is back....
More Reunion Madness: The Slits Record New E..P.
Roxy Music and Eno getting back for
a record and now The
Slits, featuring the age-defying Ari Up and Tessa Pollitt,
following suit. This again isn't everyday news. The Slits' second
and last album, The Return of the Giant Slits, was recorded
in 1981, one year before Roxy Music's most recent album, 1982's
Avalon. Aparrently the record features Paul Cook of Sex
Pistols, Marco Pirroni of Adam & the Ants, and Mick Jones' daughter
Lauren Jones. Apparently Adrian Sherwood was initially slated to
sit behind the boards but they wound up with Orange Juice producer
For those of
you who haven't heard, while they haven't made it over to the states
yet, TheSlits've been playing live in the UK for the last couple
of months. Expect to see 'em stateside in the fall. You can come
out and thank them not only for helping invent your wheel, but offering
a fine soundtrack for your rebellion... both teenage and present...
