Playlist 20.06.11

Stuart Bailie | 10:34 UK time, Tuesday, 21 June 2011

Greg Cowan and Brian young were in the studio last night. During the punk wars, they were intense rivals, leaders of The Outcasts and Rudi. But that was all fixed up years ago, when they played together to launch the NI punk book. 'It Makes You Want To Spit'. They toured as Shame Academy, giving respect to each other's songs and now Brian is deputising with the reformed Outcasts. They are booked for The Empire in Belfast, July 30 and then Blackpool's Rebellion festival. Martin Cowan and Raymond Falls are also back in the firm. While the band may have overplayed the agro card back then, they also had the tunes, the voice, humour, glam rock and a rumble-thump dynamic.

They also have an album out on Spit Records called 'Vive Lyon'. It's taken from some vintage radio recordings and it does bear up the myth that the bold boys from Belfast were genuinely big in France. Vive le rock.
