Crisis Of Mine - The Undertones - Positive Touch (Vinyl, LP, Album)

  1. Although I have the originals all stacked up on vinyl, it was a treat to hear these little beauties once again, although without the pain of having to change the records every 20 mins or so. The Undertones were always the prime architects of the 3 minute punk/pop song and the first two albums are well represented here/5(19).
  2. Feargal Sharkey's quavering tenor has always been the make-or-break point for potential Undertones fans, and "Crisis of Mine" is one of the litmus tests. On this nervous, jumpy tune, Sharkey's bag of vocal tics is full to bursting: his Northern Irish accent is almost impenetrable on some lines, especially the bridge, his vibrato-laden tone is almost at the point of self-parody on the verses.
  3. This crisis of mine. I don't feel fine In this crisis of mine I don't feel fine. What's wrong with us little girl? Dreaming in our own stupid world Recurring again and again Our face on the face of a friend. A drop in the ocean, making us sweat Hear another notion, shaking me yet This crisis of mine.
  4. This attracted a deal from Sire, which released the band's debut LP in April That Autumn, The Undertones earned kudos as a support act on the Clash's American tour. A second LP, Hypnotised, was recorded and released in , followed in by their first LP for EMI, Positive Touch.

  6. Crisis of Mine Lyrics: What's wrong with us little girl? / Unsafe in our own stupid world / We're always catching some train / Careering us back where we came / A drop in the ocean, making us sweat.

  8. The tight Beatlesque harmonies and Feargal Sharkey’s vocals aligned them with Split Enz, positive praise in these parts. Had they slowed down the pace, released a few more You’re Welcomes, they might have gotten their I Got You moment. But there’s no point lamenting what might have been, since Positive Touch is a nearly perfect album.
