For the first time ever on vinyl as a 2xLP set comes a complete remastered singles collection from the pioneering Belfast punk band. In the mid to late '70s, the Northern Ireland punk scene was flourishing with bands such as Rudi, Stiff Little Fingers, and Undertones, who were garnering international recognition and record deals. THE OUTCASTS, who formed in 1977, quickly became one of the most notorious of the bunch and took their name from the fact they were banned from five venues in two weeks. Because their early shows were known for being filled with violence, the press had dubbed them “the band you love to hate.” After continuous gigging at the now legendary Harp Bar, they built a loyal and fanatical following that found themselves working with Good Vibrations’ TERRI HOOLEY. This led to further label deals, tours, TV appearances, John Peel sessions, and even peaking on the UK indie charts. In 1982, COLIN COWAN died in a car crash and the future of the band seemed uncertain. Soon after, they decided to carry on, releasing singles and albums on New Rose and Anagram. Unfortunately, by 1985, the band decided to finally split. The Outcasts had no pretensions and, unlike their peers, never sought fame and fortune. Their only hope with this release is to introduce the band and their music to a new generation of listeners and keep the spirit of the Outcasts alive. This collection covers their entire career from 1977-1985. The tracks here are collected and remastered for the first time on vinyl, and come in a gate fold jacket with newly unearthed photos/news clippings, and liner notes for each track, from original member MARTIN COWAN, detailing the history of each track and session, and a poster insert. Limited to 500 copies.
