Their influence has spread far and wide - their Teenage Kicks single was the favourite single of ALL time for John Peel.


Formed whilst teenagers in Derry, Ireland in 1975 and taking shape mid-76 following a diet of the Ramones, Nuggets-style garage bands and the emerging UK punk scene, The Undertones - much like the Buzzcocks - churned out two minute punk / pop classics.


Their reputation due in no small part to unforgettable songs released from ’77 onwards - about girls, petty jealousies, spotty neuroses and chocolate - including Teenage Kicks, My Perfect Cousin, Get Over You. You’ve Got My Number, Here Comes The Summer, Jimmy Jimmy and loads more over four brilliant albums before initially disbanding in 1983.


"Standing here watching this perfect jukebox band you are reminded by just how many great songs The Undertones have, every riff, every vocal line, every moment drips in pop perfection and the thrill of two entwining guitars that cram so much melody and adrenaline into the music that their music sounds eternally joyous, is part of the heart of soul of their greatness.” - Louder Than War


"The fact that you could sing along to them whilst mashing up the pit and have your heart strings tugged by the band shows just how perfect they were.” - The Quietus
