Hello, Austin Texas:  Although we've never managed to make a show happen there, it seems Austin already has a taste for our brand of evolved mashups -- or soon will.  That's thanks to KAOS Radio Austin over-active DJ Slander Bob, who selected The Evolution Control Committee to feature on his 12/13/09 Artist Showcase -- 2 hours amidst an astonishing 14 hour shift (!) he fills starting early Sunday mornings.  The feature airs 3AM-5AM CST early Sunday, December 13, 2009 -- just a few hours from now -- so we're hoping those who miss it will be able to listen or download it from the show's archives after it airs.

He certainly did his homework -- we offered him brand new unreleased tracks from our upcoming album, and he'd already gotten them!  Now that's our kind of radio show host...

Trademark G. / The Evolution Control Committee on Slander Bob's Artist Showcase 12.13.09 3AM-5AM CST

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Trademark Gunderson aka Trademark G. The inventor of The Mash-up, The Thimbleton, and The Wheel of Mashup.

You'll hear some of The Evolution Control Committee's classic tracks and well as some rarities. Snippets from some of Trademark's radio projects, spinning some of his favorite tunes as well explaining the methods of his musical madness and songs from his alter-persona DJ Pantshead. Mixed by and edited by Slander Bob.

Check out his weekly radio show " The Sound Of Plaid" every Tuesday over @ 8PM-10PM PST

Interview on Night Air (Sydney, Australia)

Following our Sydney, Australia appearance at the Liquid Architecture festival we met up Brent Clough, host of the Australian Broadcasting Company radio show Night Air for lengthy and enjoyable interview and on-air performance.  The distilled version is now about to hit the airwaves, part 1 of a show pairing The ECC with part 2, Bob Dylan... an unexpected pairing, but we take it as a quite the compliment.

ECC and the full Bob

Part 1: The Evolution Control Committee under the leadership of Trademark G. (aka Mark Gunderson) has been challenging copyright laws since 1986, risking millions in copyright violation fines for what the ECC calls 'music'. The ECC is credited with the creation of the Mash Up or Bastard Pop genre of blended pop songs, a style popular with young listeners today. In this session TradeMark G talks about the ECC's work and demonstrates one of its recent products, the VidiMasher 3000.


Although non-Australians like us can listen online, we're at a disadvantage on its air time: 8:30pm Sunday evening, which would be 2:30am early Sunday morning for us in California.  Fortunately you'll be able to listen to the show on their webpage which also includes transcripts of the show, or just listen now below.
