Last copies of this Japanese edition, more recently reissued by Petit Blast First... Japanese-only reissue of the 2nd Slits album, originally issued by CBS in 1981. Produced by The Slits, in conjunction with Dick O'dell (Y Records) and Dennis Bovell. Lineup on this album was: Ari Up (vocals), Viv Albertine (guitar), Tessa Pollitt (bass), Bruce Smith (drums), Steve Beresford (keyboards). This was the final Slits recording, never previously reissued (nor ever issued at all in the US). "What the Slits came up with on Return of the Giant Slits is nothing short of breath taking. The songs might not have the punch of their early punk sides or the catchiness of the current pop trends circa 1981, but what they do have is a cutting edge sound and production. The songs have a meandering feel to them, but they remain centered by the incredible vocalizing of the Ari Up and her fellow Slits, the varied rhythms, and offbeat instrumentation." -- Gullbuy.
