Quick facts about Undertones
The Undertones are an Northern Irish punk band formed in Derry, Northern Ireland in 1975. The original band consisted of: * Feargal Sharkey (lead vocals),
* John O’Neill (guitar),
* Damian O’Neill (guitar, keyboards and vocals),
* Michael Bradley (bass and vocals), and
* Billy Doherty (drums). John O’Neill was the original main song writer, with his brother Damian and Mickey Bradley writing in various solo & combined variations for most of the remainder. Sharkey’s power pop tenor was distinctive, and the band regarded a tight ensemble. By 1977 they were performing their own three-chord pop punk material influenced by Nuggets-type material and Ramones, and in 1978 released their debut four-song EP Teenage Kicks on Good Vibrations. It became a hit with support from DJ John Peel, who considered that EP’s title song (Teenage Kicks) his all-time favourite. The song has been covered by many including boyband Busted (at the 2003 Brit Awards), American group The Raconteurs, Swedish band Sahara Hotnights and French band Nouvelle Vague. The original band released four studio albums: * The Undertones (1979)
* Hypnotised (1980)
* Positive Touch (1981)
* The Sin of Pride (1983). Falling sales linked to their changing musical direction and tensions within the band, leading to their split in 1983. Learn more about Undertones
