Legendary Aussie punk band The Scientists sang about getting wasted, souped-up cars, dead-end jobs and paranoia. Their music melded dirty rock ‘n’ roll and punk through a throbbing bass, drum clatter and jagged guitars. A Place Called Bad gathers together their complete studio recordings, live and previously unreleased stuff on a four CD box set. The vinyl edition contains 23 essential tracks. Fans of the band include Thurston Moore, Warren Ellis and Jon Spencer, who claims that The Scientists made a man out of him.
