The Slits bring their unique brand of punk/ethno/reggae boundary teasing, pigeonhole evading, rawk to the star and shadow, saturday 8th May.

Hear snippets of Cut, the band's massively influential, seminal, landmark etc. album wherein they wed grrl pnk attitude, razor blade wit, slash-punk chords and wonderfully counter intuitive, off-kilter vocal harmony to dub, dance reggae and drum beats pilfered from south of the equator. Also hear Trapped Animal, the band's first record in 25 years, which revamped and reinstated their approach to rock music on its release october 2009.

BBC Cuts Billboards Are Going Up

The campaign to save BBC 6 Music continues apace. The BBC were hoping it'd go quiet , but the campaign continues. I contributed to the billboards campaign, but more money means more boards. You can contribute here.

I saw David Cameron's disgraceful comments that the decision to close the station should be left to the BBC. In other words let it die. No doubt that instruction came from the Beeb bashing Murdoch empire.

Over 36000 have signed this petition. If you haven't already please do.

If you've not listened to BBC 6 Music, it's head and shoulders the best radio station in the UK, and probably the world.

Recently discovered has been a long lost video of The Wasps performing Run Run Angelica and it's now up on You Tube. Certainly I'd never seen it before and it's great that people are sharing these gems. Whenever something like this appears I always wonder what else is out there that's yet to appear.
