Shocked and saddened to see this. Unfortunately, even though I'd done some promo for her, I never got to meet her. she was always a bright spot on the phone and full of energy and passion.

"ARI UP DIES
Ari Up, frontwoman with seminal punk band The Slits, has died aged 48.

Up, real name Ariane Forster, formed The Slits in 1976 aged just 14. An all-girl group, they were a breath of fresh air in the male-dominated punk scene, and quickly built up a reputation for their unpredictable and, at the time, outrageous live shows. Two albums followed, 1979's 'Cut', complete with topless cover shot, and the 1981 follow-up 'Return Of The Giant Slits'.

The band split in 1981, and Forster, her husband and children spent some time living in Indonesia and Belize among the indigenous communities in those regions. She continued to make music, though. Both as part of the New Age Steppers and as a solo artist under various monikers, though it was as the former frontwoman of The Slits that she remained most famous. She reformed the band in 2005 with a new album, 'Trapped Animal', following last year.

Up's death was confirmed yesterday by another punk legend, John Lydon, who is married to Forster's mother. A short message on Lydon's website reads: "John and Nora have asked us to let everyone know that Nora's daughter Arianna (aka Ari-Up) died today (Wednesday, 20 Oct) after a serious illness. She will be sadly missed. Everyone at JohnLydon.com and PiLofficial.Com would like to pass on their heartfelt condolences to John, Nora and family. Rest in peace".

"femininity given free reign in music can give birth to a different kind of music"
