Possibly the most bizarre Elvis cover on YouTube:



I like it. He's got quite a number of covers, including this gem:

Ross Bellenoit is a musician based in Philadelphia, PA. He has recorded and performed a number of EC covers and seems to have a particular love of Blood & Chocolate.

On the charmingly titled "Future Corpses" project , he plays a very passable version of "All The Rage", although maybe a little "light" in the delivery. See what you think: it is track 6 here:

He played a show back in November 2013 which was the whole of Blood & Chocolate. See the poster here:

More recently he played a show with his band The Deceptions (a bit like The Imposters?) which included Tokyo Storm Warning (from Blood & Chocolate and Lovable from King Of America. These are not easy songs to play, and I think he makes a fair fist of it, see what you think...


Tokyo Storm Warning

Lovable

Someone should buy Kevin Monko some cufflinks.
