Biography

Edinburgh, United Kingdom (1979 – present)

The Exploited are a legendary Scottish punk rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland in 1979. They were known for their DIY ethic and anarchist tendencies, crafting lyrics about chaos, anger and protest, and sometimes simply about having a good time. The band originated as a /Oi! band but then in 1987 they began incorporating elements of crossover thrash. The band was also known for their appearance, primarily before the mid 1990s, which featured dyed spiked mohawks, black leather jackets, black or blue denim, black boots and studs. The band has had frequent line-up changes but have remained together for 3 decades. The band was formed by vocalist Terry Buchan, but he soon left and was replaced by his brother Wattie Buchan. The band released singles such as Dogs of War and Dead Cities, the Army Life EP and the live album On Stage in the early 1980s. Their early work often appeared on independent charts in the UK. The band has been preparing to release a new album for the last several years.
