The Expelled


The Expelled are a punk rock band first formed in July 1981 in Leeds, England. The original line-up consisted of Jo Ball (vocals), Tim Ramsden (guitar), Craig 'Macca' McEvoy (bass) and Rick Fox (drums). After gigging around Leeds the band signed a record deal with Riot City Records after Rick Fox gave a demo tape to the drummer of Vice Squad, (one of the groups chief influences). They went on to release a 3-track extended player and a single both in 1982 and then do a John Peel session on BBC Radio 1 in January 1983. Read more on Last.fm

They went on to release a 3-track extended player and a single both in 1982 and then do a John Peel session on BBC Radio 1 in January 1983. Ball left in 1983 and the band tried out several female vocalists, touring with one (Jewlie) and recording two songs with another (Penny, a girlfriend of Vice Squad guitarist Dave Bateman) before deciding to carry on as a three-piece with McEvoy taking over on vocals. The new line-up recorded four tracks for an unreleased 12", Waiting for Tomorrow, before Riot City Records ran into financial problems and the band split in May 1984. McEvoy went on to play bass for The Underdogs, Fox played drums for Cross Connection, and Tim Ramsden hung up his guitar. Following the release of a track by The Expelled on a 1999 compilation album put out by the Captain Oi! label Rick Fox decided to put the band back together and the original line-up rehearsed, but never gigged, before going their separate ways. Still determined to reform the group Fox asked Becky Laurance, the singer with another band he had joined around this time, The Tricycle Thieves, to front The Expelled and again contacted McEvoy who brought with him Dougie, the lead guitarist from his other band, The Poison Hearts. The new line-up were still touring as of 2003.
