Who is Kim Salmon?

Kim Leith Salmon is an Australian indie rock musician and songwriter from Perth. He has worked in various groups including The Scientists, Beasts of Bourbon, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, Kim Salmon and the Business, and Darling Downs. Australian rock musicologist, Ian McFarlane, described Salmon as one of the first Australians to "embrace wholeheartedly the emergent punk phenomenon of the mid-to-late 1970s" with The Scientists. He declared that Beasts of Bourbon were "masters of uncompromising gutbucket blues and hard-edged rock'n'roll" while the Surrealists early works provided a "dark, confrontational sound powered by Salmon's scratchy, neurotic guitar and snarling vocals". In 2004 Salmon was inducted into the West Australian Music Industry Association Hall of Fame.
