Stiff Little Fingers - Back Against the Wall (2001) Retail CD
An unusual career overview spanning 20 years and consisting entirely of album tracks, Back Against The Wall is presumably intended to prove that there's a lot more to veteran Belfast punks Stiff Little Fingers than such indefatigable politico-punk classics as "Suspect Device", and "Alternative Ulster". Frankly, there isn't. Tellingly, nearly a quarter of these tracks are taken from 1979's Inflammable Material, the bands' wholeheartedly recommended and snarlingly corrosive debut album on which Jake Burns and co addressed the grievances of life in the troubled province of Ulster (sectarian prejudicemore… on "White Noise" and "State Of Emergency", for example) to a degree which made The Clash look like a wishy-washy political focus group. Furthermore, this record surely influenced the sound of Nirvana. Had Stiff Little Fingers stopped right there then we'd now be talking about them in near legendary terms. Alas, they didn't. They turned into Northern Ireland's equivalent of The Alarm, churning out competent but unspectacular protest-pop fodder ("Half A Life Away", "Hope Street") to the St Patrick's Night knees-up masses. --Kevin Maidment
