EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s a hallucinatory quality to Scientist’s early-'80s work—the sense of a weird, mysterious world emerging from a fog of echo and effects. Nowhere was this in fuller swing than on 1981’s Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires. As with all dub worth its spring reverb, the music here is both minimal and ultra-evocative, filled with horror-movie interjections (“I WANT BLOOD!”, “I AM THE LIVING DEAD”) and strange sound effects that skitter across the mix like shadows in a dim room. You think you heard it. But did you?
