About this deal

I enjoy very few albums as much as I enjoy Inflammable Material, the debut, and all around best album from Northern Irelands Stiff Little Fingers.

In 1987, Burns reformed the band with McMordie, Cluney and Taylor. When McMordie left in 1990, he was replaced on bass by Bruce Foxton, previously of The Jam, though McMordie rejoined in 2006. The current incarnation of SLF, which still tours, includes Burns, bassist Ali McMordie, guitarist Ian McCallum and drummer Steve Grantley. Stiff Little Fingers recorded the single on Saturday 4 February 1978 at Downtown Radio studios. The release of the record required a record/publishing company and Rigid Digits was formed with the band members and two managers all owning equal shares. "Suspect Device" was released on 17 March 1978. [1] [2] Joe certainly was an inspiration but the other huge inspiration in my life around that time was Gordon Ogilvie. He encouraged us to write more and more about our own lives and having that sort of validation from someone who wanted to write with me made a huge difference. Gordon gave me the finished lyric of Suspect Device on the second day I met him and said “do you think you can do something with this?” I’ve said before it was like a ‘60’s Sci Fi shows where the rest of the room disappears and all I could see was that piece of paper and I knew exactly what I could do with it. It needed trimming as it was something like 16 verses long. I don’t think Gordon had grasped the idea of the 3-minute punk song at that stage. So we put Suspect Device together and I’d written Wasted Life around the same time so it was lift off for us.To attend a Stiff Little Fingers live show is to witness first hand the potent reaction as band meet audience, resulting in pogo-pyrotechnics that are as vigorous now as at any time during their career. This is not a “take it or leave it” band; this is a band that has forged an undying bond with their fiercely loyal following which seems to grow ever deeper as the years go by.

Burns put a tune to the lyrics and "Suspect Device" was born. [2] Footage of the group performing "Suspect Device" at Belfast's Pound Club on 17 January 1978 - the first time the group played the song live - appeared on an Ulster TV programme It Makes You Want to Spit about the emergence of punk in Belfast. [1] [3] a b c d e Bailie, Stuart (2018). Trouble Songs - Music And Conflict In Northern Ireland. Bloomfield Press. ISBN 978-1-5272-2047-8.Another record that accuses SLF of being Clash copyists. The Clash wrote a song called Complete Control about the meddlings of a selfish record company. So did the Sex Pistols write a song about the anti heroics of EMI. So why cant SLF write a song about a record company, their record company ironically Rough Trade. Very fast punky beat as fresh as it is now than when the day it was recorded all of 30 years ago. Punk classic could and should have been a single maybe the record company were scared of this anti record company baiting. Strange thing at the time both factions need each other in recording market. Betrayal being the buzz word for an untruthful record company lying about false promises. In 2006, original bassist Ali McMordie returned to the fold, and the line-up has settled to the best ever; Jake Burns on lead vocals and guitar, Ali McMordie on bass, Ian McMallun on guitar, and Steve Grantley on drums. Though focused on their new material, they always play the old favorites at gigs. Jake said, "You have to strike a balance. The difficulty with a band like ourselves is to try not make it sound like a cabaret band. Obviously, it'd be very easy to go, 'Hey, here's another old one you may remember.' A lot of the old songs the audience greet like old friends. I suppose it's the same as any band that's been around for any length of time. And yes, there are nights that we don't particularly want to play "Alternative Ulster" or "Suspect Device" because we've heard them 'til they're coming out our ears. But there's always the possibility that somebody out there has never seen the band before, never heard them."

A great slow opener to a nexus of massive in your face simple punk guitar chords. All there is to live for estranged teenagers is to be a martyr for an impossible cause in an ongoing political confusion, hostility and turmoil. Yet, violence has to be questioned what a waste of life, this song is driven with powerful guitar riffs and guitar solo that are a highlight of side one of the album. Jakes sorethroat vocals must have been painful after the recording at Spaceward Studios by the leafy streets of Cambridge.
