    Sad news, indeed. My wife e-mailed me this afternoon. Have you read “Typical Girls: The Story Of The Slits” by Zoe Street Howe? I just read it this spring. I was glad to see a book on The Slits. I appreciate their dub reggae movement but that Peel Session EP is still it for me.

    “The Cut” still breaks my heart – I first heard it while jet-lagged in London, 1979. I had no idea who / what it was. Ari Up was touring Canada during my visit there in ’05, but never our twain met. I don’t think I remember an L.A. show – certainly not at the time. Still, goodbye, Ari Up. No, I have not read any book on The Slits.

    Sad, indeed! And she was WAY too young!
