Stiff Love

I've had the Stiff Little Fingers LP Inflammable Material since Reagan's first term in office. It was given a prominent placement in the John Cusack film High Fidelity with the inevitable punch line delivered by a character in the film: "Is that the new Green Day?"

That cracks me up and is just a small part of what I love about that entire film. I dragged the LP out last night for a SWD (spinning while drunk) and was amazed all over again. Thanks to YouTube, I've now seen video of the band for the first time ever. I don't think I had ever seen pictures of the band, much less video! And it snags my jeans with barbed wire love. God, 1979 was a great year.
