By augmenting their sound with more synthesizers, electronics, and drum machines, the Cars' fourth release, Shake It Up, helped bridge their hard rock-based early work (1978's The Cars) with the futuristic-pop direction of 1984's Heartbeat City. The band's sound may have been evolving with each succeeding album, but Ric Ocasek was still writing compelling new wave compositions despite all the change, many of which would ultimately become rock & roll standards.

Before Cars is a pop/rock band that features the original songs of Chad Channing, the former drummer of the band Nirvana, most known for his work on the album Bleach. Chad’s songs are an eclectic mix of styles ranging both lyrically and musically from quirky and light-hearted to deep and introspective. Unlike the more straight ahead hard rock driven Walk Back release in 2009, the band has evolved to more of an acoustic guitar based style on their latest album, reflecting the direction the band has gone with their live performances. Some of Chad’s musical Influences are the Young Marble Giants, early David Bowie and obscure 60’s and 70’s hits such as “Like Hope for Happiness” by the Soft Machine.

It’s been nearly 40 years since the Cars played their first area show at the Cleveland Agora. The show was broadcast live by WMMS-FM and has circulated in bootleg form for decades since then. Rhino Records executive John Hughes, an Elyria native who now lives in the California area, says that Live At The Agora, 1978 is the latest wave in a reissue campaign that began last year. “I remember the show and I remember the WMMS live concert broadcasts. I thought that there was a Cars show out there and sure enough, I went to the vault with our team and found this tape. There it was. We took a listen to it and were amazed,” he says. “I think that people will be really pleasantly surprised when they hear the energy of this show. It’s very early on in their career. I think it’s probably one of the higher profile shows they’d ever done outside of the Boston area since getting signed. I’m not kidding when I say that it’s kind of a fierce live set.”
