Inflammable Material is planted in my head!



One of the very best and nowadays one of the most underrated LPs of the early British punk explosion came from Northern Ireland's legendary Stiff Little Fingers. Like The Undertones they were quickly ushered into a studio by John Peel, and soon released their devastatingly ace debut single Suspect Device / Wasted Life on the recently formed Rough Trade. Luckily they were no one hit wonders and it was soon followed by the even better Alternative Ulster. Since then they've released around 20 singles and ten albums. Lineups have changed but they're still creating great music and putting on good gigs today. Here are a few tracks from that original classic debut. Enjoy!
