The Undertones: Live at the Casbah, 1977


This bootleg came from a Frictional source, whose Goal was to remain anonymous. As well, said source did acknowledge that he probably got it from the no-longer-available-but-widely-missed blog, King Rocker Rock On. No matter the blessed source, this is a fascinating bootleg of The Undertones (more here) in their formative days, still covering, Johnny Thunders, Roky Erickson, The Ramones and The Stooges.


(Okay this video is from '78 but it still gets the band at it's brashest stage.)

And since we've been on a historical videos kick, here's a mini-doc on Terri Hooley, founder of Good Vibrations Records, who first signed the band.




Let us know what you think about these savage young Undertones in the COMMENTS!

    A word for The Undertones, would be taken as encouragement to continue the flow of rarities.

  9. this should be good. I am a big fan of the Undertones but have never heard any live material. Their first two records are perfect in my book. Thanks!
