Love in Vain

The Story of The Ruts and Ruts D.C.

by Roland Link

Published by Cadiz Music / Sosumi - 978095717173

Hard back, 416 pages


New book available to buy here...




August 2015

'Love In Vain: The Story Of The Ruts and Ruts D.C.' is so much more than just another rock biography. Work initially began over five years ago when author Roland Link began meticulously researching the life and times of The Ruts/Ruts D.C.; a story that is as real and brutal as it is joyous and righteous. Widely and quite rightly regarded by those that know as one of the greatest punk bands of all time, The Ruts enjoyed three whirlwind years of success and a string of hits including 'In A Rut' (their debut single, released by reggae band Misty In Roots, sharing a common fight against racism and the National Front), 'Babylon's Burning', 'Something That I said' and 'Staring At The Rude Boys' before releasing their now classic album 'The Crack' in 1979. Blessed with the musical talent to fuse angry street punk rebel anthems with bass heavy dub and reggae, The Ruts huge potential was cut short when singer Malcolm Owen tragically passed away in 1980. 'Love In Vain' follows the band's story from their inception at the initial explosion of punk to their current re-birth as founding members Segs Jennings and Dave Ruffy continue to perform and create under the Ruts D.C. banner. A hardback edition with over 400 pages, including rare photos from The Ruts and Ruts DC archive.
