Product Description

It has been 33 years since The Undertones ripped a Derry-shaped hole in the public consciousness with Teenage Kicks, a perfectly crafted pop/punk-straddling tour de force and, notably, John Peel's favourite ever song. Though their debut set the bar impossibly high, the hits didn't stop there: True Confessions catalogues all of the band's singles from Teenage Kicks to Jimmy Jimmy; My Perfect Cousin to Here Comes The Summer and more, together with all their fantastic B-sides. In total, 13 singles were released by the band between September 1978 and May 1983. Four were top twenty hits, but surprisingly (given its truly seminal status) the most famous Undertones single ,Teenage Kicks, only staggered to the relatively modest heights of number 31. Not a lot of people know that. It is a more widely acknowledged fact, of course, that singles are the currency of pop. The Undertones understood that as well as any band. Enjoy individually or irresponsibly! 32 tracks including Teenage Kicks, Here Comes The Summer, Jimmy Jimmy, My Perfect Cousin, The Love Parade and many more… Remastered for superb sound quality Deluxe digipack includes 16-page full colour booklet with liner notes from Paul Lester and track-by-track comments from band member Michael Bradley.

Format: Audio CD
Thirty three years have passes since The Undertones erupted out of Derry, Northern Ireland, with 'Teenage Kicks', a song that has become a classic of its time. Originally on a demo that they sent to Radio 1 DJ, John Peel after it was rejected by the major record labels, it was the song they'll always be remembered for. Falsely lumped in with the punk movement, The Undertones were always more than just three chord no-marks, with their influences stretching back to the sixties and early seventies, as their pre-punk cover band days will attest.

Like a lot of bands they actually became more interesting as their commercial success waned, and by the time of their split in 1983, after four albums, they had moved onto creating some fabulous psych-tinged pop music. Singer Feargal Sharkey had some solo success before his poacher to gamekeeper conversion as a record industry mogul, with the guitar wielding brothers, John and Damian O'Neill taking their musical and songwriting skills of to That Petrol Emotion, who went on to release six albums.

However, 1999 saw The Undertones reforming, albeit with a new singer in the shape of radio presenter Paul McLoone. They've toured ever since and put out two albums of studio material, but it's the oldies that gets the punters coming back for more. Hence this release and their never ending tour. Now this has been out before, more than once in fact. So, if you already own "All Wrapped Up", "A + B Sides" or the previous release of "True Confessions", you won't really be needing this. But if, for some reason, you don't have it, then sort yourself out.

From the first snare crack of Teenage Kicks we are catapulted into the vortex that is teen-heartache...Feargal Sharkeys unique voice makes your legs still wobble at the knees,whilst the abrasive guitars give us the strength to stand tall as this wonderful song ploughs its own furrow into our hearts...Timeless.They carried on writing kitchen-sink musical dramas and traumas,with the odd nod towards da brudders Ramone,but this lot had a Derry edge and the wit to set them apart from the rest..Work,rest and play....After the fizzing dynamics of the early songs,the ideas are still there,witness the naive steps to Beatley psychedelia....unheard of and unusual at the time,that is attempted on Julie Ocean and Wednesday Week...The enthusiasm appears to have slightly waned on the final few tracks and as they are still producing classy pop,its best that they ended on a slight dip than in a hole..at least they didnt get the Human League in to advise them!

I ran across a greatest hits like double cassette or something of the UNDERTONES and didn't pick it up. I'm such a fan of theirs I shoulda. I got this years later and glad I did. There's like one song on it I hadn't heard from their albums and from a few 7"s of theirs I have.
To me the UNDERTONES are the greatest power pop band of all time. It's a combo of the strong guitars, the excellent song writing and maybe even Fergal Sharkey's unique voice. They make great records and I understand they do an amazing live show. I missed 'em the one time they played San Diego in like 1981. Bummer.
If you only own one UNDERTONES record, this would be the one. Real nice packaging too, showing all the covers of the various 7"s. I've been able to gladly hear their music for about 25 years now and it never gets old. Heck, I even like the softer material they did after the first two incredible albums. chris bct

This is a completely essential collection of one of the finest band's to emerge from the New Wave era in the late seventies.
I am also glad to hear that the band are back and doing an exclusive UK tour ending up at the Garage in London on the 16th April too!

Brilliant! The Undertones are so much more than their few well known hits. Almost impossible not to jump around and loudly join in with gusto!!!
