2009 Deluxe Edition of the Irish Punk band's brilliant debut album, released to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original album's release. This excellent reissue features the original 14 track album plus an additional 17 audio tracks (b-sides, radio sessions) and an enhanced video for 'Teenage Kicks'. The Undertones debut release - and particularly 'Teenage Kicks' - has long been regarded as one of the purest expressions of teenage Punk Pop. As bassist Michael Bradley says there was 'No plot, no theme, no parodies of any genre'. The Undertones 1979 debut is an off-the-cuff collection from five Derry kids with nothing to lose.
The brilliance of this collection is that it combines the standard Brit-punk anthems by the Sex Pistols, the Damned, the Buzzcocks, and Stiff Little Fingers with other great songs that typify the variety and range of punk-era independent music from both sides of the Atlantic. The songs are so well chosen that the punk aesthetic is further revealed by the inclusion of songs that characterize pub rock, new wave, and other related genres. The usual punk suspects ("New Rose," "Anarchy in the UK") are all here, along with many other treasures: Dr. Feelgood's "Milk and Alcohol", Devo's "Mongoloid," Jonathan Richman's "Roadrunner," Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer," and Television's "Marquee Moon." The less commonly anthologized punk selections are inspired, too: the Ruts' "Babylon Is Burning," Generation X's "Ready Steady Go," and X-Ray Spex's "Identity," along with the seminal "Sheena is a Punk Rocker." The conception of the genre is expanded further to include Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, XTC, Joe Jackson, the Pretenders, the Tubes, and Blondie, and their presence overcomes the tendency for boring repetition on a very long collection.

“Covert” is the operative word here…and also wherein lies the magic. Texting is an art…well at least it should be.Too many men fuck this art up out of ignorance more than anything else.The greatest weapon in your arsenal when trying to hook up with girls through text, will have been your ability to get a girl thinking sex without explicitly causing this in any way that is super obvious.
