Experiments

Here in the Experiments area you'll find all the brow-furrowing, chin-stroking activities that The ECC has been up to. Mischievous MP3s, vituperous videos, cued and ready for instant consumption and sardonic satisfaction.

Note the categories to the left. If you want only music, click MP3s. If you want only videos, there's that too. You can also peek into our Testing Area to hear beta tests and unfinished experiments that we're playing around with.  And if you're wondering just what the hell we were thinking when we made those experiments, you might find the answers in our blog.  Recent additions to all four categories are listed below.

Ahhh, a Sound Of Plaid theme worth saving up... "Cream Of The Crap" is the section of records in the ECC archive that holds the best thrift scores of all: album that only cost a dollar but ended up worth quite a bit more.  Just to make this episode creamier (and hopefully not crappier), we invited some friends over to join us -- thanks to all of them, and especially to Tumbleweed (KALX), Robert (Kreamy 'Lectric Santa), and Owen (Club Vertigo) for adding their own crap to they... uh... pile.

In this episode of The Sound Of Plaid: Beatles And Other Animals.  We listen to a recent performance of finely chopped Beatles (or at least of their music) surrounded by a veritable zoo of other animal-related tunes: Penguins (funky, and otherwise), Rats (catching; in my room...), Pussies (missing cats, and missing "cat"), Dogs (atomic; friendly; lusty), all bookended by Turtles... got the picture?

Still haven't got the picture?  Then watch this video of the finale of that Beatle-choppy performance:
