The Scientists

 

.

 .

All support acts for the upcoming Scientists Australian tour have been confirmed and include appearances by Painkillers, The Loose Hounds(Perth), The Cairo Gang (US), No Sister (Melbourne), The Electric Guitars, Shanty Tramp (Geelong), Forevr, Some Jerks (Brisbane), Spike Vincent, Holy Soul (Sydney).

The Scientists existed from 1978 to 1987 Originally from Perth they moved to Sydney then to London and spent equal time in each perfecting their specific brand of sonic terrorism. Feared and revered almost as much for their tacky yet stylish appearance as for their sound TheScientists were the ultimate ‘cult’ band.

.

Last year prestigious Chicago label Numero Group released a compilation of the Scientists’ recorded catalogue entitled ‘A Place Called Bad’.

Here are some things said in the international music press about it:

.

“Audaciously genre crunching”.
Kris Kneeds, Classic Rock 8/10

“Experimental Jet Set, trash and 4 stars!”
Tim Peacock, Record Collector

“Hero’s to scores of Seattle Grunge bands – ninth compilation of their work compared to seven albums they actually recorded. Swampland was as memorable a manifesto is you could hope for.”
Michael Hann – The Guardian  

“Salmon and co’s pioneering post–punk demolition recreation of the blues has proved justly influential”
Andrew Perry – Mojo 4 stars

“Four disc history provides proof positive that Australia gave you Grunge”
Jason Anderson – 9/10 Uncut

.

The Scientists are back! In their classic 1985 lineup!

Kim, Boris, Tony and Leanne! Doing one show in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Geelong and Melbourne only!

AMNPLIFY – DB

My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.

Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.

Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.

I also have a nickname “Gurudave” and have a new Q&A I am distributing called “Conversations With Dave – In Deep With The Guru”. Let me know if you are interested in taking it and you can take my “Fuck” Quiz at the same time.

Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
