Here is what Sonic Boom Six say about the Ruff N Ready Tour on their website:

"As the more eagle-eyed amongst you may have garnered by now, the RUFF AND READY TOUR will be winging it's merry way across the UK this October. Once again we've moved heaven and earth (well, made some arrangements) to ensure that we're offering the best bang for your bullion and got three of the best underground acts coming along with us for a fortnight. Opening will be CHIEF from Liverpool. They play a suburb scouse blend of posi hardcore punk in the vein of Strike Anywhere, Propagandhi, Gorilla Biscuits and all that good stuff. After them will be JB CONSPIRACY who I'm sure many of you will be familiar with plying their ska punk rock trade. Fans of Howards Alias, Capdown, Mad Caddies will be suitably overjowed. And - the surprise international representation - Canada's acoustic ska king CHRIS MURRAY will be playing before the Boom. Expect some of the most soulful ska and reggae on the planet at a venue near(ish) you. Across the tour we've tried to visit some of the towns that we have missed over the last year. So, if for instance, you live in Manchester, then tough! Travel to Liverpool. Think about how often they have to do it the other way around... Anyway, come add yourself on the MYSPACE"

This is kind of make or break as far as booking shows like this go so if you want to see some more of the finest from the underground punk scene please come and show your support for this one!
