Legendary Northern Ireland punks Stiff Little Fingers 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 Fingers were at the forefront of the punk movement.
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, a record that became their signature SLF style, with lyrics that mixed the personal and political, music that combined the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and a delivery of honesty and commitment.
Their live shows continue to be special events of energy and power and their studio albums demonstrate their passion and anger.
