yes, i suspected that was ari jokingly inventing a reason for the name...like i said the fabric of society thing was a little on the grandiose side, but that was fairly typical of the period!! i have to admit i have not followed their career between 78-06!  i loved CUT but personally fell out with them and basically was too busy with my own life to keep tabs.........old wounds heal but in the meantime a lot has transpired that i know NOTHING about!

robin, just as ari was in the interview, i was joking...hence the winking emoticon: ; ) .. listen back to the interview (which is also included in a cd version of the album) and you'll see that it was just them being impish, as was their wont.

never heard the "slashing the fabric of society" thing, though, which adds to the story.

well the last time i spoke with ari she couldn't really remember the genesis of the name! however the slogan of the time was 'slits have girls have slits" (or "girls have slits have girls") and it was nothing much to do with drums!! i DO remember it was definitely chosen for its double and shocking meaning, one being a part of the female anatomy (cue the dicks!) and the other being something to do with slashing the fabric of society or some such grandiose imagery.....

"it's got a slit in the side of it" (cue the girls making crazy jungle noises).
