There is a bit of confusion for me to describe this album recorded in live in 2007. The problem is to find the correct info, details and exact description about who, when and how it was released and distributed. According to Discogs this is a live concert made by Wattie and co. in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. But the recording didn't was released until 2015 through record label "Let Them Eat Vinyl" on vinyl format. It seems "Captain Oi" also distribute this vinyl album made in a limited edition to 500 copies, despite everybody can to see and to listen to it on youtube HERE . Strictly musical we can to affirm without doubt the album has a high quality sound, good technical level and also a good songs collection of the band from 1979 until nowadays.

Scottish punk rock legends The Exploited playing their headlining set live in Edinburgh on 13th December, 2014. Homeground gig with a totally enthusiastic audience! Wattie looked good even after his surgery earlier this year. Most of tracks sound closer than punk hardcore classics than its metal crossover period and the quality sound is frankly good.

Style:        Punk        Hardcore






























"Fuck the System" is an album by the hardcore punk band The Exploited, released in 2003 by Dream Catcher Records. Ironically, this album was available in the US in a "clean version" with its anti-authoritarian title censored to "F*** the System" and edits made to the tracks themselves. The production value of this CD is much higher than their earlier work. The musical style is a total and clear return to the named "Punk 82" like their celebrated "Troops of tomorrow" and other albums and also punk bands from early 80s decade, specially from 1982, when punk-rock became accelerated in hardcore with Discharge, GBH or Varukers in UK, or in USA with DRI, MDC or Minor Threat.













CONTROVERSY : On 14 October 2003, about 500 fans of the band started a riot in Montreal, Canada after an Exploited concert was cancelled due to the band not be allowed into the country. Rioters destroyed eight cars and set them on fire; broke 11 store windows and caused other damage. The band were banned from playing in Mexico City due to the riot.

"Beat the Bastards" is an album by the scottish band The Exploited, released in 1996 through Rough Justice Records. The songs "Law for the rich" and "Police TV" both contain audio samples from the 1971 feature film A Clockwork Orange. Intro before song "Beat the bastards" contains sample from film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. Lisbeth Salander (played by Noomi Rapace) wears a t-shirt with the album's cover art in the Swedish film adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009 film). The album had very commercial succes but it was not much accepted in the underground hardcore punk scene, which considered the album too much metalized. Some people described it as "crossover" or simply thrash metal style with Oi! music lyrical themes as its other albums. In 2014 "Nuclear Blast records" made the album again on different formats: CD , LP, cassette, etc.

"The massacre"
Year:  1990
Country:  UK
City:  Edinburgh
Label:  Nuclear Blast
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  44 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk Metal




























The Exploited are a Scottish rock band from the second wave of UK punk, formed in 1979. Originally an Oi! band, they transformed into a faster hardcore punk band and finally in 1990, they played "crossover" with strong thrash-metal influences. The Exploited In fact it can be considered a band that inspired later hardcore bands and even thrash metal bands. "The Massacre" and "Beat the bastards" are the two closest thrash-metal albums, but already in its beginning they made some kind of seminal, ultra simple and primitive thrash. "Out of control", "Free flight" or "Royalty" is 3 tracks of 1980 with a base and a repetition scheme is reminiscent thrash. In "The massacre" metal influence is so great that even the cover, back and all the artwork accompanying the disc, seems straight out of a heavy metal band. Even the posers and super-exaggerated costume showing for the band´s members reminds a little falsehood of some heavy metal stars. Despite having some good tracks like "Don't pay the poll tax," "Boys in blue", "Blown out of the sky" or "The massacre," the album was not well received in general in the orthodox hardcore punk... and also to mention the disgusting words against the fanzine "Maximum Rock'n'Roll" and the controversy between The Exploited and some american bands like Dead Kennedys or Septic Death, early 80's decade.

"Horror epics"
Year:  1984
Country:  Scotland, UK
City:  Edinburgh
Label:  Captain Oi!
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:     Gothic       Punk     Hardcore





























One of the best and most original release of all The Exploited discography could be this "Horror epics" from 1984, which can mix the typical punk hardcore sound with another styles such as: dark wave, death rock or even goth rock, and frankly the result is excellent and brilliant. Even the cover and back of the album is original If we compare it with the rest of the covers. Another new is the electronic drums which were recorded, one, two and three drums at the same time, with the goal to get an effect of reverb or echo in the rhythmic section. Similar reverb or "echo" effect was aplied on voices, chorus, guitars and bass. I ignore the reasons but the album was issued firstly in the USA (1984) and one year later in UK and Europe. Is this some kind of goth hardcore?

"Let's start a war..."
Year:  1983
Country:  Scotland, UK
City:  Ediburgh
Label:  Nuclear Blast
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk         Hardcore





























In 1983 The Exploited repeat the same formule for “Troops of Tomorrow”, we mean, a mix of punk and hardcore with lyrical themes closer Oi! band (violence, war, nihilism, etc.). Anyway was a good album and includes the great song "God saved the Queen" which is one of the best Exploited tracks in my personal opinion.

"Troops of tomorrow"
Year:  1982
Country:  Scotland, UK
City:  Edindbunrgh
Label:  Warner Music
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Hardcore






























The Exploited is the only one band responsible to named "Punk 82" to this kind of british hardcore music, but in opposite to the optimistic and pacifist american bands like Minor Threat, MDC, DRI or Bad Brains, Wattie and company continue to sing about nihilism, pesimism, military life, war, violence, chaos and disorder. Strictly musical the album is an excellent exemple of fast punk or "proto-hardcore" from 1980 and they made a very good The Vibrators cover song which named the disc "Troops of tomorrow". In the next issues several labels: "Roadrunner" (Warner Music), "Secret", "Link", "Captain Oi!", etc. added more bonus tracks to the original album but the original had just thirteen songs.

"Punks not dead"
Year:  1981
Country:  Scotland, UK
City:  Edinburgh
Label:   Secret
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  15
Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk



















"Punks Not Dead" is the debut studio album by the scottish oi! / punk band The Exploited, released in 1981 firstly on "Secret Records". Strongly working class and loyal to the first impulses of the 1976 punk movement, the album was a reaction to critics who believed the genre was dead, and against popular trends such as New Wave, hardcore and post-punk. It contains the double A side singles "Army Life / Fuck the Mods" and the later follow up "I Believe in Anarchy". "Army Life" details the experiences of Wattie Buchan when he was a 17 year old squaddie on a tour of duty in Belfast in the late 70s. Supported by a tour with the Anti-Nowhere League, the album was a commercial success and is regarded as one of the definitive Oi! albums, and its popularity gave rise to a variety of traditional punk bands including The Business. "Punks not dead" peaked at no 20 on the UK charts in May of that year, gave the band a national following in the United Kingdom and it was the top selling 1981 independent release. All tracks are writen by the band except "Mucky pup", a good song of Puncture, an unkown 1977 band.
