Following the news that Aussie punk legends THE SCIENTISTS would be playing a one-off London date next month, U.S. reissue label The Numero Group has announced the re-release of the band's complete works.
A Place Called Bad is a four-disc box set comprising the Perth band's complete studio recordings, live recordings, and a previously unissued set from Adelaide UniBar, plus dozens of previously unpublished photographs, discography, and fold out Perth Punk family tree.
There's also a double 12" vinyl set, collecting 23 essential tracks, plus all the paraphernalia.
Both CD and vinyl releases will be available as deluxe limited edition mail-order only versions, adding a previously unissued 7" EP by the Cheap Nasties, Scientists precursors and Perth's first punk band, or a 10-track cassette.
Set for release on 5 August, pre-orders are available here.
You can watch a trailer for A Place Called Bad here.
The Numero Group also reissued the band's self-titled debut album and mini-album Blood Red River on vinyl and download last year.
The Scientists play The Lexington, London on Saturday 25 June. Tickets are available here.
Look out for a feature on The Scientists in the forthcoming edition of Vive Le Rock!
