The Slits - feminist icons of the punk era.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Cut (Audio CD)
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!
