CD Review: An Introduction To The Undertones

As the Punk movement evolved into New Wave in the late 70s one of the groups to be embraced by adults and youngsters alike was Derry’s The Undertones.

John Peel may have declared Teenage Kicks as his all-time favourite record, yet it was undoubtedly the aggressive beat combined with comical lyricism on My Perfect Cousin that struck a chord in the playground when discussing new records.

This release recalls that era with raw energy  and passion, taking the listener through essential hits including Jimmy Jimmy, I Know A Girl and Here Comes The Summer from the Feargal Sharkey era of the band and a fabulous accompanying DVD recalling classic TV performances and a sentimental musical journey for John Peel.

Certainly has the edge on other compilations.
