PUNKNET 77 - Slits


Line-up: Viv Albertine (guitar), Palmolive (drums; had played in Sid Vicious's band The Flowers of Romance), Arri (vocals) and Tessa
"The Slits played their first gig supporting the Clash at the Harlesden Coliseum in March 1977. Their set was mad, noisy, chotic and brilliant. They were inspired but totally unrehearsed. Bassist Tessa knew very few of the songs while the singer, Arri-Up, danced around screaming the lyrics like a wailing banshee. I've got to admit they scared the shit out of me", Mark P.
