The Undertones - Beautiful Friend


On this date in 1982, The Undertones released their ninth single, "Beautiful Friend". It was backed by "Life's Too Easy". The B side appeared on their third album, Positive Touch, though it was a remixed version. The A side was a non-LP track. Both single sides were added as bonus tracks when the album was re-released on CD. The Derry, Northern Ireland punk/post-punk band disbanded in 1983 when singer Feargal Sharkey left. He went solo and Sean and Damian O'Neill formed That Petrol Emotion. The Undertones re-formed in 1999 minus Feargal Sharkey.
