CCCC - Test Tube Fantasy Extended Edition now available!

C.C.C.C. - Test Tube Fantasy - Extended Edition LP

C.C.C.C. are legends of Japanese noise, and many consider their 1994 record Test Tube Fantasy to be their finest work, an unrelenting waterfall of psychedelic sound that stands as a genre classic. Originally released as a 7-inch on Ant-Zen, in 2020 C.C.C.C. member Hiroshi Hasegawa revisited the master tape that provided the source material for Test Tube Fantasy and remastered this longer performance into two 20+ minute tracks. This is an entirely reimagined version of Test Tube Fantasy that contains the core of what made the 7-inch so powerful.

New Forces is pleased to make this extended edition of Test Tube Fantasy available as an LP. On this record the concentrated eruption of the original 7-inch is given more room to expand as the performers slowly build a white-hot avalanche of sonic euphoria. For 43 blissful minutes C.C.C.C. transport the listener outside space and time. This is a fully immersive record that wipes out all other sensation, leaving only pure noise.

Just like the original 7-inch, this extended LP edition is pressed on clear vinyl and housed in a silver inner sleeve and jacket designed by John Wiese based on the original artwork. Each record includes a download code.
