Never miss another 'Viv Albertine (The Slits)' show
Main songwriter & guitarist of the Slits; Viv Albertine has persevered with her individual take on life & unusual guitar style. After a long break, Viv returned with a renewed passion and released her 1st E.P 'Flesh' on Thurston Moore's 'Ecstatic Peace' label. Then poured a collection of powerful, provocative & personal songs which became the new album: The Vermilion Border. She is back; telling it like it is through her songs, art & forthcoming book.
Viv has a fluid line-up & also plays solo.
Viv Albertine (The Slits) tour dates
As vital to European culture as The Velvet Underground were to the USA, Stereolab ploughed a twenty year course cruising the Krautrock underground whilst successfully surfing the Britpop overground with a series of perfectly misplaced melodica. Following their self-imposed hiatus in 2009, French born lead Laetitia Sadier has positioned herself as the chanteuse of the Avant-garde, initially with solo project/band Monade, followed by two albums of various musical sparks; 2010's 'The Trip', and 2012's 'Silencio'.
Whilst less experimental than her previous musical charges, both albums were, in some respects, reminiscent of Stereolab's craft of bringing uncommercial and commercial threads together; in others, an illustration of an artist liberated from the creative tensions of this successful union.
