|Howling was released in Mid 96 through early97-depending where you are in the world -and was the first saints album of the nineties.In the interim period since the last Saints CD "Prodigal Son"Chris Bailey had been recording and touring as a solo performer(see discography)...
Howling is classic Saints,a darkly passionate exploration of the territories of the human soul that most rock bands can`t even get near.In the pantheon of Saints albums this record is their "Heart of Darkness".From the opening track,the purposefully "low-fi"screech of the electric guitars are the perfect soundscape for the tortured journey through the cracked and occasionally tender vignettes of the human condition.It`s a great rock and roll record....
The album was recorded late at night somewhere in 1996,in a variety of positions onto a large tape recorder via a range of recently purchased sex aids and a couple of dodgy microphones.
All of which are highly recommended!
The meisterwerk was produced by a pair of dodgy old bastards in dirty raincoats whilst watching art films in a buddy booth at Madame Fifi`s aquatic emporium and home for wayward young ladies.
The following miscreants conspired to make the racket contained herein
Chris Bailey,Mons Weislander,Ian Walsh,Andreas Jornvill,Joakim Tacke,Lelle Hildebrand.
