Who are the British equivalent of Sly & Robbie? Our very own lovingly locked in home grown Riddim Twins? Segs and Ruffy from Ruts DC and The Ruts that's who. Their summer surprise bomb of an ultra cool hit album Ruts DC Rhythm Collision 2 is in the shops now, which is handy as we've waited a long 30 plus years since Vol 1, and boy do we need some good British reggae this season. Forget booking a cheap holiday in other people's misery coz a barbecue summer is pretty much assured with this beauty of a record. Hear true gent, sometime Dexy and joyfully garrulous raconteur that is Ruts DC drummer Ruffy chat with Wig and Tone studio side. So, witty discourse plus an exchange of cool tunes, whether they be golden nuggets or newbie contenders. Ruffy also speaks sincerely and movingly about the demise of the late great Malcolm Owen, original Ruts front man and victim of the social and personal disaster that is heroin abuse. So don't watch that watch this, only positive vibes may enter Bugbear.
