Punk band The Outcasts tour marks Good Vibrations release

The Outcasts – the bad boys of the Northern Ireland punk scene in the late 70s – have announced a mini-tour to coincide with the release of Good Vibrations.

The award-winning movie is a heartfelt biopic about 'Godfather of Punk' Terri Hooley who signed the band to his label in 1978.

Frontman Greg Cowan said: "It is amazing that a band that started in 1977 ... would be now in 2013 announcing an Irish tour, including their first gig in Derry/Londonderry since 1981.

"As well as being excited about performing at different venues across Ireland we are so proud to be part of a major movie release."

The first gig will be in Sandinos in Londonderry on March 22, followed by a second on April 5 at Auntie Annie's Porterhouse in Belfast.

As a result, you won't be terribly popular. Many will complain about your methods, but nobody can argue with the results of your work. You know how to get the best performance from the people around you. That's a rare quality that should be championed. You should be gentler with people in your private life.More
