On Record Store Day (April 21st), BMG Records will release The Undertones – Singles, a 13 x 7” vinyl box set featuring every single released by the band between 1978-1983. Currently commemorating the 40th anniversary of their classic debut single, ‘Teenage Kicks’, The Undertones are one of the best bands to have come out of Northern Ireland. Taking youth adoration from glam-rock and giving it the stripped-down simplicity and energy of punk, the band created 3-minute punk-pop gems that sound as vital today as they did 40 years ago.

The UndertonesSingles features such memorable songs as ‘Teenage Kicks’, ‘Jimmy Jimmy’, ‘Here Comes The Summer’ and ‘My Perfect Cousin’, all cut from original analogue tape transfers on 40g vinyl and includes the original single artwork replicated, a ‘Teenage Kicks’ original poster single and additional poster with photos and notes by The Undertones along with track by track comments from bassist Michael Bradley.

“The collective attitude of The Undertones to the magical power and influence of the humble 45rpm 7” single was always one of total reverence and respect. It really did matter. Back then in our Undertone world, a great single was even more important than the LP it helped promote and getting on Top of the Pops was the ultimate accolade that we were doing it right. And if you didn’t make it on TOTP, then there was always the next single,” says guitarist Damian O’Neill. “Listening again to these 13 A and B sides, I hear a great pop group who tried their best to be true to themselves and ultimately didn’t disappoint.”
