The Science Group biography
Formed in 1997 by Chris Cutler and composer and multi-instrumentalist Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer, this group's lineup also included in their two albums Bob Drake, Fred Frith, Claudio Puntin (from the Syntopia Quartet), Amy Denio and Mike Johnson (on the second album).
The two original members met already in 1981 in Tickmayer's home town of Novi Sad and then only met again in the 1990's when ReR, owned by Cutler, imported Tickmayer's albums. The relationship deepened when Tickmayer invited Cutler to collaborate with him on scoring film music and in 1996 the idea came up to record music together, revolving around those aforementioned texts. Tickmayer composed the music in both albums and the second album is instrumental.
Their music, avant-rock, also incorporated elements from contemporary classical and jazz music, giving them an avant-garde edge. Both their album were released on ReR; A Mere Coincidence in 1999 and Spoors in 2003.
The name of the band is based on song lyrics that Chris Cutler wrote that revolved around scientific issues such as physics and genetic engineering.

Review by progressive

5 stars Dark atmosphere, catchy stunners, dispersed stunners,high vocals, warm bass clarinet, weirdness. Awesome, and though this album might be lacking of something (like more longer songs) it is an avant-prog gem. One of my favourite albums. Weird science.

Mnemonic (1. / 2:36) starts with noises reminding me of Cleaning Women, soon bass clarinet and female vocals coming. The next song Aleph Zero (2. / 2:24) continues from there and starts to resemble more PRESENT and THINKING PLAGUE. The music is still merely splintering, with lively occasionalities. Engineering (3. / 6:04) is more atmospheric, mellow and spooky ambientism with vocals - nothing special for me but actually not too long track.

Lost In Translation (4. / 1:09) is a very good catchy avant-(pop)prog song, but very short. It is irritating, but also the shortness has some mysticism in it. Chimera (5. / 6:15) starts interestingly - compared to Engineering, this is much spookier and otherwise better (Resembling also Mew's And the Glass Handed Kites). And once again we can witness avant-prog's power to make very good pop (I sometimes use name indie avant-garde) . Amy Denio's singing is just lovely and the melodies & harmonies strange. While listening to Parity (6. / 3:06), one cannot forget band named 5UU's. Bob Drake sings in both bands. Try to stay on track because this is bombastic! The song has also different moods and things pushed together and it works! Love (7. / 4:52) sounds pervert and lovely love! There's weird interrupting things but still the song is very mellow. Open Or Closed (8. / 4:15) isn't actually comforting me much, but it is sypposed to be so weird as it is, and maybe unconfortable, a little bit poppy, again. Napoleon (9. / 1:54) is a short rocker. .......In..... (10. / 0:25) is the shortest - rhythmical speaking and drums, nice! ............Schroedinger's Box (11. / 1:08) is a very lovely - once again poppy - song, like Event Horizon (12. / 1:49) and it's hard to describe. Maybe you will understand and approve it. Lab Notes (13. / 2:53) is slow and clumsy. I think the scientists are tired and crazy, but still this isn't so nice song. Scale Invarians (14. / 3:36) is very mystic, monumental, with nice ideas and some adorable elephant (or some animal) voices. Masterful! There Must Be Something (15. / 7:19) sympathetic mourning song. Much noises here, also (I don't usually like them but they suit for this album). The last untitiled song (16. / 3:03) is quite psychedelic rocker. The sound is a bit computer-like, but it doesn't bother me.

For fans of 5UU's, THINKING PLAGUE etc this is a must-have. These songs just are great!: Lost In Translation, Chimera, Parity, Scale Invarians and There Must Be Something. The rating could well be only 4 stars, because of the structure of the album, or some even awkwardnesses, but there's some reasons that makes me love this.
