The Undertones

Another of my favourite bands. The Undertones first album was relaesed in 1979. They were a a bunch of kids from Derry who started of wanting to be Irelands answer to the Ramones. I saw them play in Cambridge I think in 1981 and they did include 1 or 2 Ramones songs in their set.

This is a great pop/punk album with some well known singles which achieved some success. Teenage Kicks was their break through as I well remember John Peel playing this song over and over on his Radio 1 show when he played punk from 10pm to 12pm every week day night.

Here comes the Summer says its all really it is the ‘Beach Boys go Punk’ a fantastic summer song.

Then there is of course two other singles that were released from this album Get Over You and Jimmy Jimmy.
