True Confessions time - I have only played the Undertones once before on CCM and that was of course Teenage Kicks taken from some compilation or other.
It is not because I have not wanted to play the Derry urchins who came from nowhere with the energy of youth to produce some quite brilliant pop songs.
No it is because of Feargal Sharkey.
Why so you ask. Well I'll leave it to our dear friend and international man of letters Dirk to explain as only he can.
