Originally released in 1979, the debut from British all-girl post-punk band The Slits is available on 180 gram vinyl for the first time. Mixing a punk attitude and D.I.Y style with reggae rhythms and dub recording techniques, The Slits made some of the most avant pop of the period, which still sounds fresh and innovative today. Mixing unavoidable hooks, minimalist arrangements, and exuberant vocals with a rough, street smart style, Cut is a classic masterwork.
The full 1981 album + a bonus CD that features ALL the archived dub versions and an american radio interview of the time that was subsequently used by CBS for a ultra rare promo disc. New graphic Artwork and two of the classic photos by Anton Corbijn from the NME magazine cover session. The 1981, second, and final, Slits studio album, featuring the same line up as their first album "Cut", Ari Up, Tessa Pollit and Viv Albertine. This record has often been overshadowed by the more controversial 1979 "Cut" album. It represents their natural development as artistes by focussing more on their interests in dub and "world music" sound eclecticism (featuring Steve Beresford and ex Pop Group drummer Bruce Smith ) that is well suited to their, by then, more accomplished playing style. Perhaps, in retropsect, the Jamaican half sister to The Raincoats recordings. A "lost"gem, ripe for reappraisal, of this still vastly influential and important group in both musical and sociological terms. Produced by Dennis Bovell and Dick O'Dell (Y Records) Previously only available as an expensive Japanese import and never before released in the USA.
