Even more Ruts news!

Looks like I was a wee bit premature in posting that piece earlier today on Ruts doings & goings-on. I somehow missed this story over at Louder Than War from a few days ago. It basically announces something I've known about for a few months now, but have kept under my hat out of respect to the band.

Basically the news is that Ruts DC are working on a second volume to their essential dub masterpiece, Rhythm Collision Vol. 1, recorded with the Mad Professor, and self-released in 1983. I've heard a couple of rough tracks, and they're well on their way to something hugely rewarding. And that ain't easy as Volume 1 is so incredible. Luckily they have Mad Professor behind the board for this one as well.

Not only are they working on the new album, they will also be joining Alabama Three for a few dates in the UK in November and December:

Nov. 17 - Manchester Ritz
Nov. 26 - Bristol Academy
Dec. 1 - Bournemouth Academy
Dec. 2 - London Kentish Town Forum

Don't forget about my interview with Dave Ruffy & Segs Jennings about the making of Rhythm Collision Vol. 1 over at Perfect Sound Forever. Thanks to Louder Than War for fighting the good fight.
