Aussie garage-punk legends THE SCIENTISTS have just announced a major European tour for the summer.
The band, who were initially put together by guitarist and singer Kim Salmon in 1978, recently convened in their classic '86 line up featuring guitarist Tony Thewlis, bassist Boris Sujdovic and drummer Leanne Cowie to record their first tracks in 30 years, a cover 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 month-long tour kicks off at London's Borderline on 31 May, taking in shows in Glasgow, Newcastle and Brighton, before heading to France, Germany and Scandinavia, culminating in a headline performance at Italy's Festival Beat on 29 June.
