The Scientists to put "Negativity" back on the map

scientists colour 2022

Beloved fuzzy noise makers The Scientists are finally heading off around Australia to promote their newest album, “Negativity”.

The record released in 2021 as their first full-length studio effort in 34 years, attracted some rave reviews including this pearler from our own Robert Brokenmouth. The five-state tour spans February and March, 2023.

Formed in Perth in 1978, the punk pop hooks of “Frantic Romantic” and “Last Night” removed them from their hometown to wider acclaim, re-emerging in Sydney with a darker, primitive concoction similar to that of The Stooges, Suicide, Cramps, Gun Club, Sonic Youth and The Birthday Party.

A string of swamp rock classics such as “Atom Bomb Baby”, “Swampland”, “We Had Love” and “Human Jukebox” and a relocation to London before imploding in 1987. For 20 years the band lay dormant until re-emerging in 2006 for All Tomorrow’s Parties. They have since reformed for various tours including the Don’t Look Back Australian run, pairing with Sonic Youth to perform “Blood Red River” and “Daydream Nation” respectively.
