Protex are a Belfast Punk band which formed in 1978. Their first records were issued on Good Vibrations records. They formed part of the first wave of Belfast punk bands along with the likes of label-mates The Undertones and Rudi. 
Protex's debut live performance was in 1978 at Knock Methodist Church Hall in Belfast. By regular gigging around the city the band soon came to the attention of Terri Hooley. Hooley prompted them to record a three track debut 45 which he released on his Good Vibrations record label in November 1978 as issue GOT6. The Belfast label had previously released singles by Rudi, Victim, The Outcasts and The Undertones.
