Stiff Little Fingers - At The Edge

Stiff little Fingers fifth single was 'At The edge' and in my opinion it was five perfect songs in a row. This single could of effortlessly sat on their brilliant debut album 'Inflammable Material (see link below). The b-side consists of two live encores which each song 'Running Bear' and 'White Christmas' are 50/50 in terms of a standard rock cover/then a punk cover, both recorded live at Troon & Aberdeen in 1979.

I love the comic book art cover, which now reminds me of an episode of 'Heroes'.

Band: Stiff Little Fingers
Label: Chrysalis
Year: 1980
1. At The Edge
2. Silly Encores: Running Bear
3. Silly Encores: White Christmas

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

If you want all their singles (b-sides as well) then get this:

All the Best
All the Best
If you want their best albums then get these two, they are classics:

Great single. Love all the 1st 6 SLF singles. Cheers Gary. Trying to find that ep they did with Listen on it - 33 and a 3rd whatever it was called. Don't suppose you have that one knocking out mate do you please?
