In March 1983, the Undertones released their fourth album, The Sin of Pride. This album, which drew inspiration from both soul and Motown, was produced by Mike Hedges, who had replaced Roger Bechirian as the Undertones' producer following the 1981 release of Positive Touch. Feargal Sharkey is known to have stated he had worked harder upon this album than at any point in his singing career to date, and that he considers this album the finest the Undertones ever produced . – Teenage Kicks – The Very Best of The Undertones.
The Undertones is the 1979 debut album by The Undertones. The album was recorded at Eden Studios in Acton, West London in January 1979 and was released on 13 May that year. The original release included just one single release: "Jimmy Jimmy" and an album version of "Here Comes The Summer", which was never released as a single. A re-released version of the album (housed in an alternate sleeve), was issued in October 1979.

As a vision, The Undertones were glorious in their mundanity. Out from a Derry beset with ‘the troubles’, they emerged into flamboyant Belfast looking every inch the effortless outsiders. Rather like The Fall’s parallel story in Manchester at the time, they played no head to sharpness of apparel. Not ragamuffin either, nor sleazily rockist. Just lads out from the sticks. And yet one glance at the cover of this exhaustive anthology is enough to confirm The Undertones as instant and eternal conveyors of the look and feel of their time.
