The Undertones - Here Comes The Summer

|

On this date in 1979, The Undertones released their fourth single, "Here Comes The Summer". It was backed by "One Way Love" and "Top Twenty". The A side appeared on their self-titled debut album. The B sides did not but were added as bonus tracks when the album was re-released on CD. The single reached the #34 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Derry, Northern Ireland punk/post-punk band lasted until 1983. Frontman Feargal Sharkey went solo and Sean and Damian O'Neill formed That Petrol Emotion. The Undertones re-formed in 1999 without Feargal.
