Berkeley, California rock experimentalists Cars Get Crushed produce such dynamic, varied sounds that reviewers are often at a loss for how to describe them. Featuring ex-reach out, Fade & John henry west members, their music features early Pink Floyd-style prog, spaced-out Sun Ra-influenced jams, noisy avant-garde rock, aggressive post-hardcore and gentle indie pop. Synths, flute loops, samples, and spacey blips and bleeps find their way into the basic rock setup, defining Cars Get Crushed's oddly intriguing style.
Though virtually unknown elsewhere, the group is an underground favorite in the Bay Area. They've released three full-lengths, Drag Explosive (1995), Blue & West (1996), and Evolution to Trust (1999). They also released several singles and EP's, including a Self-Titled 7" (1996) and the Warped Speed b/w Hey Sister Vampire 7" (1997).
