I Limit erano una delle bande di power-pop che intrattenevano il pubblico punk del CBGB's alla fine degli anni '70. I Limit evolsero nei Band Of Outsiders e nel 1984 si fusero con i Certain General per registrare Far Away In America (Sourmash). Poi, con ben tre EP usciti nel 1985 e l'album Everything Takes Forever (L'Invitation Au Suicide), i Band Of Outsiders introdusse in maniera sempre piu` massiccia elementi psichedelici, prediligendo l'atmosfera sulla melodia. I Wish I Was Your Kid e` il classico di quel periodo.

Il complesso si spense di fatto dopo Act Of Faith (Barclay, 1986). Postumo, usci` il live Armistice Day (Nocturnal, 1989) (Conviction, 1989). No Reflection (Repulsion, 1992) raccoglie il meglio del gruppo.

Il leader, cantante e chitarrista, Marc Jeffrey impiego` un po' a organizzarsi, ma poi torno` (nel 1990) sulle scene nei panni del menestrello solitario. L'album Playtime (Conviction) e` uno dei piu` dimessi della nuova generazione di cantautori.

The Limit were one of the Power pop bands that entertained the punk public of CBGBs at the end of the 70's. The Limit evolved into Band of Outsiders, and in 1984 joined up with Certain General to record Far Away In America (Sourmash). Then with three good EPs released in 1985 and the album Everything Takes Forever (L'IAS) the Band of Outsiders introduced in an ever-increasing manner psychedelic elements, favoring atmosphere over melody. I Wish I was Your Kid is the classic of this period.

The group burned out de facto after Act Of Faith (Barclay, 1986). The live album Armistice Day (Nocturnal, 1989) (Conviction, 1989) and No Reflection (Repulsion, 1992) collect the best material of the band.

The leader, singer and guitarist, Marc Jeffrey took some to organize himself but then returned (in 1990) on the scene in the clothes of a solitary minstrel . The album Playtime (Conviction) is one of the most humble of the new generation of songwriters.
