About this item
To prime the pump for the upcoming 1977 box set In The Red will be dropping next year, they are proud to announce this reissue of the 1976 debut single from The Saints. "(I’m) Stranded" was the first punk rock record to come out of Australia, one of the earliest punk singles from anywhere, and one of the greatest seven inches ever! In The Red is over the moon to put their fingerprints on this monster! For this reissue the label has replicated the original UK, US and Dutch picture sleeves, each with a unique colour vinyl variant.
47 years on from the original Fatal label release of (I’m) Stranded by Australian proto-punks The Saints comes the first ever reissue of the iconic single.
Manufactured originally at Astor Records Melbourne and received by guitarist Ed Kuepper on August 2nd 1976 in Brisbane the limited run of approx. 530 copies of (I’m) Stranded were split up and sent variously to overseas music publications, a handful of Australian shops plus Rough Trade London and Greg Shaw’s Bomb mailorder USA.
What happened next is history and paved the way for three of the greatest albums not just of the era but any era; (I’m) Stranded (’77), Eternally Yours (’77) and Prehistoric Sounds (’78).
Proudly presented by In The Red Records the 2023 7” edition of (I’m) Stranded appears in a limited run of 2000 copies across three different coloured vinyl versions and three different sleeves using the original 1977 UK, USA and Netherlands artwork.
