Saints, The - This Perfect Day (Limited Edition 12" Pressing)

Saints, The - This Perfect Day (Limited Edition 12" Pressing)**
.
The Saints are an Australian rock band, formed in Brisbane in 1974. They are considered to be one of the first and most influential punk groups. By 1975, contemporaneous with the Ramones, The Saints were employing the fast tempos, raucous vocals and "buzzsaw" guitar that characterised early punk rock. With their first single "(I'm) Stranded", in late 1976, they released a record ahead of better-known punk acts like the Sex Pistols and The Clash. Bob Geldof has been quoted as saying, "Rock music in the Seventies was changed by three bands — the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints".
The founding members of the band, other than Chris Bailey, left during the 1970s. During the 1980s, The Saints progressively adopted a more mainstream, classic rock style, and they achieved increasing commercial success in Australia.

** Due to an administrative error, this limited 12"pressing of The Saint's "This Perfect Day" c/w "L-I-E-S" single contains a third, additional title not available on the normal 7" pressing. The additional title, "Do The Robot", has consequently been withdrawn from future releases consideration and will now be available only on this 12" pressing. (source Discogs - link)
