The Saints Spit The Blues Out on 180g Import LP
2002 release by the Australian band whose 1977 debut single, “(I’m) Stranded” became one of the anthems of the original ‘77 era of punk rock. While the Saints abandoned punk rock circa 1980, and the only remaining member from the original line-up is singer/guitarist Chris Bailey, this album of down and dirty blues rock is punk in its own right, if you define “punk rock” as a way of being instead of a musical genre. A kind of tribute to a time when rock & roll was still dangerous, and ironically more akin to the kind of music that many American and particularly British bands were making just prior to the advent of punk.
