If The Ruts aren't worth a comment, then what the HELL is?
Speaking of that crucial comments section, that is where you'll find the Rules link.
Support the band!
Many thanks indeed, Jeffen, for this - I hadn't got the Ruts DC Peel session, so much appreciated! For your information, the CD doesn't include all of the Ruts' Peel sessions - those liking the Ruts' reggae grooves will want to get ska grandfather Laurel Aitken's Peel session, recorded with the Ruts as his backing band on 28th April 1980, two months after the Ruts' last Peel session (11/02/1980), and three months before Malcolm Owen's tragic death. Go get it here, thanks to the great mondo-de-muebles:
NB: the link is still valid despite the re-up request. Search the site and also http://skamanchackett.blogspot.com for much more Ruts. The fantastic kingrockerrockson blog has closed, but Marky's links are still alive - here's a rare one:
Ruts - Burning With Anxiety 79-80
Chorus TV, Paris, France. 13-01-80
03.You're Just A...
