"no kidding. When you are an angry teenager growing up in the early 1980's you need inspiration, a reason to carry on, and I found that in early punk and new wave music and specifically, the music of Stiff Little Fingers. To me they were the Irish version of the Clash and they had a penchant for the same type of angry, flag waving yet melodic protest songs that the Clash were famous for in their early years. And here they are in all their live,ragged glory. "Gotta Getaway," "Fly the Flag," "Tin Soldiers," all are awesome songs and should be listened to at maximum volume. I would have given it five stars but I have a sentimental spot in my heart for their early, live Chrysalis release, "HANX!" If you are just discovering this band, I envy you, if not, then you know what I mean."
