The Outcasts: 1978-85, 3CD

The Outcasts: 1978-85, 3CD

3rd March 2020 0 By John Deaux

The Outcasts are regulars on the Punk Festival circuit, often playing Rebellion and Punk N Disorderly. It’s thanks (in part) to these appearances that there’s a whole new audience discovering this band. 

This 3CD digipak housing material from 1978 -1985 is a great place to start for new fans. For old fans it’s a great way to finally retire the old records and gain some new(ish)material as well.

Disc 1 contains the debut album Self Conscious Over You along with 3 tracks from the Frustration E.P, side A and B from the Justa Nother Teenage Rebel single and  the track The Cops Are Comin’

Having these tracks added is superb. The original singles are worth a bit of money now so if you have them, you can put them away for safe keeping.

The 2nd CD contains the album Blood and Thunder. Again this has added tracks from singles as well as an instrumental version of Nowhere which was originally issued on a test press of the single Nowhere Left To Run. There’s some blinding tracks on this album. The obvious being the single Angel Face but for me it has to be Machine Gun.  I can’t actually put into words why. It just is

The 3rd and final CD contains the Peel Sessions from 1981 and 1982 and the Seven Deadly Sins 12″ single. This isn’t a bad way to round off this set. Although I would’ve liked to see the inclusion of the Vive Lyon album. But you can’t always get what you want. 

Overall, this is a great way to gain the essentials and some nice rarities. The production value is ace and the 20 page booklet is well done. 

Well worth a purchase.
Score 7/10
