Stiff Little Fingers
BBC Live In Concert (rsd 22)
Stiff Little Fingers "BBC Live In Concert" features two high energy performances from these very influential Northern Irish punk rockers, recorded for the BBC.
Fronted by singer and guitarist Jake Burns, the first LP of this 2LP set kicks off with "Roots, Radicals, Rockers & Reggae" from their "Go For It" album, recorded at London’s Paris Theatre in 1981, a venue used for many classic BBC In Concerts. The second LP features an equally raucous show captured at Norwich’s University of East Anglia in the UK in front of a highly appreciative crowd. Recorded a year after the Paris Theatre show, the 1982 set starts with "Tin Soldiers" and ends with "Gotta Getaway."
