The Prefects/The Slits at The Vortex-1977 21 August 10

 

Martin Millar  recalls the Prefects and The Slits at the Vortex in London, 1977, for his blog:

"The Prefects were a strange band, shambolic even by the standards of the time. I remember them quite fondly, before they disappeared without trace."

Good read, and an insight into the obvious empathy between the two ( rather different) acts. 


The Prefects live at the Co-Op Suite Birmingham 1978 CD is available in very ltd numbers from CTR as the distributor returned a dozen copies recently.
