Allied Autonomy

Ruts DC is the follow up name used by the surviving three members of the reggae-influenced British punk rock band The Ruts.

Formed in 1977 at the height of the Punk revolution, their seminal track “In A Rut” is considered to be a punk anthem and “Babylon Burning” was a UK top 10 hit in1979.

In 2016 the Ruts DC’s ‘Music Must Destroy” album was voted, No1 Album of the year in Vive Le Rock magazine, in 2017 they toured as special guests with the Stranglers on their sell out tour, and now on the back of their UK tour they make debut at the Hat Factory.
