Emergency Pizza Party
Orlando, Florida (USA)
Emergency Pizza Party, also well-known as "EPP," is an indie Hip Hop group based out of Orlando, Florida. Over the years, they've switched around a few members, but their current, awesome line-up is Benjamin Bear, MC Wreckshin, Betty Rebel, Sir-Up, Funky49, and The Shinobi MC.
EPP’s lyrics and content consists of references to comics, movies, video games, and anything generally considered to be part of nerd or geek culture. Emergency Pizza Party are known to have a very unorthodox, sometimes silly, and wholly unique sound that is uncommon within the Nerdcore community.
In February of 2008, EPP joined the ranks of many other musicians to contribute to the 2008-RPM challenge. This contest would mark the release of their first full length LP, "Ughuuhghhhh," which received many positive reviews from critics and listeners alike.
Later that year, the band produced "Zombie Emergency Defense," or "Z.E.D." The theme of this album was inspired by an idea from a local Orlando business, A Comic Shop, for an organization designed to train citizens in case of a zombie apocalypse. The album was done in the spirit of a 1930’s radio drama and consisted of a narrator, skits, and songs to tell the story. A Comic Shop heavily promoted the album which was was released Tuesday, October 27th, and EPP performed it live in its entirety at A Comic Shop’s annual Halloween show “Zombie Dance.” It received stronger reviews than the first album and made their next release highly anticipated.
After an almost two year release hiatus, Emergency Pizza Party is back with what promises to be the first of two albums for the year 2010 which, without a doubt, is their best material to date. EPP and Scrub Club have teamed up to get these hot new tracks blowing up your stereo, so get the new album "Shine Avenue" NOW to see how much EPP has evolved!
