Biography

FOLLOWING ON FROM THE RUTS
Ruts DC was the follow up name used by the surviving three members of The Ruts following the death of singer Malcolm Owen in 1980. They released two albums: Animal Now (a rock record on Virgin in 1981), and Rhythm Collision (a dub reggae record on their own imprint, Bohemian, in 1982, engineered by Mad Professor).
The band came to a halt in 1984 only once reforming to perform one now legendary gig at The Academy Islington on July 16th 2007.The band was fronted on this occasion by Henry Rollins but, sadly, was to be guitarist Paul Fox’s last ever gig as he was suffering from cancer.
PRESENT DAY
Animal Now is soon to be released for the first time on CD through WestWorld/Plastichead. 25 june 2012 .
Ruts DC have also recorded a long awaited Rhythm Collision volume 2. Recorded once again at Mad Professor’s Ariwa Studios, the album features the original Rhythm section of Ruffy and Segs plus various vocal collaborations including Tenor Fly, Ainzli Jones and Molara.
Ruts DC currently are gigging in Uk and Europe.
A 5 track sampler (on their own SOSUMI RECORDINGS ) is available from theruts.co.uk while the full album is planned for release later this year.
