TREAT OF THE WEEK - No.16
Here is a treat for you -   STIFF LITTLE FINGERS   - PLAY LOUD
SLF are a band from Northern Ireland, naturally influenced by the troubles surrounding them when growing up.
Singer and composer Jake Burns also quotes as a strong influence - Joe Strummer.
One of my favourite bands, hugely unrecognised, at least as good as The Buzzcocks (IMHO).
If you liked that, here are a few more:
Tin Soldiers   I couldn't find a decent live version of this song, one of my favourites, so this is the brilliant studio version with a spine-tingling chorus (PLAY LOUD), but an unconnected Final Fantasy video.
Johnny Was   - brilliant live version of a great, great song.
This was adapted from a Bob Marley song, reggae rock in the style of Clash, transferred from the streets of Jamaica to the streets of Belfast.
I have uploaded to YouTube   my own footage of 'Johnny Was'   from a 2005 SLF concert, but neither the pictures nor the sound is as good as this version.
I have also uploaded   my own footage of 'Barbed Wire Love'   from the same 2005 concert.
