Stiff Little Fingers

Finding a kid for the cover of the Stiff Little Fingers single from their first album ‘Inflammable Material’ on Rough Trade Records was not easy. I decided that it should be a tough kid from a council estate or some such and went to South London to search for him.  After hours of walking the streets I spotted this kid, he was perfect.  It was getting dark and I asked him if I could take a photo. Later when the single came out his mum called up to ‘have a few words’ with the record company … but it all got sorted.

    I remember this when it came out. The cover reproduction was awful!
    Great pics though.
