CHRIS BAILEY “THE SAINTS”. (AU)
The Saints formed in Brisbane, Australia in 1976. The original members included schoolmates Chris Bailey (singer-songwriter, later guitarist), Ed Kuepper (guitarist-songwriter), and Ivor Hay (drummer).
Alongside mainstay Bailey, the group has had numerous line-ups. Contemporaneous with United States’ Ramones, The Saints were employing the fast tempos, raucous vocals and “buzz saw” guitar that characterised early punk rock. With their debut single, “I’m Stranded”, in September 1976, they became the first punk band outside the US to release a record, ahead of better-known acts including the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
In early 1979, the Saints had split, leaving Bailey to continue the band, with a variable line-up, as a pop punk group. In 1986, the band released their highest charting album All Fools Day – which peaked in the Top 30 on the Australian Kent Music Albums Chart in April 1986.
Over the years, the band has released thirteen studio albums seventeen singles, six EPs, two live albums and ten compilation albums. In May 2001, Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA) celebrated its 75th anniversary and named “(I’m) Stranded” in its Top 30 Australian Songs of all time. The band was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in September.
The Saints, despite going through numerous incarnations, were a part of rock & roll for more than 20 years, thanks mainly to their indefatigable leader (and founder), Chris Bailey.
Their new album is King of The Sun.

Dylan Walshe is on the rise, an Irish alternative roots artist from the county of Dublin, whose varied palette draws from; traditional Irish and European folk, to North African and Americanised blues, but his sound is his own. He is known for his robust guitar playing and warm unique vocal style, where songwriting is his craft and his lyrics are both insightful and poetic.
After many years of gigging, Dylan has recently began to record. In July 2012, Dylan suffered a near fatal accident & 2013 saw his return to live performances, performances which went from local to international. He has since toured extensively & has played alongside some of the most internationally established roots related artist.
With a debut live record released in Sept 2015 on Muddy Roots Records of Nashville, where Dylan currently resides, a debut studio record is also planned for 2016. Dylan’s songs are now being recorded for international release by other artists too.
