Kim Salmon taking 1988 Scientists on the road
Mark this one in your diary: Kim Salmon is taking the late period line-up of The Scientists out on the road in Australia for just four gigs later this year.
Guitarist-vocalist Salmon, bassist Boris Sudjovic, guitarist Tony Thewlis and drummer Leanne Cowie (nee Chock) were the 1988 configuration of the band, based in the UK and responsible for some of the band's most striking and harsh music. They'll be hitting Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in October and November.
The subject of "A Place Called Bad", a magnifciently packaged box set on the niche Numeo Group label last year, The Scientists have a huge reputation as forerunners of swamp and grunge. Salmon has made a habit of reviving various line-ups from time to time. This tour promises to be something special.
