Stiff Little Fingers

Punk,Rock

Belfast's Stiff Little Fingers were formed in 1977 and mentioned in the same breaths as The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Sham 69 and The Stranglers in the first wave of British punk. Legendary DJ John Peel broke their debut single, "Suspect Device"/"Wasted Life," nationwide, and in 1979, their debut album, "Inflammable Material," was the first indie album to break the UK top 20. They broke up in early 1983, but frontman Jake Burns and bassist Ali McMordie came together for some reunion shows in 1987. Burns continued with SLF after that, this time with Bruce Foxton from The Jam on bass. McMordie returned to the band in 2006; he and Burns are joined by guitarist Ian McCallum and drummer Steve Grantley.
