Stiff Little Fingers
For the first time in their 42 year career SLF will come to Hong Kong to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their seminal debut album – Inflammable Material.
On Feb 2nd 1979 STIFF LITTLE FINGERS unleashed their ground-breaking 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. 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.
A 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.
We are delighted to bring this seminal Punk band to play their first ever show in Hong Kong at This Town Needs as on February 11th, 2020 as part of the Spirit of '77 live series.
