It’s been an astonishing 10 years since Stiff Little Fingers played Friars Aylesbury but now, they’re finally back to celebrate 50 glorious years of Friars in Aylesbury.
SLF formed in Belfast in 1977 and burst on to the emerging punk scene in 1978. Along with The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Jam, Buzzcocks and Undertones they were at the forefront of the punk movement. They first played Friars Aylesbury supporting the Tom Robinson Band in October 1978 and were immediately taken to Friars Aylesburys’ hearts. After that they were regarded as a core Friars Aylesbury band, and still are. The legendary Jake Burns and Ali McMordie still front the band as they did in 1978.
Special Guests will be the legendary Eddie & The Hot Rods who first played Friars in February 1976 followed by 4 more headline Friars appearances in October ‘76, February ‘78 (supported by Squeeze with Jools Holland), March ‘79 and October 2010 at the Waterside as special guests to Buzzcocks. They were so good at that first Friars Phase Four Waterside gig ending with their iconic version of Gloria and their trademark Do Anything You Wanna Do, that they almost stole the show.
It’s totally fitting that SLF and Eddie & The Hot Rods will be playing the Friars Aylesbury 50th Birthday Party and its bound to be one of the most exciting Friars gigs ever
