Ruts – “The Crack”

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 never a hit but was much played and highly regarded by the noted disc jockey John Peel.
“The Crack” is The Ruts first album, released in 1979 and containing the UK hit singles: “Babylon’s Burning” (No. 7 in the UK chart in June 1979) and “Something That I Said” (No. 29 in September 1979) The white-reggae-ish “Jah War” which was written in the aftermath of the Southall unrest and the over-use of force by the Special Patrol Group in 1979 was also released as a single but didn’t make the UK chart.
