The Undertones

Without a doubt one of the best punk bands ever: the quintet from Northern Ireland. The Undertones are among those representatives of the genre - and let's be honest: many aren't - who have achieved more than a few outstanding singles. But even the grandiose “Teenage Kicks”, which belongs to the punk canon, showed in 1978 what the genius of the Undertones still consists of today: They do not block themselves out from other, supposedly more commercial pop influences. Since the reunion in 1999, two albums have been released that do not have to hide behind the great achievements of the early phase. And with Paul McLoone, a worthy successor to founding member and singer Feargal Sharkey was found.
