Protex are a Belfast Punk band which formed in 1978. Their first records were issued on Good Vibrations records. The original line-up was: Paul Maxwell (bass/vocals), Owen McFadden (drums), David McMaster (guitar/vocals), Aidan Murtagh (guitar/vocals).
Stiff Little Fingers, Starjets, Rudi, The Outcasts, Xdreamists, The Moondogs, The Defects, and of course our favourites The Undertones and Protex. Why we like them is simple, they all make great catchy punk songs. These bands have anthems with lyrics that you can chant at the top of your lungs when you’re closing out the bar, huddled with your best buds, stumbling over each other’s beer soaked shoes, singing and dancing like its Christmas. Protex was greatly influenced by The Clash and took their original name, Protex Blue, from an album track on The Clash’s eponymous debut album. The band did not realise the Clash song was about condoms. The original line-up was: Paul Maxwell (bass/vocals), Owen McFadden (drums), David McMaster (guitar/vocals), and Aidan Murtagh (guitar/vocals).

Smarter Than U – The Undertones. I was considered too young to be worthy of joining any such gang and, to be honest, that particular vocation did not interest me in the slightest. Listenin’ In – Protex. Musically, we were treated either by the Glam/Heavy Rock tunes from our peers, talked about in the schoolyard and the playground, or Country & Western ballads from our parents. I had already been introduced to The Stranglers through one of my best mates at school, spending the majority of ’77 and ’78 in his attic room, playing ‘Rattus Norvegicus’ and the various other seminal punk records practically non-stop. The walls of this room were decorated with cuttings from the NME, displaying all the main punk (anti) heroes – Rotten, Strummer and our own personal favourite JJ Burnel.

Protex again recorded on Good Vibrations. Back to Dublin; Punk music in general inspired a whole slew of other Irish bands with members of future bands like the Sawdoctors, My Bloody Valentine and even Hot House Flowers being members of punk groups in their teens. The Undertones from Derry - Simply one of the best Irish bands ever. Four impressive albums, the first two are pop punk before the term was invented. The O’Neill Brothers would form That Petrol Emotion after the Undertone’s demise, one of the saddest days in Irish popular music (especially if you were only fifteen at the time). They reformed in 2005 and have since released 5 albums including an album or two with Steve Ignorant of Crass one of which managed to reach in the Irish Top 10. They’ve also supported the Pistols, Damned and recorded with TV Smith of the Adverts.
The original line-up was: Paul Maxwell (bass/vocals), Owen McFadden (drums), David McMaster (guitar/vocals), Aidan Murtagh (guitar/vocals). Protex formed in 1978, inspired by the band members experiencing first-hand The Clash’s landmark visit to Belfast in 1977 when their gig was cancelled at the last minute due to insurance problems. The Clash’s Belfast visit in 1977 is considered by many to be the catalyst for the Punk movement in Northern Ireland.
