R.I.P. Astrid Kirchherr

Astrid's influence on the Beatles was huge. She dated Stuart Sutcliffe at the end of his too short life. She gave the Beatles their iconic look and took brialliant photos of the band  while they were there honing their skills in the early days. If you have not read about the Beatles history in Germany you should check it out. It is a miracle they lived....

An early TMBG advert. These guys were massively prolific song writers. Before the internets I used to call their dial a song every week.

The Slits Here To be Heard The Story Of The Slits

I honestly don't like much punk even though I grew up with it. There are exceptions like The Slits. One of my faves for years. The documentary is really good showing lots of early footage when they were just untalented raw energy but of course they grew quickly.

 Instant Hit

I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Their last album Return Of The Giant Slits I am totally unfamiliar with but Earthbeat seems very interesting.
