There are only two records you need to know to understand rebellion, attitude and the idea of ‚punk‘ (not that music). Now there is only one documentary on music artists you need to watch: www.slitsdoc.com Here to be Heard: The Story of The SlitsIMG_2432.JPG

Everything told in a beautiful narrative via Tessa's perspective. No famous ex-boyfriends, no "dirty knickers" (well, a few), no bullshit. Everyone talks so much in awe in respect about the band. Q&A are no questions rather full of Thank Yous to the artists for working art and feminism to this extent at a time when it was everything but to being granted for women to do stand up for their own art.
I am so proud of being a foot note on their story (yes, you'll find me in the movie).

Thanks for making this possible William Badgley, Jennifer Shagawat, Tessa Pollitt, Dennis Bovell (Artist), Paloma McLardy, Viv Albertine (I missed you last night at the BFI premiere), and of course my dear Ari, who I miss for many many years now.

Surprise, surprise, we didn't make the short list for the VIA! Awards. Oh well , being initally nominated as "Best Act" is really nice though. Congrats to those who made it. By the way, writing for the new album is going pretty good. I'll keep you updated.
