The laegendary John Peel interviews the legendary band, The Undertones, providing a thorough history and plenty of archive footage.

★★★★★

Radio DJ John Peel - who had the title song of this documentary played at his funeral - carries out the interviews in this matey chronicle of Derry punk band The Undertones.

It's a thorough history (even Feargal Sharkey chips in, although separately from the other band members), with extensive archive footage and a selection of scratchy images from the peak of "The Troubles" to give it a more cinematic touch.

They were punk's best singles band, and they remain as sweetly down-to-earth as ever.

Thorough and earnestly executed documentary.
