Kim Salmon Biography

Kim Salmon is a famous Australian musician, who was born on January 24, 1957 in Australia. Kim Leith Salmon was born in 1957 in the Western Australian port city of Bunbury. He later recalled wanting to be a nuclear physicist until, at the age of 13, he heard “heavy rock stuff” on the radio. He bought his first guitar, “an acoustic steel string thing”, for A$14 and taught himself to play “Black Night” and “Tobacco Road”. By the age of 18 Salmon had started a fine arts course at a university but deferred after a year, “I didn’t really fit in with it”. At the age of 19 he was a member of Troubled Waters, a cabaret covers band playing in a Fremantle strip club. According to Astrologers, Kim Salmon’s zodiac sign is Aquarius.

In September 1981 Salmon and Sujdovic, with Rixon on drums and Tony Thewlis (ex-Helicopters) on guitar, reformed The Scientists and moved to Sydney. McFarlane noted that the Sydney line up had “dropped the melodic, punky power pop of old for a more malevolent, psychedelic-tinged neo-rock’n’roll”. By December 1982 they had issued another single, “This Is My Happy Hour”. In September the following year they released another EP, Blood Red River, which was an influential record of the post-punk era. In March 1984 the group toured the United Kingdom and Europe playing an amalgamation of blues, punk and noise. The Scientists remained in the UK and went through several further incarnations, with Salmon remaining as the sole constant member, before the band returned to Australia in early 1987 and broke up again late that year.

By early 1978 Salmon had joined The Exterminators replacing Mark Demetrius on lead vocals. Fellow members were John Dowlings on drums; Roddy Radalj on guitar and vocals; and Boris Sujdovic on bass guitar. The group were renamed The Invaders, and in May 1978 James Baker replaced Dowlings on drums (ex-Geeks, Beheaded, The Victims). They changed their name to The Scientists and in August Sujdovic left. He was eventually replaced by Dennis Byrne on bass guitar in January 1979.

They had issued their debut extended play, The Scientists, in February: Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, described the single and EP as “one of the most collectable artefacts of the Australian punk rock era”. Further line up changes occurred with Salmon, Baker and Sharples recording a studio album of the same name in January 1981. The group broke up and Salmon formed a briefly existing group, Louie Louie, with Brett Rixon on drums (ex-Screaming Fits), and Kim Williams on bass guitar. By August that year Louie Louie had disbanded and The Scientists album was released by EMI. McFarlane felt that Salmon was one of the first Australians to “embrace wholeheartedly the emergent punk phenomenon of the mid-to-late 1970s”.

Their first two albums, Hit Me with the Surreal Feel (October 1988) and Just Because You Can’t See It … Doesn’t Mean It Isn’t There (February 1990), were described by McFarlane as having a “dark, confrontational sound powered by Salmon’s scratchy, neurotic guitar and snarling vocals”. Also in 1990 Salmon issued his debut solo single, “Lightning Scary”, which appeared on the Surrealists third album, Essence, in September of the following year.
