Stiff Little Fingers: Song by Song

Stiff Little Fingers: Song by Song




Formed in Belfast in 1977, Stiff Little Fingers rose from the ashes of Highway Star to make an immediate impact on the music world. Their first single, the self-financed indie-chart smash 'Suspect Device', was played by John Peel every night for over a week, while their debut LP, Inflammable Material, was the Rough Trade label's first album pressing. With lyrics that melded the personal with the political and music that combined the energy of punk with infectious hooks, SLF continued to turn out anthem after anthem, amassing a legion of faithful followers along the way, despite a series of line-up and record-label changes in the '80s and '90s. In Stiff Little Fingers - Song By Song, founder member and frontman Jake Burns talks to Alan Parker, a dedicated life-long fan who has worked with the group for over four years. Looking back over the Fingers' 26-year assault on music lovers' sensitivities, Jake reveals the inspiration behind some of the most influential and meaningful material of the last three decades.
