Stiff Little Fingers celebrate their 40th anniversary with the release of the new live album Best Served Loud – Live At Barrowland. Stiff Little Fingers' live shows are always special events. None is more special than the band's annual St Patrick's show held at the famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow. 2016 saw the band celebrate the 25th year in a row they played there and the show was recorded initially for a limited edition direct to fan release only. Now earMUSIC will release Best Served Loud – Live At Barrowland as a 180g 45rpm 2LP-set.

With their latest studio album No Going Back in the can and songs such as "Trail of Tears," "My Dark Places" and "Liar's Club" in tow, Stiff Little Fingers span such diverse topics as the economic crash, Jake's personal struggle with depression, and racism in the West. The candid and sincere nature of these tracks, like much of SLF's music, captures the heart of the listener. In particular, "My Dark Places" which opens with the lyrics: "Well it cuts just like a knife/Takes away your love of life" was so inspiring that countless fans contacted Jake to tell him how the song gave them the strength to tell others about their own bouts with depression.

Formed in 1977 in Belfast Stiff Little Fingers are regarded as pioneers of punk rock. Alongside The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Buzzcocks, and Undertones they brought in a new era of music, a culmination of their own experiences and the political strife they witnessed, growing up at the height of "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland. Notable songs like "Suspect Device" and "Alternative Ulster" exhibited SLF's signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment. It's this raw edge that defines the band and their continued vulnerability is what makes their music so relatable.
