Formed in Belfast in January 1977, although they didn’t actually get all their instruments together until February of that year. They took the name Outcasts after being turned away from five nightclubs in two weeks! After building a strong local following, they were picked up by the local It record label, who released the band’s debut single, “Frustration” in May 1978, the album “Self Conscious Over You” followed in 1979.
After splitting in 1985, they reformed for Rebellion in 2011 and have been gigging since.

Decadence has always been the cornerstone of rock ‘n’ roll. From brazen attitudes to loud riffs, rock ‘n’ roll has always been indulgent in life’s sinful pleasures. The band has reunited, brimming with confidence their patented throwback rock flair is sonic treat, their songs are thunderous, dynamic three chord stormers!
The Blue Carpet Band
Powerhouse five-piece garage punk rock’n’rollers based in North London. Like classic blues-rock proponents mixing it up with early New York punk, think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy, on a mission to bring back good real music to London then the world.
A Post-Punk vision of the future whilst embracing the past…
Taking the post-punk blueprint of bands like Joy Division and Magazine, the frozen intensity of early Banshees and the art-school nihilism of the Velvets through to the Stooges, Morgellons have created a sound that, although rooted in a rich musical past, has a relevance and urgency that marks them out as something very different from their peers.
With a blatantly blue collar outlook on the world, blended with a seriously street punk sound that doesn’t hide from its metal or glam roots. They play Hard Rocking street punk that shows off their roots in the ’80s scene. Comparisons to bands Exploited or Cockney Rejects are not without warrant, as there is an inherent rawness to what they’re doing. It’s explicit and honest.
