Originally aspiring to be a nuclear physicist, Kim Salmon was swayed by the sounds of rock’n’roll and became a Scientist. He later became a Beast of Bourbon and then a Surrealist.
He’s been a seminal influence on Garage Rock and countless bands including Nirvana, Mudhoney, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, White Stripes and Spacemen 3. He’s performed at local and international festivals including Futurama, Pukkelpop, Don’t Look Back (with Sonic Youth), All Tomorrows Parties (in Melbourne, UK and New York), Big Day Out, Bluesfest and shared the stage with the likes of U2, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Stooges, Television, The Cramps, The Pop Group, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds and more.
Salmon’s latest release My Script received a 4.5 star review in Rolling Stone ,not to mention being included in their top 50 albums for this year and Henry Rollins declared “it might be Kim’s best record. It is so damn good.”
These shows take Kim Salmon at his purest essence.
