RUTS DC
« on: March 02, 2009, 10:58:03 PM »
AS POSTED ELSEWHERE......
.......according to Dave Ruffy he and Seggs are back in the studio with the Mad Professor and Britains reggae maestro Dennis Bovell recording 'Rhythm Collision Vol.2', Vol.1 having been released back in 1982.
 But will it be going out as Ruts DC or Ruts V.03 or what...

And whilst we're on the subject of The Ruts/DC.

I've only just become aware of the 1980 album that Paul Fox, Dave Ruffy and Seggs Jennings did as the backing band to Kevin Coyne! Some 'life long fan' I am to have missed a WHOLE album of thier music. Doh! It is now in my possession.

And I've just managed to download the 1980 John Peel session The Ruts (including Malcolm) did as the backing band for ska legend Laurel Aitken. They also released a single with him under the name 'The Unitone'.

Sorry to go on but I know I'm not the only old Ruts fan here by far. ;D

Oh yes? Where? What? When?

Here's the link to the 4 tracks on the John Peel Session. Otherwise currently unavailable.
http://theperfumedgarden.blogspot.com/2009/03/laurel-aitken-12th-may-1980.html

Here's a link to the 'Sanity Stomp' LP with Kevin Coyne. The album doesn't seem to have been rereleased on CD so otherwise unavailable. The Ruts are on side one and the other side has people like Robert Wyatt on it.
http://kevincoyne.blogspot.com/

The single (Rudi Got Married/Honey Come Back To Me) they recorded is available to BUY on the CD 'Laurel Aitken - Rudi Got Married' and I got a copy easily off Amazon so buy it.
 (And I've just found out that a second, even rarer single ('Big Fat Man/It's Too Late) was also recorded with an uncredited Ruts and that's luckily on the same CD.)

 Also, for real fans of Paul Fox guitar, don't forget to check out his reggae work with Dubcats. There's a limited edition posthumous 'Foxy In Dub' CD available through the band's and Foxy's own MySpace pages for a couple of quid. It's excellent.
 The tracks on that CD are DUB versions of the tracks on the forthcoming Dubcats album which is being mixed at Bunny Lee Studios in Jamaica with guest spots from Max Romeo, U Roy and others.

 Right, now I'm off to track down all the reggae recordings Dave and Seggs released as Small Axe in the '90's.

Yes. I am an obsessive. ;D

Thread necromancy in order as...

There is a new remix of 'Rhythm Collision Vol. 1' (that'll be the 3rd version then). ;D

I'm afraid there's no new information on a previously mentioned Volume 2.

I hate Kentish Town Forum as a venue but needs must.

What will they sound like live? Like a reggae dub band. What else would they sound like. ;D

I was chatting to Chris Payne (bass player of The Members) who ran into a friend of his who confirmed he's been asked to play guitar for Ruts DC on the proposed dates.

And the name of Chris's friend? None other than...

Leigh Heggarty. ;D
