Newtown ("Rough Mix")
Label: UMC (Universal Music Catalogue)
The Slits were one of the most original bands to come out of the Brit punk scene. Their combination of guitar primitivism, jungle drums and dub reggae was about the weirdest thing happening in 1979. Ari Up's vocals are always totally awesome, but on the cover of "Heard It Through the Grapevine" she really tears it up.
