More Ari Up
The tributes to punk legend Ari Up of the Slits keep coming.
Ari, who died last week at the tragically young age of 49, is eulogised by none other than DJ Twitch of Optimo over at the Dummy magazine website, including the story of the first time he met her.
Melody Maker/Plan B editor Everett True has also posted his own tribute at Collapse Board. It includes extracts from some interviews he did with Ari, some videos, and best of all a link to download the "official" Slits bootleg record from 1980, jointly released by Rough Trade and Y Records.
