Hello, Michael Bradley here.

I've written a book which is now available.

It's a dark thriller which exposes the corruption at the very heart of our society.

No it's not. 

It's my account of being in The Undertones, from first hanging around in O'Neill's house to the break up with Feargal in 1983. 

I've called it Teenage Kicks : My Life As An Undertone, getting in quick before anyone else uses that title. Like Stephen King. 

My older brother Martin has read it and gives it his approval.

I hope you like it.  

If you go to any of the forthcoming Undertones shows, you will not be asked questions about what was in it. 



You can hear Michael talking about the book here.

Here Comes The Drummer!

The Billy Doherty Ceili Band

Billy has started a Ceili band with some other musicians from Derry, they´re playing “Ceili” versions  of the Undertones songs plus some trad numbers and plan to “Ceilify” some other well known tunes in the near future. Their first performance was as support to The Undertones at the recent  The Button Factory show in Dublin.

The "Billy Doherty Ceili Band" are can be booked for live shows via:

YouTube-view their first performance at The Button Factory.

Damian O'Neill released a solo single on 10th November 2014.

'Trapped in a cage' c/w 'Love Makes The World Go Round' on 7" vinyl only on Overground Records is a limited edition of 500 copies. (cat. no. Over 140).

Both songs are selected from 'Re-energize' a musical play written by renowned Belfast playwright Gary Mitchell. Music by Damian with lyrics by Gary.

'Re-energize' was commissioned by Derry’s Playhouse Theatre for Derry City of Culture 2013 and was performed there and at the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.

Damian: "Re-energize is a gritty play about 4 downtrodden individuals from Belfast who, now middle aged and on hard times, decide against all the odds to reform their old punk band and in effect get a 'second chance'. Initially John and I were commissioned to write 8 pieces of music to lyrics by Gary Mitchell to be performed by the actors live on stage. John wrote 3 songs, I wrote 4 and we co-wrote one. The songs went down really well so I decided to take things further and record 5 of the songs myself in a studio playing everything apart from the drums. I think the 2 songs on the single turned out best."
