A Tribute to the Punk & New Wave Music of 1977-1982

The Undertones - Discography and Biog

The Undertones - Cher O Bowlies

The best band ever to come from Northern Ireland, the Undertones took youthful adoration for glam-rock and gave it the stripped-down simplicity and energy of punk to create truly wonderful albums of pop/rock (and, toward the end, soul) with a difference. The band’s body of work reveals rapid creative growth; each album clearly shows a different stage in its development. The group's 1983 demise, as unavoidable as it was disappointing, resulted from a lack of sustained commercial success and the inability to shake the public's first impression of them as an Irish Ramones.
