While Stiff Little Fingers have put records out for the last 15 years, this is the first disc to really equal what the band was doing in its heyday (1981-82). SLF’s brand of punk is many shades poppier than the Clash or Husker Du, but it always contained an edginess that newer bands don’t have. The best track is a touching yet raunchy ode to Joe Strummer (“Strummerville”). It’ll leave a Doc Marten-sized lump in your throat long after it fades out to a chorus of “clash, clash...clash city rockers.”
