The Undertones - It's Going To Happen!


On this date in 1981, The Undertones released their eighth single, "It's Going To Happen!". It was backed by "Fairly In The Money". The A side appeared on their third album, Positive Touch. The B side was a non-LP track that was added to the album as a bonus when the album was re-released on CD. The single climbed to the #18 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Derry, Northern Ireland punk/post-punk band disbanded in 1983. They had seven top 40 U.K. singles during their time together. They re-formed in 1999 but lead singer Feargal Sharkey did not.
