After a brief stint in the British Army, Buchan returned to his home city of Edinburgh, Scotland, inspired by the punk rock movement. In his absence, his brother Willie had formed a punk band, which would eventually become The Exploited. Buchan quickly took on the duty of a vocalist. The band continues to record and tour in the 2000s. Although the band started out playing Oi! and streetpunk, the band eventually developed a more thrash metal-influenced sound.
