Formed in the late ‘70s in Perth, Australia, The Scientists spent the next decade going through a myriad of lineup changes, relocating to London and recording music that fused the snap of punk rock with a blues rock trudge. After Salmon put the project to rest in 1987, the band has reunited off-and-on over the years, including dates in Australia supportingSonic Youthand their sole U.S. show in New York for the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in 2010. The recently reassembled 1986 line-up featuring Kim Salmon, Tony Thewlis, Boris Sujdovic and Leanne Cowie are touring again (first ever US dates this fall!!!) and have been recording their first new material in over 30 years for In The Red. They sound as powerful and deranged as ever.
