It's time to turn up the volume a bit today with veteran Northern Irish punk rockers Stiff Little Fingers who appear on these pages for the first time.
When putting X-Ray Spex back in the Punk/New Wave section Inflammable Material their seminal debut album from 1979 caught my eye and I thought it was time to give it an airing.
The more astute of you will point out that 78RPM is not on Inflammable Material and you will be right but it is a bonus track on the CD version I have along with an interview with Jake Burns.
They are still going strong and play Glasgow's Barrowland every St Patrick's Day -a gig I know that Drew has attended on a number of occasions.
A splendid racket altogether.
