"Rock Music in the Seventies was changed by three bands- The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, and The Saints." Bob Geldof
Not that I give two shits about what Bob Geldof thinks, but he was correct about one thing in that quote: The Saints changed things up. This Australian group refused to be marketed and pinned down by the Punk/ New Wave label that a lot of bands were cast into at the time. And I'm not going to do that to them now in trying to explain their sound. All I'll say is that It's eclectic, good and timeless, just how I like my jams.
