The Undertones release singles collection and teach fans to pogo

By April 5, 2011 August 15th, 2016 World

It’s been 33 years since The Undertones ripped a Derry-shaped hole in the public consciousness with ‘Teenage Kicks’, a perfectly crafted pop/punk-straddling tour de force and John Peel’s favourite ever song. Though their debut set the bar impossibly high, the hits didn’t stop with it: ‘True Confessions’ catalogues all of the band’s singles from ‘Teenage Kicks’ to ‘Jimmy Jimmy’; ‘My Perfect Cousin’ to ‘Here Comes The Summer’ and more, together with all their fantastic B-sides.

The collection includes a 16-page full colour booklet with liner notes from Paul Lester and track-by-track comments from band member Michael Bradley. The tracklisting is below. To celebrate the release of ‘True Confessions: Singles = A’s + B’s’ this week, the band have uploaded a instructional video teaching your average music fan “how to pogo” alongside their classic single ‘Teenage Kicks’.
