Stiff Little Fingers

So what can I say about their debut Inflammable Material? Well, it's pretty rusty and sharp. It reminds me of a war torn junkyard full of old metal that could easily give someone tetanus and this is a good quality. The two best songs here are the title track and Breakout because Jake really sounds like Elvis Costello with a throat fulla cigarettes and phleghm. Barbed Wire Love is another amazing song about star crossed lovers that ends with the hero's legs getting blown off. I can definitely picture them pissing around Belfast, kicking scattered trash, dodging the army, and avoiding barbed wire all while yearning for freedom
