* INCLUDES REPLICA OF OUTCASTS’ 1979 FULL LENGHT DEBUT PROMOTIONAL POSTER! *
Known as the ‘bad boys of the Ulster punk scene,’ Belfast quartet the Outcasts was formed in 1977 by bass ist/vocalist Greg Cowan, with brothers Colin and Martin on drums and rhythm guitar, along with Getty Getgood on searing lead. With their debut gig descending to a riot, the group began a long tenure of local notoriety, shift ing members and styles as their sound evolved, before imploding in 1985. This ace compila tion gathers early singles for the IT, Good Vibrations and GBH labels, as well as later work for Anagram, New Rose, and their own Outcasts Only imprint, presenting the fearsome foursome at their very best.
