Carsickness- 1979 - 1982 CD. Carsickness are one of the best and most obscure US bands of late Seventies! They belt out no wave art punk with a snearing punk attitude and unique social criticism. This intriguing Pittsburgh band’s lineup includes two keyboardists (one doubling on guitar, the other on violin) and a saxophone player, in addition to a singer/guitarist, bassist and drummer. Their ability to arrange their music in a number of directions makes Carsickness a complex force; only Joe Sopa’s dramatic vocals maintain any stylistic consistency from track to track. Without being identifiably derivative, Carsickness draws bits from new wave, modern rock, jazz and other sources, using flexible rhythmic intensities and thoughtful lyrics to drive the songs. Troublesome, yet impressive and invigorating. For fans of Screamers, Mars, DNA and Devo.
