The Outsiders was Mick Wayne's first group.

After recording one single for Decca Records in 1965, with Jimmy Page on guitar, the Outsiders broke up the following year at which point Wayne joined Hull musicians The Hullaballoos, replacing Ricky Knight briefly before they too broke up.

Mick Wayne formed Junior's Eyes in early 1968, the group recorded one album and is notable for acting as David Bowie's backing band during 1969.
