help with slime, load-system not defined

I'm trying to setup slime on a laptop. 
I've followed the instructions on <> 
except that I didn't re-install sbcl (perhaps I should?) 

I can start slime and get the CL-USER prompt. 
But then when I try to use ,load-system there is no such command "load-system" 

Any idea what's missing? 

Here is my .sbclrc

(load "~/sw/quicklisp.lisp")
(load "~/quicklisp/setup.lisp")
(ql:quickload "quicklisp-slime-helper")
(require :asdf)

(setf asdf:*central-registry*
   ;; Default directories, usually just the ``current directory''


Here is my .emacs

(put 'downcase-region 'disabled nil)
(put 'narrow-to-region 'disabled nil)

(load (expand-file-name "~/quicklisp/slime-helper.el"))
(setq inferior-lisp-program "/usr/local/bin/sbcl")
(setq slime-contribs '(slime-fancy))

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/sw/slime")
(require 'slime-autoloads)
