The Scientists are the ultimate cult band!
Mysterious, undefinable and yet many quite distinct things to many people.
Some blame them for Grunge, some think they’re a power pop band, some think they’re experimental.
Tav Falco describes them in Ghosts Behind The Sun thus:
“Mercurial individuals who’s science is strictly alchemical.”
Originating in Perth Western Australia in the beginnings of Post Punk they travelled to Sydney, then London cutting a swathe through the indie scene throughout the 1980s only to vanish.
Sited as a seminal influence by so many – Sonic Youth, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Mudhoney, Nirvana the band had to return some time.
In 2018 they’ve returned recorded 3 singles, Mini Mini Mini, Braindead, and a soon to be released EP on In The Red called 9H20.SiO2.
They made their first trip to the USA last year confirming what people suspect. They are totally unique… distinct from other bands and sound as brutal now as ever. Not to be missed!
B-17 formed in 2011 in Toronto, featuring members of past local psychedelic bands (The Hoa Hoa's/Action Makes/Easy Targets). B-17 were born out of a love for heavy psych rock like Spacemen 3,and Hawkwind as well as classic American fuck up rock like MC5 and The Stooges.
Having shared stages with the likes of Red Kross, Crocodiles, Biblical and Simply Saucer, their shows are not to be missed.
