The Slits - Typical Girls

This is them live in the early eighties in San Francisco and, of all places, Cincinnati (reprazent!). About 90% of this is fantastic, especially their cover of "Heard It Through The Grapevine" which you may listen to below.

The other 10% is, I think, Neneh Cherry doing guest vocals and sounding like a kitten with its paw in a meat grinder.

But what are you going to do?

I was lucky to see them a couple of years ago and the show was fantastic. After one song, Ari Up said, "That one was tight. Like my boom boom!" And then she patted her boom boom.

Oh Ari! You silly!

Here's the track list:
1. New Town
2. Walkabout
3. Man Next Door
4. Life On Earth
5. Heard It Through The Grapevine
6. Typical Girls
7. Fade Away
8. In The Beginning
9. Or What Was It
