Stiff Little Fingers - Gotta Gettaway


On this date in 1979, Stiff Little Fingers released their third single, "Gotta Gettaway". It was backed by "Bloody Sunday". The A side appeared on their second album, Nobody's Heroes. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus track on some versions of the re-released CD. The Belfast, Northern Ireland punk band broke up in 1982 after four studio albums, one live album and numerous singles. They re-formed in 1987, led by original members Jake Burns and Ali McMordie. They occasionally release new material but have maintained a frequent performance schedule.
