Formed in Derry, Northern Ireland in 1975, The Undertones became renowned for combining lyrical invention and musical flair with intelligent simplicity. Their anthemic Teenage Kicks, much loved by John Peel, is one of the most influential songs of the post-punk era.
To mark the 40th anniversary of their debut release, The Undertones now present a glorious set of classic tracks taken from what is considered by many to be one of the best punk albums of all time, adding to them a whole bucketful of their iconic guitar pop hits & anthems.
Special guest Neville Staple, also known as The Original Rudeboy, is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice.
Neville Staple’s 40 year career in the music business is well documented, from the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials & FunBoy3 in the late ’70s and ’80s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the ’90s up to the present day.
See them perform at the 02 Academy in Leeds on May 10th.
