Much praise has been heaped on "Cut" already (and justifiably so) therefore I'll confine my comments to the bonus material. The remastering is superb throughout and Tessa Pollitt's basslines, in particular, are now much more prominent...even the demos & rough mixes sound fantastic and they give real insight into how the tracks evolved. It's also great to have the early Peel sessions included as this gives the listener a chance to hear the band with original drummer Paloma Romero (Palmolive). Her style is much more primitive sounding than that of her successor, Budgie.
There is a real sense of fun about this collection and if you compare the Peel material to the finished article, it shows just how proficient they became in the space of a couple of years...

Do yourself a favour and buy this!

Format: Audio CD
This album was released at about the same time as John Lydon's Public Image limited started making waves and it displays a similar late 70's reggae influence. The sound is quite singular and dates from the immediate post-punk era, but with a surprising melodic appeal. My favourite tracks include Instant Hit, New Town and Typical Girls, which should all have been hit singles as they're quite melodic and accessible. There's a dub feel throughout although to me this is more pop than anything else. Intelligent pop, that is, with strong and sometimes angry lyrics. It's a very valuable album that has proved influential down the years, in a sense, predating the rrriot girrl phenomenon by more than a decade. Punk gave us strong women like Siouxsie, Nina Hagen, Poly Styrene of X Ray Spex, and The Slits. The music has stood the test of time very well and can be enjoyed by most people into reggae, post-punk or clever pop music.

The Slits, contemporaries of The Clash and Public Image, fused reggae, dub, and punk into their own highly original sound.
"Cut", their long out-of-print debut album, paved the way for the Afro-Pop of Talking Heads, the reggae/new wave hybrids of Grace Jones and Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound System, and the trip hop of the nineties (imagine Bjork fronting Massive Attack).
Along with their pals, The Raincoats, The Slits were one of the few all-female bands to garner critical acclaim, a cult following, and avoid being marketed as sex objects by their record company.
No punk era CD collection is complete without "Cut", one of rock's lost classics. Buy it while you can!

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 July 2010
Format: Audio CD
Unless you were a member of the Bloomsbury Set or had some mystical zest, female lives generally unfurled according to a predetermined biological genetic clock pre 1970.

Wifely roles entailed house management and child production, dictated by the command culture. Mindlessly reading Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland novels, women were forced into fantasy as opposed to reality. Post puberty arrival entailed a shift from being cute icons, patted on the head to objects of sexual pawing - see the current furore. Sometimes it happened before puberty, hurriedly hushed to stem the ripples for the adults involved. The lunatic asylums were full of these forms of life committal.

This album is therefore a historical context marker, where women emerged from dolls to humans. Originally 4 women who could neither play their music or were outstandingly chiselled, bashed their instruments into cult status and changed the world. Locked within a hyper 70's kipper tied, long side burn, brass medallion, bare chested masculine world these women forged a new culture from fantasy to change the real world.

In Jubilee they climbed aboard and trashed a car, the Slits unleashed a post Saint Trinians realism.

Ari, the refusenik, eventually went to hide away from Babylon. The lyrics pointed her post 68 disgust at dropping babies on demand, her strip of Sid's tough pose to reveal the boy within, shoplifting as an act of refusal and the drabness of the promise of a better life in a newtown. The latter to be taken up as a template through addiction in the 80's. Typical Girls was an attack on the established template, the travails of relationship games encoded in a ping pong affair.

If you're reading this to try and answer the quandry: 'do I buy the Slits album 'Cut' or not? Is it worth the price?' then a quick, succinct answer would be YES. Now, i'm not usually a punk rock/reggae fan (i'm more dub/post-punk) so i was weary about the mix. One concentrated listen to this album (with the bass turned up) is all one needs to be convinced. 'Cut' is all about fun. I imagine Ari Up (vocals) bouncing, stepping, and stomping around the studio in a gleefull, giggly trance while the others bob and sway in a similar fashion. The drumming, courtesy of Mr. Siouxsie (Budgie), is light, playful and skittery while providing appropriate thump and propulsion when needed. Every track is charming, witty, naughty and innovative -the girls' personalities are at the forefront of the music as they chatter, squeal, shout, giggle, chant, bawl and, at times, coo their way through the album with effortless cool. If you can track down audio samples, listen with the volume up. Did i mention the songs were catchy? You'll be humming, drumming and singing 'So Tough', 'Ping Pong Affair' and 'Typical Girls' for weeks. Oh. . .and the cover of 'Heard it Through the Grapevine' is, quite simply, storming. Again, volume should be L-O-U-D. You won't be disappointed.
