“Rock music in the seventies was changed by three bands—the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints.” Bob Geldof
On the 40th anniversary of the release of The Saints’ classic album (I’m) Stranded, founding member, guitarist and songwriter Ed Kuepper will revisit the material performed by that seminal Australian band.
Originally spawned in the early nineties, The Aints sought to bring justice to the sound and attitude of the original Brisbane-based band, capturing their energy and iconic onstage presence.
Alongside bassist Peter Oxley (Sunnyboys), drummer Paul Larson (The Celibate Rifles), keyboardist Alister Spence and a guest brass section, The Aints 2.0 will perform songs that spanned their three ground-breaking albums: the proto-punk classic (I’m) Stranded (1977), the hugely influential Eternally Yours (1978), and the genre-defying Prehistoric Sounds (1978).
“I don’t think that anyone, myself included, would have thought that this material I wrote when I was starting out would still have currency after all this time….but here we are celebrating it’s 40th anniversary. I’m actually pretty chuffed about doing it and have got a top notch band together to play the stuff.” – Ed Kuepper
