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 Fingers were 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.
Now they”ve been taken up by our own Alan Burke who will be playing some SLF on Wednesday night, along with an interview with Jake Burns recorded on St Patrick”s Day last year.
There will also be a review of SLF”s
gig at the Barrowlands, which took place on Sunday night.
Join Alan Burke on Wednesday 20 March 10.00pm-midnight and Catch Up anytime.
