Friars Heroes Hall of Fame

Stiff Little Fingers
Special second award 2010

See previous award for full details.  SLF are the first act to receive TWO Heroes Awards. This was to acknowledge their part in the 40th anniversary gigs.

Only one problem.....the plan had been to present on the night to the band but for one reason or another, our paths didn't cross (by about a minute!). We then agreed to present the award to the band at Cambridge the following week, but circumstances intervened (Jake was ill so the gig got pulled). So, we finally caught up with the band on their Spring 2010 tour in Oxford (where incidentally Penetration were also on the bill) where they proudly accepted the award and were particularly thrilled at receiving the award twice.

Jake Burns : I don't think we truly got to express how touched we were to receive a second award ! Surely, that should go to the magnificent Mr. Stopps ? Anyway, we were truly honoured and it means that (as the originals and pulling rank !!) Ali & I no longer have to argue over whose mantelpiece gets to flaunt it !

Thanks a million, once again.
