THE SAINTS - This Perfect Day 12'' 1977

Back from a relaxed birthday party not tired yet I have the urge to bring this cool band from down under to you, this is buzzing in my head for a few days and today is the day: The Saints are a rock band, originating in Brisbane, Australia founded by Chris Bailey (singer-songwriter, later guitarist), Ivor Hay (drummer), and Ed Kuepper (guitarist-songwriter) in 1974. Alongside mainstay Bailey, the group has had numerous line-ups. In 1975, contemporaneously with American punk rock band the Ramones, the Saints were employing the fast tempos, raucous vocals and "buzz saw" guitar that characterised early punk rock. With their debut single, "(I'm) Stranded", in September 1976, they became the first "punk" band outside the US to release a record. This is their second 7inch and some 12 Inches were pressed with the note: "Important Notice - Due to an administrative error, this limited 12" pressing of The Saint's "This Perfect Day" c/w "L-I-E-S" single contains a third, additional title not available on the normal 7" pressing. The additional title, "Do The Robot", has consequently been withdrawn from future releases consideration and will now be available only on this 12" pressing". Well, this is not my rip and sometimes I regret that but good music should and must be heard and bloggers are there for that. Apart from that, the band is still active and they will hopefully rock at the age of seventy.
