The Slits - Animal Spacier

Always had a soft spot for The Slits, especially in the years when it sounded as if they were really using discord for deliberate artistic effect and not because it was their only option. Animal Spacier is the b-side to their 1980 single Animal Space and it's one of their best dub numbers. Really held together by the drumming, which I think is by Bruce Smith rather than Budgie; in the studio the rest of the band get to chuck every single instrument they can find into different parts of the mix. It's got that really loose feeling, the sense of freedom and possibility that their best songs give you. Just don't dance too close to them, okay? Show some fucking respect.
