    The Ruts

    The Ruts

    Shortly after the NME announced that punk was dead, The Ruts came along and proved that it wasn’t. Their driving, reggae-infused punk embodied the whole late 70s Rock Against Racism ideal. And their amazing anthems, such as Babylon’s Burning, Staring At the Rude Boys and Something That I Said carried them into the charts and into the hearts of a generation…before tragedy struck.

    The Ruts story is told at length in Love In Vain - a massive tome written by Roland Link with a foreword by Henry Rollins of Black Flag and Sons Of Anarchy fame. I’ve dubbed the band “inspired, brilliant, tragic and thrilling in equal measure” so I’m genuinely delighted to welcome the surviving Ruts – Segsy and Dave Ruffy on to the show tonight!

    Whatever Happened To… The Stranglers?

    Whatever Happened To… The Stranglers?

    Hugh Cornwell was one of the major figures in early British punk rock. He was the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter in The Stranglers, the hugely influential band who scaled the charts with hits like No More Heroes, Peaches, and Always The Sun, and always marched to the beat of their own drum.



    Hugh smuggled Leon Trotsky into the charts and more covertly heroin – the real subject of their 1981 hit single Golden Brown.

    But he left the band 25 years ago to concentrate on his own recordings – earlier this month he released The Fall And Rise Of Hugh Cornwell, the first anthology of his post-Stranglers career, and he’s just begun a major acoustic tour of the UK.

    Here Hugh talks about his formative years in Kentish Town, North London, the band he formed with schoolmate Richard Thompson (later of Fairport Convention fame), and why he decided to go solo.

    Along the way he discusses the drug bust that saw him do time in Pentonville prison, biochemistry, his novels and his journey from entertaining gobbing yobs at those dangerously thrilling early punk gigs to literary snobs at the more refined Hay-on-Wye literary festival.

    Women Who Rock - Pride, Passion & Prejudice

    Women Who Rock - Pride, Passion & Prejudice

    Strong female artists have been a part of pop and rock since the beginning: incredible singers from Etta James and Janice Joplin to Adele and Paramore’s Hayley Williams have wowed the world with their talent. But for many it’s been an uphill battle, fighting exploitation and ingrained attitudes.

    Joining Garry tonight to discuss this fraught subject are three very different performers – Dominique Olliver, Danie Cox and Kristina Oberzan.

    Steve Diggle - Still A Buzz, Cock

    Steve Diggle - Still A Buzz, Cock

    Mancunian Steve Diggle is the guitarist and singer songwriter with the Buzzcocks… the seminal punk band who infiltrated the charts with brilliant, infectious songs such as ‘Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t)’, ‘Promises’ and ‘Harmony In My Head’ – back at a time when punk really did want to subvert mainstream music.

    Tonight’s show is a tour-de-force of punks on tour.  The Buzzcocks opened for the Sex Pistols at Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall, performed at the 100 Club punk festival in 1976 and toured with more recent household names Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

    Now clean, former Mod Steve speaks with devastating honesty about his experiences with hard drugs.

    As the Buzzcocks approach their 40th year, this complex and creative musician continues to perform both with them and as a solo artist. Why? It’s still a buzz, cock.

    Patti Boulaye: From Strife To Stardom

    Garry’s guest tonight Patti Boulaye shot to fame on ITV’s talent show New Faces. But hers is not a normal showbiz story.  Nigerian-born Patti lived through one of the worst genocides of the 20th century, growing up during the horrific Biafran civil war where one million people died either in fighting or from famine.

    Patti emigrated to London at 16, where she became an actress by accident… and a star through her pure talent.

    On tonight’s GBH, you’ll have an intimate encounter with a huge star… whose an heart is even bigger.
