Country: Canada (Toronto, Ontario)
Label: Private / Black Swan Records #Larry 1/Larry 2
Edition: xxx copies
Format: 12" Vinyl

Info: JAMIE LEE SAINT is the follow-up to BANSHEE, you know the band who released the single 'Breakdown'. The band includes 3 of the former members along with two guests and a new drummer (couldn't find out if they have been involved in any other bands, info welcomed). The MLP is not only a private release it's also one of the most "homemade" records I come across. The front/back covers is plain white regular sleeves with glued on artwork made in paper. Some copies seem to have come with a "red triangle" glued on as well. I am not sure, but this may have some relation to the illustration artist Kent Holm who is thanked on the back-sleeve (he made covers for AB/CD, Dag Finn, the Rockbox comp etc). A cool record worth to hunt down and ofc a must have for fans of BANSHEE.
You can listen to two of the songs from it here: "Woman of Mystery" and the new version of the classic BANSHEE 7" track "Breakdown".
Jamie Lee "Cooper" Saint - Vocals (Banshee, Jade)
