Some blame ”The Whipped Cream Mixes” – ECC’s 1993 7” that fused Public Enemy with Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass – for spawning the computer-collage ”mash-up” movement. But Committee spokesman Mark Gunderson, a record geek from Columbus, Ohio, is less interested in Frankenstein popcraft than in culture-jamming slapstick. Exhibit A: his follow-up single ”Rocked by Rape,” which arranged countless Dan Rather sound bites into an apocalyptic rap riding a sample from AC/DC’s ”Back in Black.” It’s the money shot on this long-brewing second album, which turns garage-sale detritus, voice-mail jabber, and pop shrapnel into a musical comedy record where the absurd and the sophomoric duke it out. EMBED MATES We hope ECC are working on a postwar ”Rocked by Rape” sequel, featuring CNN’s Aaron Brown.
