Ari Up, gone at 48

I was sad to read that Ari Up, lead singer of The Slits, died late last month after a 'serious illness' at just 48 years old.

The Slits have a special place in my musical memory and were one of a few interesting bands who filled that post-punk void in late-70s London. I have a treasured signed copy of the album 'Cut' and Ari's death has prompted me to give it a well-overdue listen.
