Stiff Little Fingers - Suspect Device

Stiff Little Fingers Debut single "Suspect device". I am sure many of you know this classic but as I have mentioned before, often the b-sides are even better, and for me this is the case here.

If you own their debut classic album "Inflammable Material" (and you should) the you will know the b-side "Wasted Life", if not then you are in for a treat. Jake Burns screams out the lyrics in his unique style and you will soon find yourself singing along.

Band: Stiff Little Fingers
Label Rigid Digits
Year: 1978
1. Suspect Device
2. Wasted Life

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

if you have not got this, the go and get it now, it is worth buying just for the brilliant "Barbed Wire Love" a blend of Punk, Doo Wop, and Beach Boys:

Thank you for posting this. I would just like to ask if this is the original lo-fi, indie version of this 7"? Cheers, Nathan.

Hi Nathan, I bought this when it was released and it's on the Rigid Digits label and not the re-release on Rough Trade. i wasn't aware there was a lo-fi version, but i assume that if there is, this is it.
