Australian music day, 1977. I woke up in a busstop one Sunday in Spring Hill, Brisbane, covered in purple, fallen Jacaranda flowers, hungover stumbled down the sunlit street and was assaulted by the Saints. I went into their little rundown workers cottage and got as close as I could to the bass amp,
I have never felt so alive, the music literally rips through your body and cleans you out,
and this version is perfectly lowfi, it sounds exactly like they sounded live except they were a lot lot lot louder and it could have been filmed in that very room.
