Stiff Little Fingers – 15th March 2019 – Newcastle O2 Academy
By Gav Wyatt (G.Wyatt photography)
If I’m honest this has been a punk band that I’ve missed.. totally missed, I’d heard of them but they’re a band that has never featured on my radar or in any of my playlists but I was there to catch them at the O2 in Newcastle along with a strong crowd this Saturday night.
In support of the stiff little fingers for the ignition tour is Eddie and the Hotrods who warmed the crowd with classics such as ‘Depression’ and Do Anything You Wanna Do finishing off with covers of The Who’s The Kids Are Alright and Gloria.
At this point the crowd is an eclectic mix, young, old, skinheads, mohawks, denim and Dr Martens on every other foot to welcome Stiff little fingers to the stage who opened with Law And Order followed by a deep cut .. at the edge was next to feature as Ali McMordie on bass covers the front and the back of the stage interacting with the crowd and Jake Burns takes centre stage with his emerald green guitar bathed in emerald green light.
