Feargal Sharkey emerged from Derry in 1976. They recorded their first single “Teenage Kicks” in 1978 and when BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel received a copy, he liked it so much he played it twice in a row on his radio show .
The band signed with Sire Records and over the next five years crafted further pop gems such as “Here comes the Summer”, “Jimmy Jimmy”,”Wednesday week”, “You’ve got my number (why dont you use it)” “My perfect Cousin” & and recorded four highly acclaimed LP’s before Feargal Sharkey left the group to pursue a solo career in 1983.
They reconvened in 1999 without Feargal Sharkey to once again perform their two minute, three and a half chord songs to a new generation . Fellow Derryman Paul Mc Loone replaced Sharkey on vocals and his vocal prowess and electric onstage presence soon convinced any doubters that he was more than capable of doing the job.
