Philadelphia Band Crash Course in Science from the Lee Paris/PCHA benefit show – Houston Hall, U of Penn 05/03/96
The show was a benefit in honor of the recently passed DJ Lee Pairs and proceeds went to the Philadelphia Community Health Alternatives (PCHA) which was a health clinic that served the local lesbian and gay community in the 80’s.
Crash Course in Science are an American post-punk band. The band was formed in 1979 in Philadelphia by Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny. They avoided the sounds of conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen appliances to augment distorted guitar, drums and synthesised beats.
For more information on Crash Course in Science – see this interview from the Key
Philly band started in 1983 by Dan McKay on guitar, bass & synth and Paul Della Pelle (Ruin, Helios Creed, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine, Nik Turner ) on drums, percussion & vocals as an experimental music performance project. Bassist Clennie “Pop” Lewis was added shortly after then they released this 7″ in 1984. Multi-instrumentalist Doug Hilsinger (Bomb, Gift Horse) on guitar, synth, drums & vocals was added to the group in 1986 to round out the sound and to provide a more dynamic live stage show.
Check out their Reverbnation page, that I stole the band info above from.
