plus The Go Go Cult
FRIDAY 1ST JUNE 2018
The Scientists are legends. Formed as straight up punk rock band in Australia in the late 70s, they soon relocated to London and transformed into a sprawling, feral swamp/punk/blues beast fit to rub shoulders with the Gun Club/Cramps/Birthday Party, etc. Huge influences on the likes of Mudhoney (who asked them to play their All Tomorrow’s Parties fest), and on the Gunk Punk scene of the 1990s.
Not seen in Scotland since touring with Siouxsie & The Banshees in 1984, and only occasionally seen at all since then. Their rare live appearances are a thing to behold.
This show is part of a small (4 date) tour of the UK and features the classic lineup of Kim Salmon, Tony Thewlis, Leanne Chock and Boris Sujdovic.
