The Scientists
9H2O.SiO2

Brand new 12” EP of five original tracks from hugely influential Australian post-punk band The Scientists, who are about to embark on another U.S. tour following the success of last year’s reformation. The group are one of the most highly regarded ‘cult’ acts ever, originating in the post-punk era of the early Eighties and influencing the likes of Sonic Youth and Nirvana.

The Scientists
Not For Sale: Live 1978/79

Lovely bunch of live recordings of Perth-based band The Scientists before they started making whatever 'swamprock' is meant to be. Back in 78/79 they were more of a post-punk affair, though more interested in melody than much of what was happening in the UK. Not For Sale: Live 1978/79 is a vital document of a band still figuring themselves out.

The Scientists
Braindead (Resuscitated) / SurvivalsKills

Los Angeles label In The Red (Ex-Cult, Wand) host the return of The Scientists. The Aussie swamp-punks have been pretty inactive since the 1980's, with only a handful of recordings emerging in the intervening years, but they seem to have got the bit between their teeth again. Here they re-record 1987’s ‘Braindead (Resuscitated)’ - a fitting choice for a comeback single - and back it with new song ‘Survivalskills’.

Scientists
Weird Love

Love a bit of scuzz down the ol’ Numero Group don’t they? Their latest bit of freaky-deaky rawk goodness is a reissue of an album by late Aussie group Scientists. The band have been largely inactive since the 1980s, and 1986's Weird Love was taped in their endgame. An LP comprised of re-recordings of early singles and EP cuts, the record has the pleasingly unhinged feel of a band trying to prevent itself from falling apart as it plays the hits. The Gun Club and The Cramps spring to mind.

The Scientists
A Place Called Bad

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.

The Scientists
Blood Red River

The Scientists were a heavy blast to the people of Australia, turning up in 1981 with two large sacks filled respectively with punk-rock attitude and bouncy tunefulness. 1983’s Blood Red River added a thick dose of swamp heat to the mix. With the drawling howls of the vocals and the slippery bass, this is one sinewy record. Reissued on The Numero Group.

The Scientists

The Scientists were a heavy blast to the people of Australia, turning up in 1981 with two large sacks filled respectively with punk-rock attitude and bouncy tunefulness. The Scientists (known by most as the Pink Album) was recorded as this line-up of the band was collapsing, for extra energy and friction.
