It'll on the cover of Rocked By RapeIt is with great sadness that we must announce the death of It'll, the cover cat of ECC's Rocked By Rape 7" single and an all-around awesome studio-wrecker of a feline.

Like Venetian Snares and many other digital music makers, we're quite fond of our cats and this is a big blow to us.  It'll (yes, the contraction for "It Will") had massive paws, with seven claws on each of her two front paws.  This gave her nearly-opposable thumbs and an <ahem> evolutionary advantage as a DJ, which made her the second ECC cover cat (after our first cat Haven't, who made the cover of our Whipped Cream Mixes 7" single).  Her unique look was furthered by her "lazy eye", the result of an eye infection as a kitten, but it was her eccentricitiies that really made her memorable.  Many ECC studios visitors will remember her scaling up a six foot high carpeted doorframe to look you in the eye, or drinking her water scoop-by-scoop with her paws.  Her curiosity was frequently encouraged, and she took full advantage of it.

It'll was 14 years old and leaves tough shoes to fill, no matter how big the paws.  Rest In Peace, It'll.
