Catalogue No.: BANGLP37
Record Label: Bang! / Rocket
Format: 12" Vinyl

The Scientists are one of the cornerstone acts of the Australian New Wave. This Perth band not only helped kick-start the Aussie punk scene in the late 70’s, they later were one of the pioneering post punk acts playing a kind of dirty swamp blues. • Taking cues from kindred spirits like The Cramps and classic garage bands like The Trashmen and The Rats, they tapped a well of bleak garage noise that remains infl uential to this day and can count the likes of Mudhoney, The Drones, Jon Spencer BX and the Beasts of Bourbon at the top of a multi- generational list of contemporary noise makers who’ve been touched by the Scientists magic.• Issued as a double, 180gram, high defi nition vinyl edition. Strictly limited to 1000 copies. The gatefold jacket features previously unpublished photos as well as exclusive interviews and historical notes.
