“The Scientists turned my head around and made a man out of me! They grew hair on my palms and made my socks stink!”—Jon Spencer

“They wrote fantastic singles and looked like they just crawled out of the ooze. What more could you ask for?”—Warren Ellis

“The Scientists proved to me that rock n roll could be played by gentlemen in fine silk shirts half unbuttoned and still be dirty, cool and real.”—Thurston Moore

Much will be said by us (and others) regarding Perth-Punk progenitors The Scientists in the months to come, but we should start by saying that the Oz ensemble will be playing two shows in the Motherland this Summer. First, the group’s original line-up will reunite on the stage of the Corner Hotel (57 Swan Street, Melbourne) on July 18th and a month or so later at the Factory Theatre (105 Victoria Rd, Sydney) on August 28th. Meanwhile, the group’s self-titled debut as well as their 1983 follow-up, Blood Red River, are available for pre-order on our website now. Copies will begin shipping later in the month.
