Live At Pig City- Brisbane  2007

Catalogue No.: SA001
Record Label: Shock Records

The Saints could have only come from Brisbane. Formed in 1974 and releasing "I'm Stranded" in 1976, on their own label, The Saints had a real Punk attitude. Banned in Brisbane, they became "overnight" sensations of the English press and EMI quickly signed them. In 1978, after 3 classic albums, it was all over. On July 14th 2007, 6,000 people celebrated the band and their legacy in a concert called "Pig City - Brisbane's Historic Soundtrack". The show came about after author Andrew Stafford was approached to transform his book on the history of Brisbane music, Pig City, into a festival. Stafford says the set lived up to lofty expectations. "They ripped into Swing for the Crime, and like most of the people in the place, I just couldn't believe it was happening," he said. "When they hit the horn solo, I died. And went to heaven". Chris Bailey, Ed Kuepper and Ivor Hay walked on stage to thunderous applause as a thank you and the band repaid the faith with a set that nailed your head to the back wall. This was not a nostalgia show, this was a band playing at the peak of their powers and showing what made them so relevant and so inspiring to a world of bands from The Go-betweens to Birthday Party to The Hives. From the first strains of "Swing For The Crime", through "I'm Stranded", "Know Your Product"Messing With The Kid" and finishing off with their unique version of "River Deep Mountain High, this was the Saints fulfilling their promise in front of an adoring crowd. As Ivor Hay said "We had unfinished business and Pig City was the way to do it". Also included on this historic release is Chris Bailey's remarkable ability to give some of the funniest intro's recorded (listen especially to the intro for "I'm Stranded"). This is the perfect companion piece to the EMI box set released "All Times Through Paradise".
