Outcasts - Blood & Thunder

Image Hosted by

1982 Abstract/New Rose records Northern Ireland's The Outcasts. I think a combination of the first "Punk & Disorderly" LP (the track "Mania" was included) and a John Peel session of the time, which included at least four tracks off this L.P. has cemented it in the old psychee. To my mind a far superiour version of "Frustration" is included on this L.P. than the original 7 inch of a few years previous.

Track List:
Winter (Martin Cowan) 3'15
Machine gun (M.C.) 2'25
Sex and glory (M.C.) 2'40
Gangland Warfare (M.C.) 2'55
Programme Love (M.C.) 3'12
Princes of Oblivion (M.C.) 3'33
Frustration (M.C.) 2'14
Angel Face (Rossall + Shepherd) 2'40
Magnum force (M.C.) 2'32
Beating and Screaming (Pt 1) (M.C.) 3'00
Beating and Screaming (Pt 2) (M.C.) 2'54
Mania (M.C.) 3'08

Check out this video for "Winter". Camp as Christmas.

Always liked this album. There really are some cracking numbers on this LP.
About the video: I first thought it was Billy Idol + some lost members of Village People!!!!

@ J.
Yeah it's all a bit Blue Oyster bar that video innit! Still like you say there are some cracking numbers on this.
Finally went into self-destruct mode today then. Shame as there was some really good stuff up there.
