My rock ‘n’ roll confession to The Saint, Chris Bailey

Apr 11, 2022

We’re sorry, this feature is currently unavailable. We’re working to restore it. Please try again later. Dismiss By Lindy Morrison Normal text size Advertisement It was The Go-Betweens’ first trip to London with me on drums, courtesy of Rough Trade Records, which had paid us an advance to record the band’s second album. It was the early 1980s. Australian writer Clinton Walker had arranged for us to stay on our arrival in a house at Kensal Rise where Chris Bailey, lead singer of The Saints, lived with his sister Margaret. Chris and Margaret were away and Clinton, who’d been staying there, left keys for us hidden in the garden. We let ourselves in and fellow Go-Between Robert Forster and I fell into the deepest jet-lagged sleep in a double bed. Chris Bailey, seocnd from left, with The Saints in circa 1977. Credit:Getty Images In the early morning we woke to a gruff, demanding and toffy voice: “Who is that in my bed?” Towering above us was the man himself. I recognised the voice, the frame, the stance, the demeanour. Who wouldn’t. It was Chris Bailey. I’m from Brisbane, as were The Saints, and that band meant everything to me. Loading They showed us we could get out of town and find a musical path. They showed what rebellion in music could do. They were a political force in the world’s greatest rock/pop/punk band. They were defying genre labels. To hear The Saints’ songs that sang of the despair in Brisbane under the oppressive Bjelke Peterson regime, a government that stifled dissent and art, was uplifting. Brisbane (Security City) spoke to all of us musicians. And I was sleeping in his bed. Forster and I made ingratiating sounds as we untangled bed clothes to jump up from the mattress on the floor as Bailey climbed in fully dressed. Next morning we were gone before he woke.

Credit:Mark Hopper Advertisement I saw him over the years at gigs such as the Livid Festival in 1989, and at the funeral for music journalist Iain Shedden, who was the drummer for a later incarnation of The Saints. But it was just a couple of years ago that Bailey and I stood together at a music industry event, two old codgers talking about old times for hours. He’d lost a lot of weight. He was smaller and quieter but still spoke in that refined voice. The Go-Betweens (circa 1985), from left, Lindy Morrison, Robert Vickers, Grant McLennan and Robert Forster. I told him I’d carried guilt over an action I had committed that morning I left his London home. I had needed something to dampen my kick drum, so I found an old, floral, nylon eiderdown in the linen cupboard and borrowed it. I’d never returned it. Bailey laughed at me and said: “Whatever was there was yours to take, my dear. Do not think on this again.” But I did think of it again, today, when I heard the sad news. Chris Bailey, legendary singer of a legendary band, had died at 65. Lindy Morrison was an activist in political theatre in Brisbane and drummer in the punk rock band Zero in the 1970s before joining the Go-Betweens from 1980 to 89. Save
