"I've had enough of politicians telling me what to do": Ruts DC are back
John ‘Segs’ Jennings on from UK punk stalwarts Ruts DC on politics in music, nostalgia and Henry Rollins
The new album is called Music Must Destroy. But why must it? Isn’t music supposed to be entertainment?
You’re right. But I’ve had enough of governments telling us what to do. They don’t act on our behalf.
Does politicism in music really change anything?
It has more to do with building awareness, I think. At sixty years of age, I try not to write anything too questioning or negative without some kind of answer.
Ruts DC play London Camden Underworld on September 16.
