The Saints: Music Machine, London

Rosalind Russell, Record Mirror, 15 October 1977

THE SAINTS opened their new British tour at the Camden Music Machine — that was their first and I hope only mistake. It's fine booking a disco band in there because they don't need that much rapport with the audience. But a band like The Saints, or any rock band doesn't need to be hovering 15 feet in the air above the heads of their fans. The place is like a barn, defying a cohesive atmosphere.
