He never stood a chance

Via the Brittle Heaven website, and conclusive proof that Tony Parsons was always an arsehole:

“One to Infinity” - Review
"Tuneless, gormless, gutless. An Anglo middle-class version of Blue Oyster Cult’s rivet-punching guitar solos and protentious visions. The Outsiders are obese midgets who wear bicycle clips on their flairs (sic) because they think it makes them look punky. I like them a lot. It takes real punks to make a record like this."

by Tony Parsons

(NME November 26, 1977)

From reading the early reviews on the website, it looks like The Outsiders were considered the Keane of their day . . . and were hated accordingly.
