Undertones1BampW

The Undertones, the legendary first wave Irish punks who earned seven top 40 UK singles and three top 20 UK albums between 1978 and 1981 and whose debut 7” Teenage Kicks was influential English DJ John Peel’s favourite single of ALL time will make their Australian debut this July.

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 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 disbanding in 1983.

Following the break-up, the members of The Undertones would go onto varying degrees of success (That Petrol Emotion, solo careers) before reforming in 1999; new singer Paul McLoone joining original members - guitarist and chief-songwriter John O’Neil, his brother Damian (guitar), bassist Michael Bradley and drummer Billy Doherty - headlining shows across the UK and Europe, appearing at the Glastonbury Festival in 2005, releasing two new albums - Get What You Need (2003) and Dig Yourself Deep (2007) - plus Teenage Kicks (A Best Of) and a top 30 chart hit on release in 2003.
