Some bands just set themselves out from the crowd in sound and innovation instinctively, but few have pioneered a style and flavour as prominently and inspiringly as RUTS DC. Igniting and persistently pushing a dramatic fusion between punk and reggae, complete with dub bred enterprise, and lyrically addressing social issues with ravenous insight, the band has continued to excite and craft templates for fans and musicians alike.
October 6th sees the release of 2 recordings that will ignite further interestand that are sure to justify the continuing attention in Ruts DC .Both are released on the bands own SOSUMI label in conjuction with their new partner CADIZ MUSIC.
RUTS DC LIVE ON STAGE: Centred around the founding pair of John “Segs” Jennings and Dave Ruffy but enhanced by the addition of Leigh Heggarty (Guitar) and Molara (backing vocals and lead vocals on Jah War) This album captures highlights of the band’s best live performances during 2013-14. Recorded all over Europe ,it is a triumph of the band’s sound and inimitable live presence which shows why Ruts DC are still one of the most potent and inspirational bands around.
