There appear to have been at least four groups called The Outcasts: 1) A Northern Irish punk band
2) A 1960s US group from Ohio
3) A 1960s US group from New York
4) A 1960s US group from Texas 1) Belfast, Ireland (1977 – present)
The Outcasts were formed in June 1977 in Belfast by the three Cowan brothers, Greg Cowan (vocals / bass), Martin Cowan (guitar/vocals), Colin Cowan (drums) and their friend Colin ‘Getty’ Getgood (guitar), playing their first gig two months later.
