Kim Salmon is a legend in Australia that we're just now getting around to by checking out his 1995 album with The Surrealists

Author & Special Guests

Our second requested review of Australia month is the self-titled 1995 album by Kim Salmon & The Surrealists. By ‘95, Kim Salmon was already a legend in Australia, having fronted the influential 70s & 80s punk band The Scientists, then The Beasts of Bourbon along with The Surrealists amongst other projects. This album finds Kim and his rhythm section exploring some familiar sounds as well as new territory. We split our opinion on this record, but not how you might think.
