Crash Course in Science (CCIS) is an electronic musical group that was formed in 1979. 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 analog recording devices. The instruments gave way to crude drum machines and ‘Frankenstein’ type homemade instruments. CCIS was ready to record the Signals From Pier Thirteen. Signals From Pier Thirteen was released in the U.S.A. and England in 1981. This 12” EP contained the songs ‘Cardboard Lamb’ and ‘Flying Turns’ which are two of the bands most recognizable tracks. 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. Now Planete Rouge releases this high class collector record with 3 brand new remixes. One remix made by the Crash Course in Science band themselves in 2006!!! Amazing up-to-date remix done by the original members, which sounds incredibly like the music of now. Another remix is made by Vitalic , which is gonna be a classic hymn for clubs as always, when Vitalic reworks a track. And the last remix is done by David Carretta who gives another dimension to the original track. Crash Course In Science has been many times sampled by the artists of today — now you know where the original comes from.
