I grew up listening to these untypical girls and it’s always great to stumble upon news and interviews with these figures of punk rock’s past:
An interview with the drummer of THE SLITS turned up a few days ago, do go to the link for more, but before that do give this a thought:
“With punk rock, the initial thing was we don’t like the society we’re living in. We reject consumerism. We reject having to be nice like what the hippies were doing. We reject the parents of the hippies, we reject the hippies! We reject everyone! We reject working from 8-5…. Now I’m working from 8-8, but anyway. You see what I’m saying, we rejected how the society was run. We don’t think you’re doing a good job so we’re going to rebel against it and we don’t have any solution but we don’t really care whether we have a solution or not!” – Paloma AKA Palmolive, 2014
