TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘I’m Stranded’ – Raw Punk Debut LP By THE SAINTS…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘I’m Stranded’ by THE SAINTS
Released: 21 February 1977

ALL MUSIC wrote: “The Saints were to Australia what the Sex Pistols were to Britain and
the Ramones to America. Picking up the germ planted by the defunct Stooges, MC5, Velvet Underground, and New York Dolls, the Saints sparked the Far East punk rock movement
with a blasting, blistering, scorching sound no one had heard before. Moreover, The Saints
were blitzing the unsuspecting in their home of Brisbane in 1973, long before the Sex Pistols
or the Ramones had even begun.”
– Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: So many didn’t/don’t know that these Aussie punks, led by the charismatic Chris Bailey were already producing rattling havoc before the┬áRamones let their hair grow and before Britpunk started.”
