I am looking at songs that maybe never were played on the radio or songs that were and then stopped. If I don’t add new life to these songs they may become extinct. We may never hear of them again. I have to use my (limited) power to save these songs. I look forward to your help in this very important crusade.
Today we save “Babylon’s Burning” by The Ruts from extinction. “Babylon’s Burning” came in 1979 from the U.K.. The Ruts were part of the punk and post-punk scene with its mix of punk, dub & reggae. They became a favorite of BBC DJ John Peel and were featured in a couple Peel Sessions which helped the band gain notice. They were also part of the Rock Against Racism concert which featured The Clash in England to stop the racial divide. Drugs were the flame that burned out The Ruts. Singer, Malcolm Owen, was found dead of drug overdose in 1980.
Help save this song won’t you?
