Cut by The Slits introduced an atypical group at the vanguard of female-fronted punk, influencing on everyone from Massive Attack to Sleater-Kinney. Sassy and streetwise: The Slits were everything girls in a band weren’t supposed to be before punk levelled the playing field, and their debut album, Cut, continues to astound. Admittedly, the feisty London-based quartet were well-placed to surf punk’s first wave. Dreadlocked, live-wire vocalist Arianna Forster (aka Ari Up) was the daughter of Nora Forster, future wife of Sex Pistols’ vocalist Johnny Rotten, while guitarist Viv Albertine dated The Clash’s Mick Jones and hung out with Sid Vicious. The Slits, though, were no one’s appendages and were determined to make a mark on their own terms.
Believe it or not the three topless women on the cover art are the same women who created the groundbreaking punk/reggae album Cut. Known for their interesting rhythmic style and fusion of classic-punk, dub, ska, and reggae the Slits were one of the most unique female trios to come out of the late 70's punk explosion. Landmark records such as London Calling, Entertainment, and Unkown Pleasures were released in 1979, Cut ranks up there with every single one of them. Musically Cut blends soothing reggae beats with bouncy guitar lines and angst-ridden vocals
The Slits could hardly play an instrument among them at first - when they opened on the Clash's White Riot Tour, Mick Jones tuned their guitars for them - but they went on to become one of the most influential early female punk bands.
the Slits, the art-guitar revelations of Television and Sonic Youth and the 21st-century dervish-noise assault of White Lung. But they’re both great, and they’re both here. Dead Kennedys' debut LP is the ultimate hardcore comedy album, with singer Jello Biafra playing Johnny Rotten as goofball satirist on songs like "California Über Alles" and "Holiday in Cambodia.
