Ruts DC - Live 1981: Edingburgh Nite Club

Another classic from Philippe, this time a live bootleg from "Ruts DC", with 9 tracks coming from their debut album "Animal Down" some original "Ruts" songs, unfortunately a couple of them have been clipped in the recording but apart from that a pretty good recording.

I always had a soft spot for the Ruts and used to know Malcolm (well everyone who went to the Nashville did) and after the sad loss "Ruts DC" kept going and turned out some decent stuff.

Still struggling for time, so I'll leave it you you to check them out, and leave a comment to say what you think (and as usual leave a thanks to Phillipe for sharing this gem).

Philippe ripped these at 320, so it comes in two parts. Enjoy.

If you like Ruts DC, I'm afraid their debut album is no longer commercially available but you can find a copy at the always excellent Mondo De Muebles here, and you can get some more odds and sods over at the always great Nuzz Prowling Wolf here.

and while your checking them out, why don't you treat yourself to some classic "Ruts" for only£3.99 here:
The Crack/Grin and Bear It
and all their singles for only £4.98, bargin:
