The Saints - (I'm) Stranded

Hard to believe That (I'm) Stranded by legendary Aussie rockers The Saints is 30-years old! This is probably my favorite album from the original late 70's punk rock explosion. Marketed as a 'punk' band by the trendy London music press, in reality this is just a kick ass high-octane rock 'n' roll record -- as loud and fast as the Sex Pistols and their ilk, but without the prerequisite spiky hair and safety pins. The title track, "No Time" and their cover of the 60's garage rock classic "Wild About You" by The Missing Links are as wild and dangerous as rock 'n' roll gets, but that's only part of the Saints equation. My two favorite songs on (I'm) Stranded these days are the bluesy ballads "Messin' With The Kid" and "The Story of Love." Chris Bailey was/is an awesome vocal talent and his prowess really shines here as it would on later similarly inclined classics like 1984's "Ghost Ships."
