the ruts.staring at the rude boys




It's a very small world in the middle of a crowd
the room gets dark when the music gets loud
treble cuts thru' when the rythmn takes the bite
but there's no room to move 'cause the floor is packed tight
A voice shouts loud
'we'll never surrender'
a voice in the crowd
'never surrender'
A hand in the crowds flying propaganda:
'never surrender, we'll never surrender'
The skins in the corner are staring at the bar
the rude boys are dancing to some heavy heavy ska
it's getting so hot people are dripping with sweat
the punks in the corner are speeding like a jet
Staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys...
A bunch of peers march in on the dm's
with some standing there saluting the air
they wanna be pirates but the sea is not calm
tattooed crossbows on their arm
A voice shouts loud
'we'll never surrender'
a voice in the crowd
'never surrender'
Another hand fly fly propaganda,
propaganda, propaganda
The lights come alive in a blinding flash
dance floor clears as the mutants clash
everyone leaves when the heavy's arrive
someone hits the floor, someone takes a dive
Staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys...
Staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
dancing with the rude boys
staring at the rude boys
staring at the rude boys...

We'll never surrender x 8


Χθες μου εσκασε στο μυαλο αυτη η μπαντα,
βλεποντας κλιπακια στο you tube.
Τι μεγαλο και συγχρονως ατυχο συγκροτημα ηταν αυτο.
Αν δεν ειχαν χασει τον τραγουδιστη τους(MALCOM OWEN) θα κανανε 
μεγαλα πραγματα.

The Ruts were a reggae-influenced British punk rock band, notable for the 1979 Top 10 hit "Babylon's Burning", and an earlier single "In a Rut", which was not a hit but was much played and highly regarded by the UK BBC Radio 1 disc jockey, John Peel.
  The Ruts were formed on 18 August 1977, the band consisted of Malcolm Owen (vocals), Paul Fox (guitar), John "Segs" Jennings (bass) and Dave Ruffy (drums). As part of the Misty in Roots People Unite collective based in Southall, west London, the band were active in anti-racist causes and played a number of benefits for Rock Against Racism.

 Malcolm Owen was found dead in the bathroom of his parents' house in Hayes, from a heroin overdose on 14 July 1980 at the age of 26.







On 16 July 2007 the band reformed for the first time in 27 years, and played a special benefit gig for Fox, following his diagnosis as having Lung Cancer, and played a headline spot at 2007's Wasted/Rebellion Festival. Henry Rollins stood in for Owen.

Fox died on 21 October of the same year, at the age of 56.
