The Soap Company Communique 20 - Celebrating Ari

The Soap Company Communique 20 - Celebrating Ari


About the show

Playing tracks by

The Slits, Ari Up, New Age Steppers, Mark Stewart & Ari Up .

What can we say?...We've grown up with this amazing sisters voice tickling our ears ever since we first heard her played on Peel.
We're stunned here at SoapCo HQ about today's incredibly sad news, so we decided to crack open something dubious and dig out some defining tunes featuring this multi-octaved goddess and spin a mix we hope she'd approve of.
We're not in any way into nostalgia as we think it's the route to blandness, but we can't find anything bland about this incredible array of varied and exotic sounds, same as we can't think of many artists we'd do this for.
We'd like to send out Love to her family & friends and all of the amazing musicians she worked with to make these mind bending tunes, especially Viv & Tessa, all of who must be wondering what's hit them.
So, Dedicated to someone truly original, energy in spades and a sound role model to boot, here's the SoapCo's fave tunes fronted by the lady herself.
Peace - Ariane Forster (17 January 1962 – 20 October 2010)

She certainly has.
Viv Albertine's also currently really active musically again now as well and her new stuff carries on the lineage of amazingly distinct & brilliant tracks as well if not better than the last Slits LP, every show is a celebration of that wicked sound, and that may be apt even more now.
Without these incredible women, the SoapCo would only be operating on 3/4 of our musical brain capacity I swear!
Cheers for the support Kamikaze, sad times.
