RIP Ari Up

Postby jaimoe0 » Thu Oct 21, 2010 8:23 pm

Ari Up died October 20 after a long battle with cancer, according to the LA Times. Other publications said the illness was undisclosed, and the Times doesn't give a source. She was 48. I found the Slits music a little difficult some times. Kind of the spinach of punk rock, if you will. But I ALWAYS admired Ari's commitment to her muse and her work. She really embodied the spirit of punk to me -- and many others, I suspect.

Agreed. She was just one of those few that was brave enough to live what she preached. And from what I understand, The Slits were just as sloppy three decades afterward as they were on their first performance.
One of the best heads of hair in rock too.
