Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster


On this date in 1978, Stiff Little Fingers released their second single, "Alternative Ulster". It was backed by "78 RPM.". The A side appeared on their debut album, Inflammable Material. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on 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. Jake Burns and Ali McMordie, from their original lineup, are still there.
