The Expelled

Profile:
Formed: Leeds, Yorkshire, England, UK

Typical Riot City rockers, Leeds' Expelled had a female vocalist (Joanne Ball) and were inevitably compared to Vice Squad. The fact that their producer was Vice Squad's drummer (Shane Baldwin) didn't help. They had one raunchy single that was nearly very good on both sides ('Government Policy' and - especially - 'Make It Alone') but they were largely uninspired and pretty boring. The 17-track Captain Oi! CD contains both of their singles and an array of unreleased tracks, all recorded in the early 80s.

Lineups:

Summer 1981- December 82

Jo Ball - Vocals
Tim Ramsden - Guitar
Craig 'Macca' McEvoy - Bass (pre-The Underdogs, pre-The Tricycle Thieves)
