Who? Dean The Machine Foster (left, congas), Pete Van Tuff (vocals), Jeremy The Limey Parker (bass) and Matt Hutch (guitar).
WHERE? Saturday (June 23) with the Cowslingers at the El Mocambo.
SOUND? Musical comedy with balls.
key fast facts? The crowd-baiting rap-rock unit fronted by confrontational freestyler Pete Van Tuff have been antagonizing unsuspecting audiences with their politically incorrect riffing for much of the past two years, although they didn't get serious until Matt Hutch's previous outfit, Teen Crud Combo, bit the dust. According to Hutch, it all connected for Slit Slot when they decided to replace their drummer with a machine. We tried using a couple of different drummers, he confides, but we found that they're all idiots. There's something in their constant arm movements that flips on the drama queen switch in their brains. Eventually, we just bought some drum machines and everything just fell into place. Slit Slot are threatening to release their self-produced debut album by the end of July. Says Hutch, It'll have at least 15 different styles of music represented, everything from roots reggae to punk rock, some old-school hiphop and drum 'n' bass. Of course, there'll be a little spoken-word comedy thrown in, too.
IF YOURE INTO: Cheech and Chong.
