The Scientists are back in the studio - and back on Fruits de Mer...
In 2013, we released a double LP retrospective of the wonderful Welsh psychedelicists’ early work – it was their first airing on vinyl; the set was called ‘Whatever Happened To The Soft Hearted Scientists’. I’ve been talking to their front man Nathan Hall about returning to their back-catalogue ever since and I managed to persuade the band that a second retrospective needed a new track to complete the package (they’d somehow not made it into the studio together for three years); the resulting track, ‘Please Read Me’ was so damn good I had to put it out as a single last year – and this set includes an extended version of it.
rumour has it the band enjoyed themselves so much we could be hearing more - much more - from them in 2021, but that's for another time...
Here you have a double LP of some of the Scientists’ most beguiling songs – most of them taken from their more recent albums - but, more than that, you have in total a FOUR LP set, including a second double LP, this time of Soft Hearted Scientists instrumentals – songs stripped-down and then sewn back together in magical style into four sidelong pieces by Astralasia’s Marc Swordfish for a completely different perspective on their music, unveiling aspects that might otherwise have remained hidden behind Nathan’s lead voice and lyrics.
