About this product
- DescriptionMichael Bradley joined his school friend's group in Derry, Northern Ireland in the summer of 1974. They had two guitars and singer. Four years later the Undertones recorded 'Teenage Kicks', John Peel's favourite record, and became one of the most fondly remembered UK bands of the post punk era. Sticking to their punk rock principles, they signed terrible deals, made great records and had a wonderful time. They broke up in 1983 when they realised there was pot of gold at the end of the rock and roll rainbow. His story is a bitter-sweet, heart-warming and occasionally droll tale of unlikely success, petty feuding and playful mischief during five years of growing up in the music industry. Wiser but t much richer, Michael became a bicycle courier in Soho after the Undertones split. Sixty miles a day, fresh air, responsibilities, he writes. Sometimes I think it was the best job I ever had. It wasn't, of course.
- Author BiographyMichael 'Mickey' Bradley continues to play bass with the Undertones, who reformed in 1999. He is also a radio producer with BBC Radio Foyle.
