The Scientists went through many incarnations in their 9 year history but are remembered mostly for the lineup that existed from 1981 to 1985. Kim Salmon, Tony Thewlis, Boris Sujdovic and Brett Rixon together had the peculiar chemistry that produced the classics, Swampland, Happy Hour, the Blood Red River mini LP and We had Love. With a sound that was swampy, primal and modern-urban all at once - as much in the tradition of rock and roll and punk rock as it was a rejection of those things, the Scientists' formula was as universal as it was specific to their own experience.

Kim Salmon (vocals, guitar), Boris Sujdovic (bass, 1978, 1981-86), James Baker (drums, 1978-81), Roddy Ray'da (guitar, vocals, 1978-79), Dennis Byrne (bass, 1979), Ben Juniper (guitar, 1979-80), Ian Sharples (bass, 1979-81), Brett Rixon (drums, bass, 1981-85, 1987), Tony Thewlis (guitar, 1981-87), Richard Hertz (drums, 1985), Leanne Chock (drums, 1985-86), Rob Coyne (bass, 1986), Nick Combe (drums, 1986-87)
