The Undertones @ Triffid, 07.07.2016

Playing your biggest hit/best known song more than once during a show is never a good thing. When The Undertones nonchalantly play ‘Teenage Kicks’ as their tenth song, it’s perfect. It’s a true punk rock moment. Guitarist Damian O’Neill dedicates it to someone in the crowd before being reprimanded by singer Paul McLoone for the […]

Ex Hex – Rips (Merge)

Oh, yes. Hell yes. These gals are talkin’ my language. Two minute tunes, beefy riffs, catchy tunes, handclaps. A local critic penned the quip “Thin Lizzy all up in yr grill” and I concur. To an extent. Can ya feel it? The heart and soul and power [pop] of rock and roll at its diamond […]

Song of the day – 200: The Distractions

It’s great! Great, I tell you! None of the poignancy has been diminished by the passing years, only increased.

Song of the day – 96: Patrik Fitzgerald

To celebrate the fact my formative influence Patrik Fitzgerald has befriended me on Facebook, and was even nice enough to “like” a recent Thin Kids video, I figured it’s long overdue that I pay tribute to him here. This particular song I’m posting had a major effect on me when I first heard it back […]

Song of the day special – 84: recording ‘Teenage Kicks’

Like it says on the card. Here we have a video showing The Undertones recording ‘Teenage Kicks’. Zowee, baby! I’m a little confused as to the dating, though. Surely, the single came out in 1978.
