Scientists - Tivoli, Adelaide 8-07-83

The Scientists started out by releasing the now classic single Frantic Romantic in 1979 which was perhaps on the Powerpop/Buzzcocks side Punk, but still great. By the time of this recording they had released two LPs and several singles and the sound had moved a bit more towards a Post Punk sound. Still great of course. This recording is a soundboard recording and the sound quality is excellent.

  1. Any 80s Scientists is much appreciated. Same goes for Celibate Rifles & Johnnys. Thing is, the download link isn't there for the Scientists.
    Anyway, thanks for these rarities. Would love to hear some Eastern Dark and Beasts of Bourbon.
