Check out a recently uploaded documentary on The Saints, and another on their debut LP, (I’m) Stranded

One of Australia’s greatest exports, The Saints first single, (I’m) Stranded, was released in September 1976, beating The Damned’s first single, New Rose to the shelves by a month, and ahead of any releases by the first wave of ’77 UK Punk including the Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, The Clash, The Stranglers, Vibrators, etc, making it a landmark recording in Punk, not to mention one hell of a debut.

Just take it from Nick Cave: “They were kind of god-like to me and my colleagues. They were just always so much better than everybody else. It was extraordinary to go and see a band that was so anarchic and violent.”

Can’t wait to watch these. Know Your Product!
