Love the ruts, anyone know about the zion train peel session with some of them(seggs and ruffy)? BBC have got copyright and even zion train don't have a copy! Includes a cover of mob's witch hunt. Would love to hear it again, and so would zion train.

I was at this gig! The Satellites opened but seemed a bit out of it, at what I assume was a local gig for them and a big opportunity. There was a good reggae band called Exodus middle of the bill with the singer using an acoustic guitar which gave them a slightly different sound, then The Ruts were good. Bit of a crap night, load of skins there causing a bad smell, some people fighting over drinks that were set up on an ad hoc bar. Usual old bollocks, basically.
