KICKING UP A RACKET THE STORY OF STIFF LITTLE FINGERS 1977-1983   AUTHOR:  ROLAND LINK   PUBLICATION:  12TH NOVEMBER 2009     Stiff Little Fingers are synonymous with Ulster punk. All of the energy and excitement of the band¹s formation are captured in this examination of the early years of an Irish phenomenon. From the first meetings of future band mates to recollections of their gigs, there is a wealth of detail in this book. Including personal recollections of band members, fans and musical contemporaries, there is something new here for every Stiff Little Fingers fan as well as those with a more general interest in the punk genre. The book also features two photographic sections, capturing the band in action and behind the scenes ­ many images are previously unpublished.   THE AUTHOR: Roland Link was born and raised in Worcester, before moving to Birmingham in his mid-twenties. After touring and recording with punk rock Œn¹ roll band, Another Fine Mess, for several years he finally hung up his bass guitar and took up the computer keyboard instead. Always inspired by punk¹s Œget up and do it for yourself¹ approach, Kicking Up A Racket is Roland¹s first book, primarily written because he wanted to read a book about Stiff Little Fingers and no-one had written one!
