Rocking the Casbah

The Undertones: All By Myself


By May of 1977 The Undertones has become the band to see at The Casbah, in the Irish band's hometown of Derry. By mid-year their set would include future UK Top 40 hit  and John Peel all time favorite song"Teenage Kicks", but an eight song bootlegged set shows the band covering the likes of the Velvet Underground (There She Goes Again) , The Heartbreakers (All By Myself) and The Ramones (Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue). They're not yet the Undertones we would come to know and  love, but Feargal Sharkey has already got the helium voice happening and the O'Neill brothers rock out like mad.
