NPR’s The Mix Creates Playlist Honoring Ari Up

Leading up to what would have been Air Up’s 49th birthday, NPR’s The Mix have created a special playlist honoring The Slits lead singer and the female greats of post-punk. The station’s Anthony Fantano writes:

“Ari Up, leader of the pioneering post-punk band The Slits, would have turned 49 on Jan. 17. She died of cancer last October (read All Songs Considered contributor Carrie Brownstein’s remembrance here). In honor of the woman born Ariane Daniele Forster — not to mention my personal gateway drug into the world of post-punk — I’ve curated a mix of songs by other female artists inspired (both directly and indirectly) by her iconoclastic twist on punk, funk and rock ‘n’ roll.”
