Crash Course In Science: Signals From Pier Thirteen 12" EP

Crash Course In Science: Signals From Pier Thirteen 12″ EP

Holy grail time, kiddos. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue of the only 12″ EP Crash Course In Science ever released. (There was a CCIS box set a few years ago, but it’s super limited and expensive and you’ll probably never own it.) Vintage-as-it-gets minimal-wave that predated pretty much everything. Well, other than their previous 7″ from 1979. “Cardboard Lamb” was the track that got rediscovered by electroclash kids, and was reissued and remixed by Vitalic and a few others, but here’s the original in all its glory. “Crashing Song” is a buzzy instrumental which swoops as much as it crashes. “Flying Turns” is my absolute favorite track here, it’s stark and repetitive and paranoid and absolutely never gets old, I could listen to it on repeat forever. “Factory Forehead” is the most brutal track here, starting with proto-Wolf Eyes thrashing and then adding a fast minimal beat and several layers of paranoid buzzing synths and vocals. Super brutal, super ahead of its time. Totally classic, 100%.
