The John Robb Tapes | Ari Up (The Slits)

'The John Robb Tapes' is a new series which unearths the incredible archive of old interviews that music journalist John Robb has amassed over the years. Episode 7 is an interview with Ari Up. A formidable force of nature, Ari Up was the charismatic front woman of The Slits. The band appeared in the middle of the punk rock revolution, combining punk and reggae into a powerful potent brew. In this interview, Ari Up talks about those days... the early gigs, the recording of 'Cut' and the meaning behind the lyrics of classic songs such as 'Typical Girls'.
