Ruts' Tribute Details Revealed

Legendary UK punk band The Ruts will have their legacy celebrated on January 25th, as a host of punk figures unite to pay tribute to the band - and in particular to guitarist Paul Fox who lost his fight against cancer late last year.

Artists confirmed for the tribute night include the Alabama 3, TV Smit, Captain Sensible, Max Splodge and The Glass Heroes with many more to be confirmed. This follows on from last years Ruts reformation show, when US punk priest Henry Rollins stood in for original singer Malcolm Owen in what has been described as one of the greatest punk gigs of all time.

A film of that night will be released later in the year, the cast including Misty In Roots and The Damned - reflecting the group's mixture of punk and reggae.

The Ruts' tribute night takes place in Shepherd's Bush Empire on January 25th.
