Synopsis

Album Description
2007 digitally remastered and expanded reissue of the Australian Punk band's 1978 sophomore album now featuring an additional 14 bonus tracks, all taken from 'The International Robot Sessions'. Never purposely fashionable, The Saints were Garage rockers caught up in the Punk scene, but their raw dirty sound fit perfectly into the Punk aesthetic.. This release is coinciding with a monumental occasion in Aussie musical history: the three surviving members of The Saints (Chris Bailey, Ed Kuepper and Ivor Hay) are reuniting for a one-off historical performance in Brisbane in July of 2007. 27 tracks. EMI.

CD Reviews

A killer album by Australia's greatest punk band
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 03/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"So, uh, if you thought the first Saint's album was cool, then check your pacemaker at the door before you put this one on the stereo. Ace bunny killer. An absolute classic of relentless and unceasingly catchy guitar rock. While the lyrics are comparatively highbrow, Chris Bailey's vocals are practically feral -- combined with Ed Kuepper's crushingly powerful guitars and a set of LOUD, LOUD speakers, and you've got a record to reckon with. At this point Bailey and Kuepper seem telepathically entwined; when they later had an inevitable falling out over artistic differences (or whatever...), the band went soft and postpunk, and while that stuff ain't bad, this record is amazing. One of the few seminal punk albums that still holds up when you're all grown up."

"Just bought this on CD after almost 30 years of having it on vinyl. I was excited to see new photos and liners from Chris Bailey inside. But man, does Chris sell this one short! The way the notes are written make it seem like to him it's a distant memory that only partially succeeded.

I would call this one of the 3 or 4 LPs from that era that has held up repeatedly over time. It never gets old. The horns are absolutely killer and a shock to hear the 1st time. It ain't perfect, but the best LPs never are, are they? The vocals spit out, the "come on's" are too often and the guitar and horn don't perfectly synch, but the rush and excitably are completely intoxicating. Great songs, unique arrangements, and the willingness to toss in those horns made this a shocker when it first appeared (bought it in a bargain bin at the time!)

Like the best of Buzzcocks, Wire, Magazine, some Clash, this one holds up and will forever. Chris, you've continued making great music over andd over, but man, don't discount this one, it's fantastic!"
Don't ignore this one!

"It took me a while but this a great album, it is loud,funny, it is just great. Always been hard to get and therefore grown into a frustration for a while. Don't tell me something I don't already know!!"
