As a live band The Ruts were utterly unrelenting, no matter what the tempo.
(Okay that was lip-synched but not everyone was going around recording shows on their phone back in nineteen and seventy-seven - in fact even French TV cameras didn't look or sound too good back then.)
The other half of this out-of-print CD features Pauline Murray's later-period Penetration, and includes my second favourite song of theirs, their pop-ified cover of the Buzzcocks "Nostalgia" .
This cover as well as "Don't Dicatate (and a few others spread over their two albums) seem to be Penetration's finest work. Perhaps it's the metal guitars (Fred Purses would later join Tygers of Pan Tang) or the lack of material strong enough to showcase Murray's powerful voice that make this band seem like a quickie.
