Boomkat Product Review:
This live recording captures legendary Australian avant rock 'n' rollers The Scientists on the comeback trail in support of Mudhoney last year, shortly after playing the All Tomorrow's Parties festival the grunge legends curated in May 2006. although the band formed in 1978, it was their post-1981 incarnation as a swampy garage combo that had the greatest effect on generations to come, with the likes of Thurston Moore, Nirvana, The White Stripes and ATP's own The Drones all citing them as an influence. The band's raucous sound certainly hasn't been tamed by the passage of time. Sedition finds them on top form, with this set sounding somewhere between the The New York Dolls and The Birthday Party. Fearsome stuff.
