Anyone have Flys, Stoat, Leyton Buzzards, Stoat or Punishment of Luxury sessions? Let me know, I am looking for them.


  1. Please Carpettes and The Zones

    Gracias !

  2. Hi there. Have to say your site is terrific. Any chance you have any live recordings of Brisbane's finest THE SAINTS circa 1977 - they did two UK tours and a short European stint. (Two shows have been released: Live at The Roundhouse and Hope & Anchor.) I know of one live show that is floating around Live at Barbarellas in Birmingham. cheers Mark

  3. Hi Mark, The only Saints show I have that is not officially released is Live at WFMU 5-21-05. I have the Hope & Anchor show but that has been officially released. I used to have the Birmingham show but that's gone missing and I also used to have the Punk Vault 7"ep that had three songs live from an Australian tv show in 1977. That's disappeared also. Other than these I've never seen any other 1977 shows by the Saints.

  4. That Desperate Bicycles Peel Session would be amazing to here.

  5. Marco, here is one song from the Desperate Bicycles Peel Session:

  6. Humongous thanks for the White Cats sessions.

    Best regards
