Limited digipak release containing classic Peel Sessions recorded by the all girl Post Punk outfit led by Ari Up. The Slits' BBC sessions have long been celebrated as favorites of John Peel's, and it is easy to hear why. In fact, the band's debut session was always hailed by Peel as "one of our first classic sessions". These first two sessions explode with vibrant Punk energy, aggression and wit. The third session, recorded just months before the band split, also pulsates with color and life, but points clearly to the direction in which they were heading and the areas they were exploring - Dub, Funk, free improvisation, African music and Hip Hop. This compilation includes all three sessions, plus one previously unreleased bonus track, recorded by the band on a reunion tour in 2006.
