Cult Auzzie Punks The Saints at The Kazimier Liverpool 

One of the original punk bands, seminal Australian group The Saints visit Liverpool this coming Thursday. 

A groundbreaking act whose touchstone first single ‘(I’m) Stranded’ was released prior to The Sex Pistols’ vinyl debut, the Brisbane group were the first Australian punk band to break internationally. 

Touring in support of 2014s lauded King of the Sun/Midnight Sun LP which saw the band pair the 2012 studio original with a set of reworked back catalogue classics, Bruce Springsteen’s recent cover version of ‘Just Like Fire Would’ saw the group reach a massive new audience. 

Formed in 1973 and taking inspiration from The Stooges/MC5 the primitive, driving rock n’ roll captured on their 1977 debut LP (I'm) Stranded has been cited by Jesus and Mary Chain vocalist Jim Reid as a major influence. 

A sizeable inspiration on fellow Aussie Nick Cave, Saints founder Chris Bailey appeared on The Bad Seeds 2003 LP Nocturama. 

Moving towards a classic rock sound in the 1980s and developing an ongoing cult following Stateside, the band have inspired legions of musicians in their home country and beyond.
