Stiff Little Fingers

Inflammable Material - Vinyl Reissue

    Stiff Little Fingers are proud to release Inflammable Material. Originally released in 1979, this seminal record, printed on black vinyl, explores themes of teenage boredom and sectarian violence with an underlying insight into Northern Irish life during the peak of the tensions.

    Their punk rock aesthetic is authentic, with raw lyricism and harsh instrumentation. Containing the anthemic track ‘Alternative Ulster’, Stiff Little Fingers promote the ‘grab it and change it’ narrative.

    Stiff Little Fingers

    Inflammable Material

      You know you're in the presence of greatness right from the blazing opening bars of 'Suspect Device', a blast of barely produced heat whose fiercly non-aligned, anti-sectarian sentiment sets the tone for all that follows. Burning, often humourous, always articulate lyrics are delivered with scorn and passion via Jake Burns' sore throat growl over a lofi, almost live melodic punk backdrop, drawing inspiration not just from it's peers (mainly the Jam and The Clash) but also from folk and rock'n'roll. There are moments - many of them - of raw punk perfection on this album; it would be hard not to be swept along by the searing melody and heartfelt anger of 'Wasted Life' or the aching punky reggae of 'Johnny Was', their message undiluted by production values. Released in 1979, this album was Rough Trade's first, and what an introduction it was; if you want an album that captures the spirit and exhilaration of the punk/indie label scene of the time, you would struggle to do better than this.
