The Slits - I Heard IT Through The Grapevine

Taken from the Slits often overlooked 'Cut' this cover version is one of those songs that I first heard and went 'where have you been all my life?'. The Slits fusion of punk and reggae asthetics with Ari Up's amazing vocal gymnastics really bring this song to life in a way the original could never imagine.

I was originally turned onto this by Tony Morley one night at the Autechre curated All Tomorrows Parties a few years ago.
