XSLF are the origins of Stiff Little Fingers -Main man Henry Cluney was co writer of and founding member, part of the original Belfast punks. Jim Reilly joined early on after a legendary phone call and audition down at the then emerging Rough Trade. Always a 100mph pure punk show, just like it was in the old days
Bio - Xslf started in 2013 when I met Jim again after years of not seeing him. I had been doing solo shows for a few years prior and Jim put the idea forward to form a band. We only wanted to play music we were actually involved in and that meant the first three albums. Anything else would have made us a very strange tribute act indeed! Since then we have been writing and recording original music which is being well recieved. Ave Tsarion is our bass player and a big part of the setup including writing music. Some people will never give us a chance because of their own silly bias but so what... We do it because we love it. Thanks to all our fans no matter where you are and we’ll see you out on the road somewhere.
