Terri Hooley, founder of record label and shop Good Vibrations, is responsible for bands such as The Undertones making their mark on the international music scene.

Terri Hooley, founder of record label and shop Good Vibrations, is responsible for bands such as The Undertones making their mark on the international music scene. After playing 'Teenage Kicks' on BBC national radio John Peel became a big supporter of Good Vibrations. The label celebrated its thirty-year anniversary in April 2008. A biopic based on the life of Terri Hooley began filming in 2009.

The success of The Undertones was a moment of triumph for Terri Hooley, the culmination of a dream that began when he borrowed £40 to open a small record shop in Belfast in 1978. It was also the start of a turbulent and colourful career in the music industry. Hooleygan is Terri's remarkable story, from his tireless commitment to local bands and the chequered history of Good Vibrations to his volatile encounters with the mainstream music industry, his run-ins with Bob Dylan and John Lennon, drinking binges with Phil Lynott, and his resilience in the face of setbacks such as arson, bankruptcy, bomb blasts, and attacks by racketeers.

A fully illustrated no-holds-barred story of music and mayhem by a man who has been compared to Tony Wilson and Malcolm McLaren.
