THE OUTSIDERS (RAW EDGE RECORDS SINGLE)

I think this band was really underrated. I like their album allot too . Sad they didn't release more , but then again , I am a fan of the Sound as well . The Outsiders were a three piece band from South London and were name checked in Caroline Coon's book 1988 A Punk Rock Explosion. They played a couple of times at The Roxy, Vortex and the usual punk circuit.
Heavily influenced by the Velvet Underground and Iggy & The Stooges their music is a Heartbreakers type melodic punk .Raw Edge was their own label
Adrian Borland continued after The Outsiders with The Sound making quite a few records but again without success. Sadly Adrian took his own life in the end.
