I Could Be A Soldier....
The one word that springs to mind when I think of Stiff Little Fingers debut release is integrity. There are very few albums from that era that still retain the same power that they had at the time. Angry, passionate lyrics, Jake Burns rasping vocals and just bloody great songs that make Inflammable Material one of the essential punk albums. Raw, committed and delivered with such anger and sheer vitriol based out of personal experience with no compromise. This album more than almost any other sums up everything that was worthy about the punk era.
