The Undertones

& special guests: Pete Wylie & The Mighty Wah

Legendary punk-pop tunesmiths The Undertones emerged from Derry, Northern Ireland in 1974, and learned their trade by listening to mail order records and reading one of the few copies of NME that made it to Derry. Practicing in their bedrooms eventually led to them recording and releasing “Teenage Kicks” in 1978.

Press fast forward The Undertones present a glorious set of classic tracks taken from what are considered by many fans and critics to be some of the best punk albums of all time.

Pete Wylie & The Mighty Wah !

Pete Wylie, the acclaimed songwriter and Liverpudlian legend, has been making music under his own name and the many WAH! monikers since 1979.  

Pete began his career in the late 1970s in Liverpool, forming bands with Julian Cope, Ian McCulloch, Pete Burns, Ian Broudie, future Frankie Goes To Hollywood member Paul Rutherford and soon-to-be Siouxsie And The Banshees drummer Budgie. In 1979, Wylie adopted the WAH! name going through many incarnations including Wah!, The Mighty Wah!, Wah! Heat and Shambeko! Say Wah. Support from John Peel helped Pete/Wah! to gain nationwide attention. Over the years he has had a string of classic singles, including ‘The Story Of The Blues’, ‘Come Back’, ‘Sinful, ‘Seven Minutes to Midnight’ and later, the LFC anthem ‘Heart As Big As Liverpool’. He’s also performed with The Farm, Apollo 440, appeared with The KLF on their notorious first incarnation of ‘It’s Grim Up North’ and toured with the band Dead Men Walking featuring Glen Matlock of The Sex Pistols.

A proud Liverpudlian, Wylie’s defining song ‘Heart As Big As Liverpool’ is especially popular on Merseyside and with Liverpool Football Club supporters and is used in the official Hillsborough tribute video. In 2008, Pete performed at the opening ceremony of Liverpool’s European City of Culture tenure.
