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.

Calvin Speaks The Truth

 Hard to believe that bands are still belting out boring rock. I hope Link Wray or Rosertta Tharpe or Chuck Berry visits them in the night and haunts them for the rest of their lives.
Image may contain: possible text that says 'THE PROBLEM WITH ROCK' ROLL THAT THE GENERATION THAT CREATED IT IS NOW THE ESTABLISHMENT. m ROCK PRETENDS IT'S STILL REBELLIOUS WITH ITS VIDEO POSTURING BUT WHO BELIEVES IT? THE STARS ARE 45 YEAR-OLD ZILLIONAIRES OR THEY ENDORSE SOFT DRINKS THE "REVOLUTION" IS CAPITALIST INDUSTRY! GIVE ME A BREAK! FORTUNATELY, I'VE FOUND SOME PROTEST MUSIC FOR TODAYS YOUTH! THIS STVFF REALLY OFFENDS MOM AND DAD! EASY-LISTENING MUZAK? PLAY REAL QUIET, TOO. 00 3/u'
