THE RUTS – FEATURING HENRY ROLLINS
Anyone who missed this incredible show back in July missed what is being described as one of the “Best punk gigs ever.” Of course it was in tragic circumstances as guitarist Paul ‘Foxy’ Fox played his last ever show with the Ruts before passing away barely a month later. This DVD does a fine job as a tribute for Foxy and the Ruts and shows both what a great guitarist he was, and just how good the Ruts could be. With Henry Rollins doing a fine, underplayed job on vocals, the band tear through anthems like ‘Something That I Said’ and ‘Staring At The Rudeboys’, plus there’s clips from all the supporting cast including the Damned and the U.K. Subs. And with a poignant interview with Foxy a few days after the show, plus insights from friends and members of the support acts, this double DVD is an essential memento from one of punk rock’s greatest, and sometimes unsung bands.
