Stiff Little Fingers

“If ever there was a place on this gobshite planet to incubate good punk rock, that place is Belfast. And sure enough, the Northern Ireland capital gifted us with one of the greatest punk bands of all time, Stiff Little Fingers. Rather than wallow in the provocative-for-provocation’s-sake nihilism of their English counterparts, Stiff Little Fingers drew from first-hand experience of their hometown’s Troubles, imbuing their frustration with their island’s inherent, elegiac tunefulness.... And the Fingers are still soldiering on, with original singer/guitarist Jake Burns and bassist Ali McMordie joined by guitarist Ian McCallum and drummer Steve Grantley. Like their peers, Stiff Little Fingers give a two-fingered salute to the hypocrisy of the world, but unlike others, their music locates hope amid the rage. ” --Portland Mercury
