After starting as snappy new wave, power popsters in 1979, Australia’s Scientists gradually morphed into a seething, Down Under analogue of the Stooges and a swampier Birthday Party—albeit given to jaw-harp accompaniment. Frontman Kim Salmon and company really came into their own on the 1983 mini-album Blood Red River, which radiates a primal malevolence that’s still thrilling more than three decades later. “Set It on Fire” and “When Fate Deals Its Mortal Blow” especially plow a deep seam of evil, and their version of the Nancy Sinatra–sung Bond theme “You Only Live Twice” and Captain Beefheart’s “Clear Spot” pack punishing left hooks. A lot of Northwest fans of slashing, malevolent rock have been waiting more than 30 years to see the Scientists. Hard to believe it’s actually happening... perhaps Numero Group’s reissue, A Place Called Bad, was the key factor.
