Excited to announce that a brand new Testube track was just released on the CRL Studios benefit compilation Homeostasis! This is for a great cause, benefiting the World Health Organization, and I'm definitely in good company, so check it out.
I've just learned that DSBP has been reissuing some of their early compilations as digital downloads on Bandcamp, with bonus tracks and new artwork. Some of these include rare tracks by Testube and other projects that I was involved with from 1997-2003. The reissues have been added to the official Testube discography, and you can download them via the DSBP Bandcamp page.
Thanks in part to heavy exposure on popular Youtube channels like Dark5, I've been seeing a resurgence of interest in my earliest Testube recordings. This prompted last year's 20 Year Anniversary re-release of the original Testube demo titled Soul. Following in those same nostalgic footsteps is Volume 1 of the Anomalies collection, which features lost tracks from the early days of the Testube project, including the two original debut tracks recorded live by myself and Bryan Elsloo. These two tracks - titled "Shango" and "Ritual" - appeared on the very first Testube self-titled cassette release on UEF Records. Also included in this new collection are six previously unreleased songs and four rare remixes/revisions of tracks that appeared in their original form on the Soul and Second Soul albums. All tracks in this first edition of the Anomalies collection were taken from the original analog master recordings, and given a minor bit of remastering. Special thanks to those who have rekindled an interest in these lost recordings from over 20 years ago!
