Stiff Little Fingers – 41 Years Of Inflammable Material Tour

Stiff Little Fingers – 41 Years Of Inflammable Material Tour

With Sold Out shows on their last Australian & New Zealand Tour, SLF return in February to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their seminal debut album – Inflammable Material thanks to DRW Entertainment and Metropolis Touring.

On Feb 2nd 1979 STIFF LITTLE FINGERS unleashed their groundbreaking debut album upon a confused musical world barely ready for the incendiary onslaught of passion and politics that positioned SLF right at the forefront of the punk movement.

Formed in Belfast, Northern Ireland, SLF wrote about their own lives growing up at the height of The Troubles. Preceded by the single “Suspect Device” which John Peel played every night, “Inflammable Material” burst into the UK Top 20 – the first ever debut album to do so on an independent label.

We don’t play a lot of love songs

This was an album of anger and frustration, full of lyrics melding the personal and political, music that combines the punk energy with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment.

STIFF LITTLE FINGERS live show continues to be a special event of energy and power and the band are more in demand than ever. Bad Religion and Rancid have both credited SLF as a major influence. As well as Inflammable Material classics “Suspect Device”, “Johnny Was”, “Alternative Ulster”, “Wasted Life”, “Barbed Wire Love” and “State Of Emergency”, fans can anticipate anthemic favourites such as “Gotta Gettaway”, “Tin Soldiers”, “At The Edge” and “Nobodys Hero”.

Chatting to Whitesnake and ex Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, is like catching up with an old friend for a good tête-à-tête over a cuppa. “ It’s like being in the old country I assure”, he booms down the phone in his thick Yorkshire lilt, as he’s looking at the Sierra Mountains.BY...
