The Scientific Americans

Band from Boston, released some really obscure vinyl in the late '70s and early '80s.Wiel is the one to thank for getting me hooked on their stuff. I would say they sound like early Devo done dub or maybe Cars with a Shriekback inflection but since the Scientific Americans never liked being compared to "pop" bands I won't. The mini-posters (ad art) here came with a 9" (or 10") flexi disc EP "Beyond Fiscal Distress" Wiel got (he posted all this in November on his blog)from the band. Very cool DIY electro punk stuff. You want to hear it, let me know.

I just listened to "Beyond Fiscal Distress" for the first time in many many years (I bought it around 1982), and I'm amazed how well the music holds up. These guys rocked in a techno-punk way. I never have heard any other music from them.
