The Outriders

The Outriders formed in Hazel Grove (nr Stockport) in 1962 with a four piece line-up of Alan Kettle (Vocal) Chris Hallworth (Drums), Graham Joynson (Guitar) and Arthur Butler (Bass), playing in and around their base at Youth Clubs and a few pubs.

It wasn’t until Alan Kettle left and Giles Bodoano (Bodo) arrived on rhythm guitar and lead vocals that the band really took off.

Soon finding an audience across the North West THE OUTRIDERS became know for good hard rocking performances and fine playing.

“@Mrscflanagan Wow I was surprised, when I've seen my inbox about new comments from this site. So last year I was searching for information about them, but came up empty handed unfortunately. Just found bits of information here and there, was asking around on some similar websites/libraries, but did not find much, sorry. And I am not related to anybody personally, I just know a person, who was related. Wanted to surprise her with my findings.
If I find anything or come across any news later on, I will report back on here. And your last sentence means you sure they have a released vinyl somewhere out there?? If you have any more detail about that I would be glad to hear it, be it the release date or any smaller detail. Thanks and have a good one.”
