Liner Notes

There have been other saint's compilations but this is the first that I have had anything to do with personally. The tunes on this CD range from the first LP through to the present and we hope we have picked those that best capture each passing phase of the band.
As this is a liner note I suppose I should be indulging in a nauseating sea of hyperbole & nostalgia ... but that wouldn't be in keeping with my concept of what the group is & has always been about. I hope the music speaks for itself without the need for much eulogizing on my part.

Despite never being quite hip to the demands of fashion or the dictates of the bizz, we [the radical femnist collective] have managed to hang on tenaciously to the frock end of the mad beast that is showbizz - in itself a not unremarkable feat!.. The raving egocentric bastard that dwells within would like to claim credit for this… however that would be remiss, as without our ever evolving 'casts of thousands' this would not have been possible. So just like the blushing beauty queen in the pageant I suppose I should use this dedication as an opportunity to express my thanks? appreciation? respect? love? to all who have sailed in the glorious debacle that are,
The Saints
If ship be the metaphor ............. Long may she sail!
