David Corio recalls: “I’d met Feargal as he left a rehearsal room on Holloway Road in north London late one evening. I shot some portraits of him under a street light as I didnt have any lights or flashgun with me. It occurred to me as we passed a launderette that this was the best lit location in sight and thats how this photo happened. It was a quiet session as Feargal didnt speak much and I tend to go with the subjects mood.
The Undertones were a great pop punk band from Derry in Northern Ireland and Feargals distinctive quavering voice made them stand out. The bands first album The Undertones featuring the classic song Teenage Kicks John Peels favourite song of all time had been released not long before I took this picture.”
