In the mid seventies, punk rock was growing and in the North of Ireland, the group Stiff Little Fingers was formed when the band members caught The Clash at a Belfast show in 1977. The rest is punk rock history. SLF's sound is raw, brash, political, and pure. They became fixtures of the UK's punk rock scene, joining acts like The Clash, Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, The Jam, and others in defining a new and enduring genre.

Here is one of our favorite songs from their catalog: "Suspect Device." In this video, the band performs this punk rock anthem on an Ulster TV show. What is even more amazing is that the band is still touring, 35 years later.
