MIDDLE CLASS RUT's "No Name No Color" Shed Light on Truth
We live in tough times. Now, you can deny this and listen to the suits on T.V. spew their poison propaganda on how our economy is “healing”. You can sit and job search with your degrees on your wall or years of experience aching in your bones while you listen to your favorite politician preach on about how the unemployment rate is dropping. Or, take a chance. Open your eyes and take a good hard look around.
We, as hard working middle class Americans are a dying breed. Work, sleep, work, sleep, and repeat seem to be a trend that we are stuck in. “Thinking that your life at the time is defined by a hammer and a nail, and you just gotta like it!” MIDDLE CLASS RUT’s Zack (guitar, vox) half yells, half sings in the song, “Lifelong Dayshift”. As a matter of fact, Zack and Sean (percussion, vox, guitar) have their eyes open, and they won’t be denied their chance to shed light on truth.
MIDDLE CLASS RUT is an American rock duo hailing from the working class Sacramento, California area. They've toured with the likes of SOCIAL DISTORTION, ALICE IN CHAINS, THEM CROOKED VULTERS, and CHEVELLE. Released in 2010, “No Name No Color" is MC Rut’s first full length LP. It’s a twelve track protest for the working person. The self produced album is a true tribute to everyone who has had to struggle along the path of success. It’s a culmination of writing songs based on immediate ideas captured in snapshots of sound. With a wonderfully put together album, MC RUT has given us fuel to ask questions, never settle, and educate those around us. After all, we must look after each other. We live in tough times.
