Revenge of the Killer Slits
Label: Only Lovers Left Alive
New music from the Slits? Revenge of the Killer Slits is either an unabashed grab for cash (prompted by grave diggers like Glass Candy and 10 zillion other "new no wave" bands) or a final word on the way avant-garde reggae punk is supposed to sound from the very N.Y.C. weirdoes who invented it. Either way, singer Ari Up sounds as alternately scary and ultra cool as ever, and the ESG influence is easier to identify, which means there's more music that is fun to do the zombie dance to.
