Price: $4.50
"Daniel Dimaggio is the Orson Welles of Princeton, NJ. He is! Look at him; master of the airwaves behind the Strong Little Legs (RIP) & Giants Of Jazz radio programs on WPRB as well as commander of flesh n blood charm peddlers Home Blitz & now this band Car Commercials. For alls I know he might even hate Gallo Wine & fish sticks too. He aint alone on that count! I wonder what his thoughts are concerin Elmyr De Hory? Hmmm....another time perhaps. Home Blitz you might already be familiar with. Many a two-cents was tossed around on their behalf last year, extollin praise as how they ranked alongside Modern Lovers, Half Japanese & Electric Eels as genuine Real McCoys of the American Underground. And I aint sayin they arent or they dont.I chose to abstain from the hyperbole not because I didnt have the change to spare, but on account I thought them was pretty big britches to fill. I dont put much truck in E. Eels n 1/2 Jap comparisons these days. Personally, I think Id be more apt to consider the contents of my wallet readin something like Ron House fronting the Feelies but its that kindve reactionary pontificatin that makes this blog the contentious darling it is, right? Hello? Anyways, w/Car Commercials Dan & co. have seemingly tapped into the wellspring of amateurish goodness what emanates from the source(s) of them Messthetics compilations thatre gracing ears n airwaves (finally) nowadays. Theres a lot to be said for the zero production skills, which in the right hands (their own), Im always a sucker for.True, on occasion they come dangerously close to channelin the precocity of early Daniel Johnston, but most of the time Car Commercials nail it like they was stained by the same varnish & wax buildup as 49 Americans or Crash Action Winners. Id also state for the record that in another time n place (take a wild guess) these guys wouldve lived high on the hog recordin for the Onset/Offset label alongside the likes of Les Bottletops,Toerag, Brothers Gorgonzola & other estimable strangers that have yet to be properly heralded. I know, I know, folks is all the time sayin we are not familiar with these bands you reference. But I am! Theres a fine line between obstinance n ignorance & sometimes in the middle they become twain. What am I gettin at? How about; DONT LET 25 YEARS GO BY BEFORE YOU HEAR THIS CAR COMMERCIALS EP! I cant make it much plainer than that.Theres cassettes too. Collectem all." - Siltblog.

Title: Erics Diary
Format: LP
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Car Commericals are generally uncomfortable; probably shifty-eyed loners that barely leave the basement. Their brand of strictly personal suburban ooze was borne deep within the recesses of New Jersey, just east of I-95. More specifically, this music springs from inside that unspeakable zone deep within the mind where feelings get very messy. David Sutton and Daniel DiMaggio (HOME BLITZ), the duo known as Car Commercials, make mysterious fake rock clatter for heavy petting (yeah right). Following a brief stint as GT Performers, Daniel and David began to make duo recordings as Car Commercials a few years ago, releasing their creepy missives in small runs, mostly for Suttons Leaf Leaf label. The two have tapped into an aspect of nonsensical nihilism that makes Jad Fairs early recordings so alluring, but have forgone his obsession with cartoon horror and monster movies in favor of Faces of Death I thru VI. Erics Diary is the second LP release from Car Commericals, following the out-of-print Judys Dust LP (Cenotaph) from early 2008. Those confounded by Judys Dust will be pleased to know that Erics Diary is where things get...intense. Breathe deep, and prepare to scratch yr head faster than you can say Home Blitz. LP edition of 200 with full color paste-on sleeves." -Soft Abuse. Late 2008 release.

Title: Prisoner of Type
Format: 7"
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"CAR COMMERCIALS explore the personal / loner side of DIY with their singular take on no-chord strum & mumble rock n roll alienation. DAVE SUTTON (CURRENT AMNESIA) & DANIEL DIMAGGIO (HOME BLITZ) have created another soundtrack of suburban boredom and terminal paranoia; the stifling, mundane source of this music (geographically and psychologically speaking) is mirrored and regurgitated in these tunes. Where once they tread a formless, lurching path, Car Commercials now tromp along with more cohesive abandon. Moments of spontaneity and pure attitude are delivered in restrained spurts and jabs, and their chops seem better, too. All in all, Prisoner of Type extends the duos unsettling qmoves into (slightly) less rudimentary corners. Its a savory listen. Hand printed b&w sleeves by ZAK SALLY (LOW) in Minneapolis. Limited edition of 300 copies." -Soft Abuse
