October 22: Crash Course In Science (US) & Severed Heads (AUS) LIVE

Red Light Radio, Dark Entries & Paradiso present a night at ADE in Amsterdam with 2 legendary live acts: CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE (US) & SEVERED HEADS (AUS).

Crash Course In Science was founded in 1979 in Philadelphia and has developed a completely unique sound, some call tight ‘minimal synth electro techno body wave’. They avoided the sounds of conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen appliances to augment the distorted guitar, drums and synthesised beats. CCIS has been touring again since a couple of years and we can’t wait to welcome them in Amsterdam.

Severed Heads from Sydney, Australia is also founded in 1979 and are important because they more or less invented the whole industrial-electronic cross-over genre. Apparently they were influencers on NIN and Skinny Puppy. At times they sounded like New Order, Erasure and Throbbing Gristle all ran into each other in a blender and then were poured over some ear splitting noise.

This night is presented by Amsterdam radio station Red Light Radio & record label Dark Entries. The past year Dark Entries released records from both CCIS & Severed Heads and label founder Josh Cheon will DJ at this night, alongside Red Light Radio residents Parrish Smith and Mark Knekelhuis.
