Album Notes
Let the reviews speak for themselves:

So what does Pat Metheny Group drummer Paul Wertico do with his time off? Well, along with Gordon James and Jeff Czech, he makes time for Earwax Control, a trio that is literally indescribable. Sometimes, it is even literally music, otherwise, it resides somewhere around the intersection of jazz, performance art, Samuel Beckett, and an electronic kaffeeklatsch. In recent years I've nearly attended nearly a third of Earwax Control's concerts - of course, there have only been about a half dozen - and I've witnessed instrumentation ranging from keyboards and guitars to television sets. In a sense, it's really a garage band - assuming, that is, that they have garages on Venus. - Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader's Critic's Choice
Away from his duties with the Pat Metheny Group, drummer Paul Wertico pursues raucous, free-flowing improvisations with Chicago-based Earwax Control. Wertico's credits include "weird noises and feedback." He's also the center of gravity, maintaining pulses and grooves, surrounded by Jeff Czech's guitar and violin, and Gordon James' keyboards. Healthy doses of distortion and "found sounds" intrude, often changing the direction of the performance. Earwax Control balances creativity with a sense of fun. - Downbeat
