CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE


CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE

Crash Course in Science (CCIS) is an electronic musical group that was formed in 1979. The band members, Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny, met while attending art school in Philadelphia, USA. 

The band was formed as a way to explore performance art and music, which the members desperately needed to express. Choosing toy instruments and live drums out of necessity, CCIS began to experiment with a series of recording devices. The toy instruments gave way to crude drum machines and 'Frankenstein' typehomemade instruments. As a result, CCIS came upon a sound they could call their own.

They avoided the sounds of conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen appliances to augment the distorted guitar, drums and synthesised beats. Championed by local radio station WXPN DJ Lee Paris they recorded the single "Cakes In The Home" (with the B-side containing "Kitchen Motors" and "Mechanical Breakdown") for his Go Go label (GO GO R001). This was followed by "Signals From Pier Thirteen" (Press Records P 2001) in 1981 produced by John Wicks at Third Story Recordings.

The songs 'Cardboard Lamb' and 'Flying Turns' quickly became club favorites during the early 80's. 

Their memorable, and already legendary comeback live concert at the renown BIM festival (19/12/2009, Antwerp, B) proved that Crash Course In Science is back in full force and still knows how to kick electro ass!
