Overview

Stiff Little Fingers

Stiff Little Fingers formed in 1977 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Their first album, Inflammable Material, made the world aware of The Troubles — the sectarian civil war happening in Northern Ireland at the time — and is generally considered to be one of the greatest punk albums of all time.

Along with the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks, and Sham 69 – they were there at the start of the punk rock movement and are still recording and touring today.

They wrote initially about their own lives, growing up at the height of The Troubles in Belfast, 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.
