The Saints were an English instrumental band, that worked for the record producer, Joe Meek. The band were made up of Tab Martin (fresh from his stint with The Tornados), Roy Phillips (playing guitar), and drummer Ricky Winter (born Richard Winter, 27 September 1940, in Aldershot, Hampshire). They worked as the house band for Meek's productions, and as such backed Heinz, Andy Cavell (born 20 April 1945, Piraeus, Greece) and others. Their most notable recording was their cover of The Surfaris', "Wipe Out". They appeared as themselves in the British film, Live It Up!. Martin and Phillips went on to found The Peddlers in 1964.
