STIFF LITTLE FINGERS - Gotta Get Away

STIFF LITTLE FINGERS - 'Gotta Gettaway' / 'Bloody Sunday' (Rough Trade RT 015) May 1979

Belfast band Stiff Little Fingers quickly became one of my favourite bands for a year or so before I discovered The Byrds (and that changed everything)... Most of the hip kids at school were kiddie punks in the late 70s but it wasn't until January 1982 that I got to see SLF (as we all used to call them) play a gig and then, like waiting for a bus, two more gigs came around the corner in quick succession.
I'm a hoarder and throw nothing of importance or sentiment away and to this day I've still got the three ticket stubs from those three gigs at Newcastle City Hall.

Sadly, the venue was pulled down some years ago to make way for a fancy new cinema complex and a trendy wine bar. Still memories and the music and my punk records live on.
