Belfast’s Stiff Little Fingers belong to the select elite group formed on the back of punk in mid to late 70s.

Appearances on Top of the Pops and chart success accumulated until they split in 1983. The group reformed in 1987 and have continued on since then. Co-founder Henry Cluney left some years ago but the call of the early days led him to form XSLF (ex-Stiff Little Fingers).

Six years ago Henry collaborated with original drummer Jim Reilly and embarked on a short tour comprising of a set that included the most recognisable tunes such as Alternative Ulster, Suspect Device, Nobody's Heroes and At The Edge.

XSLF were invited to Hereford to test the water and played their first mainland gig to a sold-out venue of 200+ attendees. The group have a great affinity with Hereford and are back again, ready for the lead up to (White) Xmas.

XSLF bring an inclusive feel to their set with a crowd invite to an on-stage singalong. They will also be playing tunes from their new album to be released in 2020. Guest drummer Glenn from the Belfast band The Defects, and the driving force of Ave Tsarion on bass will join XSLF for this Hereford date.

In aid of the Mayor's local charities, the Left Bank gig on November 22 will feature two local support bands. Last year’s gig was so successful, there is a reunion with those fresh faced upstarts DeadBeats who play songs from the new wave era performed with suitable angst and power. The original support band to the first XSLF gig six years ago are Wasted Life, albeit with a different line up and different name!

Entry on the door, and make a note to keep your wristband for entry to the Heart of Anarchy festival at The Herdsman the following day for a discounted £5.
