XSLF started in 2013 when original Stiff Little Fingers guitarist Henry Cluney met Jim O’Reilly again after years of not seeing him. Henry had been doing solo shows for a few years prior and Jim put the idea forward to form a band. They only wanted to play music they were actually involved in and that meant the first three SLF albums. Anything else would have made them a very strange tribute act indeed! Since then they have been writing and recording original music which is being well received. Ave Tsarion is their bass player and a big part of the setup including writing music. Unfortunately Jim has had to step down for health reasons on the advice of his doctor. His health is more important than gigs and we really wish him back to full fitness soon. On drums they now have Glenn Kingsmore. Glenn is the drummer for legendary Belfast band The Defects. Anyone who has seen him play knows what a powerhouse he is! Come support us through this and see for yourself!
