This January, Bassie & The Social present an intimate screening of The Slits documentary ‘Here To Be Heard‘ complete with Q&A featuring the incredible Tessa Pollitt (The Slits), followed by a roots reggae club night feat. Tessa & Soft Wax (Deptford Dub Club).
“The Slits’ story unfolds from chaotic beginnings to a celebratory reunion ending through candid insights from the band’s core. Rehearsal and live footage captures their magnetic quality, the performances intense, captivating, the group an explosion of colour, vibrancy and fun” – Lois Wilson, Mojo, June 2018
Also on sale will be Tessa Pollitt’s fantastic new scrap book documenting life in The Slits. This book stands as a testament to the emotional, personal and artistic journey of four young women struggling to be heard in a harsh and unwieldy environment. From the early days of punk to post punk and beyond, the book chronicles the journeys, joys and triumphs of first wave British punks, the first all girl punk band and the godmothers of ‘Punky Reggae’.
