Legendary Aussie punks THE SCIENTISTS have returned with their first new recordings in 30 years!
The band, fronted by guitarist and singer Kim Salmon, have reformed sporadically and in various permutations since splitting in 1987. They last hooked up in 2016 to celebrate the release of their box set anthology A Place Called Bad, dropping into London to play a scorching set at the Lexington.
This latest incarnation finds Salmon, guitarist Tony Thewlis and bassist Boris Sujdovic reconnecting with drummer Leanne Chock from their classic Weird Love and later Sedition periods. The fruits of the reunion are a Scientists-style overhaul of French 60s legend Jacques Dutronc's 'Mini Mini Mini' coupled with the first ever officially released studio version of Scientists rarity 'Perpetual Motion'.
The band celebrate the release with a series of Australian dates starting next week.
Both tracks are available to stream and download here.
