Stiff Little Fingers

Presented by eastside events
Stiff Little Fingers were formed in 1977 in Belfast, Ireland. Along with the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Sham 69, Stranglers, et al – Stiff Little Fingerswere at the forefront of the punk movement.
They wrote initially about their own lives, growing up at the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland, in songs like Suspect Device and Wasted Life. In November of '77, they released those two songs on their own Rigid Digits label, and sent a copy to BBC Radio One DJ John Peel, who started playing it every night.
These were the first of what became SLF's signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and delivery that rings of honesty and commitment.
In 1979 they became the first band ever to hit the UK top 20 album charts on an independent label with their debut Inflammable Material. The album chronicles the band's anger and frustration and calls on youth to create their own reality.
