Can We Have The Slits Again!
Lily and Sybil came round for tea last night and when they arrived I was playing the seminal first album by the Punk-Dub band The Slits. Realeased in 1979 on the back of the punk explosion it is a marvellous cacophony of shrieking vocals, jagged guitar and heavy basslines.
Anyway, when they arrived at Chez Marmite I turned off the cd player and turned on Boomerang on cable for Sybil to watch as she has recently become a cartoon fan. Sybil then asked me to put the music on. I then had to play the album no less than four times.
Lily is not a fan of my type of music generally and was complaining how dreadful it was. I had to laugh. Everytime the album finished Sybil said 'Can we have The Slits again?' I even gave her the option of something else but she was insistant 'No, The Slits'.
I'm extremely happy about this turn of events. Sybils tastes in music are quite varied. Up until now she has listened to R&B, which isn't a favourite of mine I can tell you. It seems I may have an Indy Kid on my hands which is fantastic. I'm trying her with The Fall and The Gang Of Four next.
