NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #56 ~ 02-07-15]

SLITS copy

Being involved in music is a great outlet for Ari – I can’t imagine her finding a place in society otherwise. She’s lucky her family has money; plenty of people with her extreme character traits but no money must end up in some sort of institution because their parents can’t cope. The combination of money and a bohemian mother who moves in artistic and musical circles means that people are more accepting of Ari’s behaviour. I think a lot of Ari’s attitude is a rebellion against her mother’s cool, blonde beauty. She knows she can’t compete with that, so she goes to the opposite extreme.

Difficult as she is, and different as the band are as people, there are core beliefs that we all share and I’m amazed and excited that we’ve found each other. One of the many things we all agree on is, we hate double standards and false people and all of us are very vocal in our damnation of any hapless person who crosses our path who hasn’t thought rigorously about life.

When we were on a TV show in Holland, Mike Oldfield’s sister, Sally, was on the same bill. She had a single out at the time (‘Mirrors’). Sally was dressed in a peasant gypsy-type dress and warbling away in a breathy little-girl voice. We went up to her afterwards and told her she was shit, that she was compounding stereotypes and doing a disservice to girls, that she should take a good look at what she was doing and how she was projecting herself and be honest about who she was. She burst into tears. We do that sort of thing all the time.
