Biography:

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.
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.

Their first single, “Cakes in the Home”, `was a 7" record that introduced listeners’ to the noisy, humorous, unpredictable world that is Crash Course in Science. It also included the “classic” 'Kitchen Motors' as well as 'Mechanical Breakdown'. Their 7" record was released in the USA on 'GO GO Records' and in England on Rough Trade in 1979. Kitchen Motors was also included on the “Machines”compilation on Virgin Records in 1980.
‘Crash Course in Sciences' appeal increased after Their numerous appearances on the cult television program, ”The Uncle Floyd Show" and live concert appearances.

Following the release of the first record and tour dates, Dale Feliciello, the mastermind of Crash Courses in Sciences' homemade gear, was hard at work on a new series of, one of a kind instruments that would lead CCIS in a new direction. A darker, more sinister sound evolved with the humor still intact. At this point CCIS was ready to record 'Signals From Pier Thirteen' which was released in the USA and England in 1981. The songs 'Cardboard Lamb' and 'Flying Turns' quickly became club favorites during the early 80's. This record has been regarded as influential to the techno industrial genres and was an early inception of what is now known as the ‘electro’ sound. This record is still highly sought after by collectors and fans today.

In September 2017 their long awaited and second studio album Situational Awareness was released and critically acclaimed around the world!
