Crash Course in Science

Reunited synth post-punk group Crash Course in Science headlines Le Poisson Rouge tonight (August 8th), dipping into their catalog of late 70s/early 80s tracks to get the crowd moving on Bleecker Street.

The band began when art school students Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny became intrigued by punk music and performance art. They began to experiment with crude electronics and off beat writing, and the raw homemade electronic sounds they created became the vocabulary of the band's music.

CCIS released "Cakes in the Home" a seven inch vinyl single on Go Go Records in 1979, followed by the twelve inch "Signals From Pier Thirteen" in 1981. The latter contained the club hits "Cardboard Lamb" and "Flying Turns". At that time CCIS performed in clubs and galleries in New York City and Philadelphia, including Hurrah, The Hot Club, and CBGB.
If you're unfamiliar, check out some tracks by the band below. Xeno & Oaklander's slinky goth-inflected synth pop provides the perfect opening soundtrack for the night, and tickets are still available.

I produced, directed and edited this video based on the incredible story boards created by CCIS. Bruce Kaplan was the camera man. Steve Pross from their record company gave us $3,000 to produce the video and it was the last I saw of him.
