Just picked up a Slits bootleg DVD at the Austin
Record Convention called (what else?) "Wanna be a
Typical Girl". Although I don't usually go for that
sort of thing, it's of nicer quality than one would
expect, and has pretty much everything Slits on film I
had run across before (Punk Rock Movie, Girls Bite
Back, The Punk Years) along with a lot more I hadn't.
Included is the "Slits movie" which is essentially
videos for most of the songs off "Cut" shot by Don
Letts including a weird live improv Ari rap to the dub
of "Spend Spend Spend" in a packed reggae club.  Add
some early Palmolive footage and more contemporary
interviews with Viv and Ari (on the beach in Jamacia
looking very Strawberry Switchblade-esque polkadotty,
except with big-ass dreads) and it's a lot of Slits
for your buck.  Highly recommmended if it crosses your

Anyways if you need any for the program let me know,
and of course I'm not above sharing/trading with the
rest of you lovely list members.
