Top 50 Debut Albums - No.6 "Inflammable Material" Stiff Little Fingers (1979)

Time for something a little more Punk ...

Stiff Little Fingers don't always get the recognition they deserve but they've become one of my favourite bands. They were as noisey and energetic as any of their Punk contemporaries but in Jake Burns and (non-band member) Gordon Ogilvie had a pair of truly great songwriters. They mined a seam of Punk that combined a catchy sound similar to The Undertones with the harder edged noise of bands like the Pistols & The Damned.

Inflammable Material is my favourite SLF album and is simply perfect from start to finish.
