Ruts DC - Animal Now


On this date in 1981, Ruts DC, formerly known as The Ruts, released their first album under their new name. It was called Animal Now. It contained the single, "Different View". The London reggae-influenced punk band released two albums as The Ruts before the heroin overdose death of lead singer Malcolm Owen on July 14, 1980. They tried to carry on under the new name, Ruts DC, with very limited success, and disbanded in 1983.
