Beatlerape live @ Big City Orchestra 30th Anniversary Show

Attention, open in a new window.On January 31st, 2010 Big City Orchestra celebrated their 30th anniversary as a sound-emitting entity, collecting 27 performers to show off BCO's wide-ranging tastes (and their prowess for suckering others to do their show for them).  Three such suckers joined forces to reinterpret BCO's 1994 Staalplaat album, Beatlerape: Wobbly, Phineas Narco, and The Evolution Control Committee.

The trio mapped out a pretty stunning 20 minute set, mixing and mashing Beatles recordings into remixed wonders bearing no resemblence to the original album.  Nope, none at all.  Good thing too, 'cuz this live session might well be better than its original namesake.

Listen or download the show:

As the grand finale, TradeMark G. channeled Ringo Starr to lip-sync "What Would You Think If I Sang Autotune?", a track from The ECC's upcoming album All Rights Reserved.  Ever seen someone lip-sync off-key?  Watch TradeMark do just that:


What Would You Think If I Sang Autotune?

The Evolution Control Committee's TradeMark G. does the impossible: he manages to lip-sync off-key. Was it the fake mustache and wig? Whatever it was, it was for the finale of the Big City Orchestra 30th Anniversary show, backed by Wobbly (left) and Phineas Narco (right). Filmed by Mara Arrowood at Cafe Du Nord (San Francisco) on January 31st, 2010. From the upcoming Evolution Control Committee album All Rights Reserved. More info at: http://Evolution-Control.Com
