Henry Cluney Biography (Wikipedia)
Henry Cluney (born 4 August 1957, Belfast, Northern Ireland) was a guitarist in Highway Star, the school band that became Stiff Little Fingers in 1977. He remained with the group until lead singer Jake Burns disbanded them in 1983.
He toured briefly with the band Dark Lady supporting Jake Burns and the Big Wheel, notably at the Marquee Club in Wardour Street but then spent five years back in Belfast teaching guitar until Stiff Little Fingers was reformed. He was a regular songwriting contributor for the group's first four albums, taking over lead vocal duties on his own compositions. He left the group amid some acrimony in 1993.
He moved to Rochester, Minnesota in 1997, keeping up his involvement in music, playing guitar with several regional rock bands.
Cluney completed a feature-length film in 2008/9 and, in 2009, toured the UK for the first time in fifteen years, as the opening for The Damned and The Alarm on their 341 tour. He subsequently toured the next two years, as a solo artist, and in 2013 formed XSLF with former bandmate Jim Reilly, and friend, Ave Tsarion.
