3. The Undertones-The Undertones
I could have chosen any number of Ulster punk records that had a huge impact on me (Rudi-Big Time, SLF-Inflammable Material) but i’ll go with this one for now as my Gran bought it for me! She’d heard i was into this thing called punk and though she didn’t approve she went into a shop and asked for a good punk album and ended up giving me this as a present.
The opening salvo of ‘Family Entertainment’, ‘Girls don’t Like It’,’Male Model’ and ‘I Gotta Getta’ is as exciting as it gets. I also think ‘Jimmy Jimmy’ is one of the most underrated pop songs ever.
