Artefact

Fanzine
The Oaks Hotel
1977
Backplate for Shy Talk 3. Collage of shots of the Slits at the Oaks. Taken by Kevin Cummins I'm pretty sure.
Manchester loved the Slits, and I have a very soft spot for them personally! I got to know them on Buzzcocks Tour Number three and they asked me to roadie for them when they supported the Clash on the "Sort it out" tour - Happy Daze!!
I was sad to learn Ari died last October aged just 48 - a true original.
