Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

I’m on a Collision Course with Rhythm

Lately I’ve been stuck in a Rut.

Ruts DC kind. Rhythm Collision, Rhythm Collision Remix, Rhythm Collision Re>Loaded.

Some of it is still available, some of it has been re-released, much of it is around if you want to search. I just thought I throw together some of the various versions, see how it worked out…

  3. Hi NØ, really looking forward to hearing this! Meanwhile, for all your Ruts DC needs, check out this blog run by a UK-based mate of mine who's well in with the band and has some stunning recordings of their recent live gigs, the latest of which showcases new material from their forthcoming album: http://auralsculptors.blogspot.com/search/label/Ruts%20DC

    Cheers, Dave Sez.

    1. Dave Sez...I'm honored, sir. I know of you & respect your musickal tastes from around the blogsphere. Thanks for the link. Am heading over to check it out right now. Hope you enjoy the above offering.

    2. Nothin' Sez...thank you so much for the link. Sonic Ballroom. Awesome! What a setlist. I left a thanks over at Aural Sculptors.

  4. Hi again NØ, glad you liked Aural Sculptors, and thanks for leaving thanks over there - that's what makes the blogsphere keep turning! Grand that Adrian focuses on two of my favourite bands, the Stranglers and the Ruts - don't miss this one: http://auralsculptors.blogspot.com/2014/10/ruts-dc-o2-academy-leicester-3rd.html. And, by the by, thanks for your political posts supporting Bernie Sanders - nice to see some sanity on the other side of the pond!

    Cheers and enjoy, Dave Sez.

  5. Hi again again NØ, and after my previous comment, I just noodled around checking out my Ruts collection to find that the absolutely rarest of the rare still has live links despite being posted back in 2008: Kevin Coyne's 1980 long-deleted double album "Sanity Stomp", of which the first disc was recorded with the full Ruts DC and featuring one of their compositions, "Formula Eyes". Power pop rather than dub, but need I say go get, you won't regret?
