The science of swimming upstream
As if an inaugural US tour with the Scientists wasn’t memorable enough, Kim Salmon is packing a lot more into the back-end of 2019 and the kick-off of 2020.
He’s launching his Douglas Galbraith-penned biography, “Nine Parts Water One Part Sand. Kim Salmon And The Formula For Grunge” in Melbourne on November 9, heading a bill that includes King Congo (backed by Harry Howard and the NDE) and Dave Graney and the MistLY.
Salmon is being inducted with the Scientists in the WA Music Hall of Fame on October 31 – along with former teen idol and Young Talent Time TV host, Johnny Young (!)
And he's issuing two new singles, “Lets All Get Destroyed” b/w “Unadulterated” under his own name, and a split Kim Salmon/Scientists 45, “The Poison Pen” b/w “Dissonance”.
On top of all that, he’ll open an Art Exhibition at Mario’s in Melbourne through December, and then he’s off on tours with The Beasts (see the Living Eye section at right) and playing his own material, both in solo mode and with a range of local line-ups.
