The Slits' Viv Albertine at Alexandra Palace, London 1980“People didn’t know whether to fuck us or kill us, because we looked like we’d come out of a porn magazine.”

The Slits at Electric Circus, Manchester in 1977

“The A&R men, the bouncers, the sound mixers, no one took us seriously. On top of the fact that we were all women, we had a 15-year-old singer who was absolutely nuts, running around. So, no, we got no respect anywhere we went. People just didn’t want us around.”
