Inflammable Material

Just a quick one. The day after Boxing Day me and my brother-in-law (collects rap and hip-hop) ventured to this record shop we both occasionally go to in the middle of nowhere. It's a weird set up, there's nothing else in the old industrial town it sits in other than a big supermarket and what can only be described as a 'massive' second hand record shop. It's really good for picking up some shelf fillers and older stuff on the cheap.
I picked up some 80's metal and some punk stuff I hadn't heard for years with no intention of blogging about any of them, however as I've been listening to this quite a lot I figured I'd throw it up.

Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material
I hadn't heard this for going on 15 years I bet. I'd forgotten how good it is. The songs on here still sound urgent and angry like they did in 1979. Suspect Device, Alternative Ulster, White Noise etc
When you buy a record second hand especially from this time period they can be pretty beaten up but the record is pristine and obviously been looked after as it's been taken out of the original insert sleeve and put into a polylined one. Nice.
I believe this is an original pressing but I could be wrong.


  1. Shit dude that is AWESOME! Love SLF and this is one of my favorite albums by them!!!

  2. Yeah buddy. As I said before I'd forgotten how good it is.

  3. Too funny. I've had their Nobody's Heroes CD for a while, but I was out a couple of weekends ago and picked up a used CD copy of Inflammable Material. It was the first time I'd heard it. Good stuff!
