Scientists' influence spanned oceans, eras

It's funny how music works -- how it can cross oceans and borders and even generations.
How a band like THE SCIENTISTS, from the most isolated big city in the world, PERTH, could influence so many other bands all over the world.

I am listening to an early 1980s incarnation of KIM SALMON and his band now, and I am reminded of MUDHONEY and bands from the 1990s and beyond.

The guys in Seattle must have been avid record collectors, combined with the fact that The Scientists' music seems so timeless -- not quite 1960s garage rock, but with echoes of that music wedded to the energy of punk.

I want to listen to the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS tonight, but it's hard to turn away from The Scientists.
