(Shipping: September)
The Outsiders weren’t by-numbers punks, even though they regularly played Covent Garden hot-spot The Roxy. Frontman Adrian Borland was influenced by America’s Doors and Stooges, whose Iggy Pop was so moved by one of their early-1977 Roxy shows he joined them on stage. Following The Outsiders, Borland formed the moody and acclaimed post-punk outfit The Sound, who signed to the same label as Echo & the Bunnymen. After they split, he performed and recorded as Adrian Borland & The Citizens. He committed suicide on 26 April 1999.
One to Infinity is an EP and the second release the Outsiders, released in November 1977.
