Ruts DC: Reissues

Album Review

London punks’ reggae-inspired second incarnation revisited.

The Ruts are probably best known for their hit Babylon’s Burning and for the sad, early death of their original singer Malcolm Owen in 1980. While they never regained chart success, the rest of the group showed themselves to be among the most adept exponents of punk’s affiliation with reggae.
