The Saints – All Fools Day


The Saints – All Fools Day

I should’ve posted this on April 1st!

It’s another great work from our favourite Aussie Punk/Post-Punk Band, the wonderful Saints!

Just give me one last kiss
this jewel is a roughened friend of mine
I suppose we all have to go sometime
Christ abandoned in the wilderness
could have blessed himself
& been done with it
not you or me
we’re stuck here in this mindless eternity
On all fools day


This, the Saints 7th studio Album, released in 1986 was Chris Bailey’s commercial breakthrough.

Opening with the classic song about life on the road in a rock band, “Just Like Fire Would”, their highest chart success, this album also produced two other singles “See you in Paradise” and ” Temple of the Lord”, and put the Saints on the mainstream map – if only for an all too short time.

Chockfull of Chris’s typical religious references, caustic wordplay and world-weary observations, its a true fucking classic!
