Formed in the West Coast town of Perth, Australia in 1978, the sound of the Scientists contains the entire history of that other West Coast sound…grunge.
Worshipped by the American indie scene of the early nineties and beyond, Kim Salmon actually allegedly coined the term “grunge” to define the Scientists own sound—although the Scientists perhaps had more in common with the Cramps than Mudhoney. Although the band released their first single in 1979 (“Frantic Romantic”), this compilation focuses on the period from 1982-1984, after the band had set up camp in Sydney and established their signature sound—beginning with their 1982 breakthrough single (“This Is My Happy Hour” b/w “Swampland”) and their influential “Blood Red River” EP, and ending with the band’s move to London in 1984.
