The Saints - No Time

The Saints - No Time.

From The Saints' first album, I'm Stranded, comes a buzzsaw-like cut that deserves far more attention from rock n' roll fans and punk rock devotees.

Here's an excerpt from Jack Rabid's AllMusic review of that first LP:

"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. Australians today hold the Saints in greater reverence than any rock band in its history, save for the Easybeats."

Have a Listen!
