 Before fronting classic post-punk group The Sound, Adrian
Borland was a Wimbledon teenager enamored of Iggy
Pop and the Velvet Underground. With friends, he formed
The Outsiders. In 1976, they home-recorded Calling On
Youth, a searching full-length that straddles nihilo-punk
argot (“Terminal Case” and “I’m Screwed Up”) as well as
smudged glam balladry (“Start Over” and “Weird”). Its
release in 1977, on the group’s own Raw Edge label, with
Borland’s cityscape abstraction on the cover, marked the
first independent punk full-length in the United Kingdom.
The Outsiders, featuring bassist Bob Lawrence and
drummer Adrian “Jan” James, were punk in the moment
before punk cut ties with solos and five minute songs. (Close
Up, released in 1978, is more streamlined.) Like the Saints
or Crime, they still trafficked in rock ’n’ roll. Calling On
Youth, though, announces Borland as more than a precious
teenage bandleader. The nervous introspection, wiry leads
and negative space that he would refine solo and in The
Sound, Second Layer and Witch Trials glistens throughout
Calling On Youth, beckoning rediscovery.
