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. The band, named after the popular 1960s television character Simon Templar (aka ‘The Saint’), brought a strong DIY ethic to everything they did. With police breaking up their shows around Brisbane and arresting members of the audience, bookings dried up. The Saints punch out their wall of sound with unrivaled power and energy. Chris Bailey and Ed Kuepper are as good a songwriting team as there is in punk and for that matter, rock in general. Check out the swagger of the title cut, "Wild About You", "Erotic Neurotic and "Demolition Girl", simply stunning. Essential is an understatement.
