Live At The Hope & Anchor 1977 is a live CD by Australian punk group The Saints which is included in the box set All Times Through Paradise.
This is available as an mp3 download so you can just grab disc 4, The Saints performing live in concert.
The Saints are often neglected when there is any review of punk rock. Instead the main focus is on The Ramones, the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
That’s a shame because I remember very clearly the excitement caused by the first single issued by The Saints, (I’m) Stranded in September 1976.
What was this noisy, fast music. We didn’t know where it was going to lead.
