ALBUM REVIEW

Stiff Little Fingers

Stiff Little Fingers

To celebrate their 40th anniversary and the movement to a new label Stiff Little Fingers have released a brand new live album Best Served Loud – Live at Barrowland alongside the re-release of No Going Back from 2014. The albums will be released on CD, Vinyl, DVD, Blu-ray and 2LP.

 

Best Served Loud – Live at Barrowland celebrates the 25th anniversary of the band playing the venue on St Patricks Day. The album captures the best of the band while on stage, giving you the energy of the live shows. As pioneers of the punk rock movement in 1977 the band still hold on to those roots as they play through some of their greatest hits. Going all the back to their debut album ‘Inflammable Material’(1979) with ‘Alternative Ulster’ then spanning across the decades up to their most recently recorded album ‘Still Kicking’(2015). The album completely reflects the live shows this band has been putting on for 40 years.

 

The release of ‘No Going Back’ is a celebration of the Top 30 album from 2014 that let’s everyone know where punk rock originated. The album is full of those pure riffs that are heard in many new punk/ pop-punk bands. With fantastic songs such as ‘My Dark Places’ and ‘Guilty as Sin’ this truly is a pure punk album. With the re-release also comes some exclusive bonus tracks with the demos of songs such as ‘Throwing it all Away’, ‘Don’t Mind Me’ and ‘Trail of Tears’. If you’ve never treated yourself  to Stiff Little Fingers, this is a great place to start in your musical education.
