Let's get one thing straight: The Exploited are not 'punkers' or any of the other cutesy, watered down, MTV friendly names you might want to call them. The Exploited are punk rock. If you've got something to say, then shout it! And most of all, if you're going to be in an obnoxious punk rock band, then be in a really obnoxious punk band!

Happily Wattie is back to full health following his heart issues and will be firing on all cylinders when he, his brother Wullie & the rest of the band hit the stage on 24th November.

The Outcasts were formed in Belfast in 1977 by three brothers, Martin, Colin and Greg Cowan and Getty (Colin Getgood).

They recorded 8 singles, 2 tracks on 2 ep's and 3 studio albums. 2 singles, 2ep's and 1 album were for the legendary Good Vibrations record label.1 later track got day time national UK radio air- play and reached the lower end of the UK charts.

They recorded 3 sessions for the famous BBC broadcaster , John Peel, appeared 3 times on UK National TV music programmes; the Old Grey Whistle Test, Jool's Holland's The Tube etc.
The band toured regularly in the UK and Europe and took part in the legendary punk festival in Leeds in 1981; Christmas on Earth.
They split in early 1985, three years after the death of original drummer Colin (Cowser) Cowan.
The Outcasts reformed in 2011 to play Rebellion Festival,in England (one of the largest independent festival in the world), which they have been invited to play every year since and will be playing again in 2019; for the last few years they have been playing 2 sets, acoustic and electric.
They are featured in the critically acclaimed and BAFTA nominated movie, Good Vibrations, they are also featured in an Arte documentary [ a popular art TV series made in France ], which was shown in 2014 in France, Belgium and Germany; also a number of compilation and live albums have also been released, as have 2 DVD's.
Since they reformed The Outcasts have toured constantly in the UK, Ireland and across Europe and toured a lot in 2017, playing a number of festivals [this was part of their 40th Anniversary Tour], lncluding North West Calling in Manchester, Rebellion in Blackpool, Punk& Disorderly in Berlin and Belsonic Festival, with SLF, The Stranglers and Rut DC. in their home town, Belfast.
In July 2019 The Outcasts will be releasing a 3 track ep on vinyl (5tracks on cd) of new material for a US Record Label, Violated Records.
Also a double gatefold album of all their singles, both sides, plus some sessions and live recordings has recently been released by Secret Mission Records, based in Japan and the USA and features notes by Martin explaining how he wrote each song, period photo's and period press articles. The first pressing of the vinyl sold out in a few days, the cd has now also been released in the last few days.
The Outcasts have just returned from touring Japan, where they played to sold out venues, with the audiences knowing all their songs and going crazy!
