Kim Leith Salmon is an Australian musician and songwriter.
Not content to rest on his past laurels and in his 37th year of performing music, Salmon has taken an unprecedented step of releasing three separate albums under three different guises in collaborations with Spencer P Jones, Ronald S Peno and his cohorts from 30 years ago, The Beasts of Bourbon.
In 2014, he will release an album of new material with Scientists drummer Leanne Cowie, possibly under the moniker ‘Kim n Leanne’.
Kim Salmon’s most enduring legacy, and not one that he particularly tried for, will no doubt be that many blame him, or at least his band the Scientists, for ‘grunge’. Kim’s given up resisting. He just figures ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’.
Kim began writing songs in Perth’s first Punk band, The Cheap Nasties and has continued ever since with the Scientists, the Beasts of Bourbon, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, The Business, STM, Antenna, The Darling Downs, SALMON, Precious Jules and the recent collaborations with Spencer P Jones and the two-piece project with Leanne Cowie.
His scope covers punk and garage, old school hard rock, avant garde, folk, blues jazz, electro, country and of course grunge.
His lyrics are not confined to the narrative, but pretty much cover everything from abstract characterisations to just plain simple rhyming ditties.
