A band from Perth, Western Australia, first appearing in the 1980s. Their first (eponymous) album was simple teenage power pop, but from that point on they moved to a strange, distorted swampy blues sound. For all those who think that Nirvana is grunge, The Scientists were considered in the mid 1980s to be the archetypal grunge band.
