The Outcasts from Ashland were another great lost Kentucky garage band. Their song "Loving You Sometimes" was released on the PLATO label out of nearby Milton, WV and has gradually come to be something of a belated underground hit over the years since it was originally recorded.
The Outcasts included Nick Wickware on drums (deceased); Dick Hall-Hawkins on bass (deceased); Ronnie Gibson on lead guitar; Ralph Morman and myself on vocals. .
The Outcasts mostly played school parties, bars, the Hullabaloo Club in Huntington and we auditioned for Buddha Records in 1969. The group disbanded in 1969.
The record received local airplay and got on the Billboard charts. Lovin You has been released 4 different times on 4 different labels. Plato was the original release.
