Playing Time:

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!
