ßßß Crash Course in Science ßßß

Crash Course in Science (CCIS) has developed a completely unique sound some call tight ‘minimal synth electro techno body wave’. 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. Several appearances on the cult television show “The Uncle Floyd Show” increased their visibility in the early ‘80’s.

In 2007 and 2009 CCIS released twelve inch singles on Terence Fixmer’s labels “Planete Rouge” and “Jupiter” in France. These two singles feature the tracks “Cardboard Lamb” and “Flying Turns” and contain remixes by Vitalic, David Carretta, Terence Fixmer, Danton Eeprom, and the band themselves. Vinyl On Demand Records in Germany released the “Crash Course in Science” box set in the fall of 2009 which contained their debut album “Near Marineland,” as well as an album of live recordings and re-pressings of previous singles, plus bonus tracks.

Since the release of the box set, CCIS has performed several concerts in Europe including Bimfest 2009 in Antwerp and the Rewind–mini-Fest in Gent in 2010, accompanied by original producer John Wicks and Andrea Beeman, The Enchantress of Bioluminosity.

ßßß Remote Control ßßß

Native to the Philadelphia region, Remote Control is a species of the Blue Wave family. The body of Remote Control is divided into three distinct parts, each uniquely formed to aid in its unusual mating call; and thusly its proliferation and continued survival in the harsh environs of its natural habitat. Its distribution continues to become more widespread, but it can often be spotted in Western Philadelphia. Remote Control’s coloration varies according to season, but tends to be predominantly dark. It is nocturnal and almost entirely herbivorous, but when necessary will feed on whatever it can capture and devour whole. As a species of the Blue Wave family, Remote Control’s behavior is docile unless provoked, with the exception of it’s mating ritual which reaches loud volumes and involves an elaborate dance where the participants appear as though they are weeping.
