I do understand how the Slits represent so much so many people on this list
.. and deseivingly so both musically and for theiir outrageous gender
expression. ( personally think the Hags and the Mudwomen were more
But I have a memory not so nice of one night when the band Pylon .. and if
you want to look at another punk woman who refused to conform to female
woman rules including brit punk st lye fashion .. than you should become
familiar with Vanessa Pylon's lead singer . and her unique
singing/shouting/moaning/over the edge singing stlye .. HITS is a collection
of the best of Pylon .. and they have in the last year reformed and are
playing out dates in the Atlanta area .. well back to the memory .
Pylon was playing one night at Thier 3. They did their set and went to eat
and came back to pick up their equipment. On stage they had a littler B&W
old classic TV. Well as they got to the club they saw Ari sneaking off with
it. She got away before they could ask for their TV back.
I remember how bummed out Vanessa was that this could happen .
Pylon had no trust fund or upper class brats in the band .. and everything
they did was on a tight shoe string budget.
One might ask why Ari would do this .. did it go to the dope dealer .. or
perhaps she was mad collector of everything that shouted US TV classic. What
ever the reason, she did.
I might suggest there is a class aspect to this story. Rich punk kids were
always best at letttng go of material things and believing they were
entitled to anything tand take whatever they wanted .. you know .. the old
property is theift...
Now you may ask why would I tell such a story on a revered artist .. well
one would hope that a typical girl would respect the rights and property of
another typical girl .. or boy for that matter.
Note/ I was always excited to see and hear the Slits.
