“A nicely constructed primer on the The Outcasts’ history to date and the cross-community nature of the original Belfast punk scene.” — The Irish News
In war-torn 1977 Belfast three brothers and a friend formed a band and led the Punk Explosion. They rejected the status quo and the sectarian violence – and yet their entourage became known as the Locusts – because “anything they couldn’t eat, they destroyed”.
As Punk reaches its 40th Anniversary, some members of The Outcasts are now approaching 60. And they’re back on the road, performing all over Europe – even on a boat in Berlin. Have these guys no lawns to mow? No golf clubs to join? Can they actually play their instruments this time around? Who are The Outcasts now? Are they still punks? And what is punk anyhow? This film starts in tumult, and ends up somewhere else entirely.
