Jungle

The first time on vinyl for the complete 15-track album. Limited edition in blue vinyl for RSD 2024. Three exclusive songs. Guest vocals by Nina Hagen and Neneh Cherry. Notes by Mick Mercer. Gatefold sleeve with unseen photos. From punk to dub eras. The Slits were known for their uncompromising artude and confrontaYonal music, first seen on their 1977 tour with The Clash. To this day they are cited as being hugely inspiring to many female artists. But even their seminal Island Records 1979 debut album ‘Cut’, with its infamous sleeve of the band members naked and caked in mud, does not capture the true energy and spontaneity as well as these live recordings do. The album spans from an early, chaoYc punk-era show which includes classics such as Shopli~ing, Newtown and Love & Romance. It shows how they evolved into their dubby, reggae-influenced style with songs such as Typical Girls, and finishes with a track from their last ever performance in 1981. Over its fi~een tracks it features three songs never otherwise recorded*, and guest vocals from Nina Hagen and Neneh Cherry. The gatefold sleeve includes updated notes from Mick Mercer and previously unseen live and at home photos.
