Ari Up Dies At Age 48

Ari Up, lead vocalist of the late 70s/early 80s British girl punk group The Slits, has died of cancer at the age of 48. Here's the Slits' classic 1979 Marvin Gaye cover. It's Saturday, you're at home, play it loud. I bought this single the same day I bought the first B-52s album and playing them both nonstop for the next month, I thought I'd left disco behind me forever.
