SONG FOR TODAY: The Saints - '(I'm) Stranded'

I own the 'Know Your Product' Best Of compilation from this band, but have yet to familiarise myself with it. "'(I'm) Stranded' is the first song released by pioneering Australian punk rock band The Saints. Issued in September 1976, it has been cited as "one of the iconic singles of the era", and pre-dated vinyl debuts by contemporary punk acts such as the Sex PistolsBuzzcocksThe Damned and The Clash...". The band are still going now, but frontman Chris Bailey is the sole original member.
