Inflammable Material

Stiff Little Fingers will be at Slim's Friday June 16th.

I still like SLF because of the social and political angst. And it's really good punk rock.

I wonder what this band meant to people in Belfast living with 'The Troubles' in the late 70's? Did you have to be Catholic to like SLF?

I was there in 1976. The British Army were on the streets, and the police carried military rifles. I'd get stopped and searched at least once a day by the army, and they weren't messing around. It was a very dangerous and exciting place for a teenager.
