Re-live your Teenage Kicks on Looe Beach
Re-live your Teenage Kicks in Looe when The Undertones take to the main stage on Saturday.
Formed in Derry in 1974, much of the earlier Undertones material drew influence from punk rock and new wave and included hits such as My Perfect Cousin, Jimmy Jimmy, Here Comes the Summer and Wednesday Week. The subject of two documentaries, The Undertones’ debut album is included in Q Magazine’s 100 Greatest British albums of all time.
Also, crossing the Irish Sea to Cornwall are Breaking Trad. Made up of Dónal Murphy from West Limerick (winner of numerous All-Ireland titles on both Button Accordion and Melodeon), Niall Murphy from South Armagh (All-Ireland Senior Fiddle Champion), and also multi-Instrumentalist Mike Galvin. Combing an accordion, fiddle and guitar their music has been described as ‘dazzling’, ‘unorthodox’ and ‘unique’.
Headlining the Harbour Marquee on the Saturday night at LMF are The Correspondents from South London. Listed in The Telegraph‘s top 10 Highlights of Glastonbury for two years running, The Correspondents will take you on a journey through the nether regions of electro and drum‘n’bass.
