Album review of All Rights Reserved in Rock & Roll Report

Rock & Roll Report logoMatheson Kamin reviewed The ECC's All Rights Reserved album for Rock & Roll Report, comprehensively reviewing every single track -- thanks Matheson!  Read the full review -- or at least this excerpt:

Once upon a time in the music industry, there used to be something called the “novelty album,” a release that contained something unique or unusual that would be outside of “the norm”. Whether it was an album of music from another country recorded in another language, someone making a demonstration that could be described without the need for visual examples, or simply humorous music that would not fit into the “pop” category, the “novelty album” was always strange or unique. This is one category that seems to have all but disappeared from today’s music industry…….well, maybe not entirely.

Enter All Rights Reserved, the 2011 release from The Evolution Control Committee.The Evolution Control Committee consists of TradeMark Gunderson and Christy “Frillypants” Brand. Together, Gunderson and Brand have created an album in All Rights Reserved that can only be categorized as a “novelty album,” especially since the entire release was constructed using other people’s music to create the songs contained within the release. What else would you call the album but “novelty”?

The Real Congregation logoThe Real Congregation is a radio show on Nerdy Show Networks hosted by Marc With a C.  And the show loves, Loves, LOVES The ECC!  So much so that The ECC's All Rights Reserved album got picked as the show's Favorite Record of 2011 -- and -- the ECC song "Pertaining To The Beat" is now the show's new theme song!  Both those announcements can be heard in their 01/17/12 episode, part two of their 2011 countdown.  Thanks guys; we're flattered!  Enough so that we recently recorded an interview with them, which aired on their 01/31/12 episode.

Kooba Radio logoAlso, thanks to all ECC fans who voted for us to be Kooba Radio Band Of The Year!  Voting is closed and Kooba has posted their countdown episode announcing the results.  Who won?  While The ECC didn't win (awww!) your votes pushed us up to finish in third place... a good show!  Considering the tough competition like chap-hop superstar Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer (who won the vote), taking #3 ain't so shabby.

LA Weekly logoOur recent LA show at the Echoplex with Mutaytor earned a kind review in the LA Weekly blogs.  We were just talking about how the LA show's turnout was a bit disappointing and were wondering whether we really made an impact... it's really gratifying to read this review and know that we actually did.  Many thanks to the author of the review, L. J. Williamson!

Live Review: Evolution Control Committee at Echoplex

Over the Weekend

WHO: Evolution Control Committee
WHERE: Echoplex
WHEN: 5/13/11

If there was any justice in this world, evolution would never be dismissed by a large portion of the population as "just a theory," and Evolution Control Committee would be more popular than god.
