More information about The Undertones tickets
The Undertones emerged from Derry in 1977, the result of five friends learning
how to play guitar and drums in time with someone singing.
Even by the standard of that decade Derry was not the rock and roll capital of
anywhere. With no live bands worth watching, they learned by listening to mail
order records, reading one of the few copies of NME that made it to Derry but
most of all from listening to John Peel’s wonderful show on BBC Radio One.
Practicing in their bedrooms eventually led to the band recording ‘Teenage

The Undertones signed with Sire Records and ‘Teenage Kicks’ was released followed by
further punkpop gems such as `Here Comes The Summer`, Jimmy Jimmy`, `My Perfect Cousin`,
`You’ve Got My Number (Why Don’t You Use It)’ and four LPs.
