C.C.C.C - Chaos is the Cosmos [Cold Spring Records - 2007]Coming in not long after the interesting if a little mixed box set of early material here Japanese noise/psychedelic terrorist C.C.C.C offer up their first new material in ten years and take you on a fiery head melting, many layered noise trip that you wont forget in a hurry.
The album consist of one long 43 minute track which slides, rips and burns through all manner of sound and textural changes along it’s devastating path. Going from clearly defined guitar feed back and sculpturing, to amped-up and fucked-upwith melodic samples. To ear drum scoring walls of noise, whopping clouds of psychedelic electronics, to rhythmic bombardments of sound. With Every now and then sensual, haunting & sometimes disturbing Japanese female voices and vocals appearing out of the splendid chaos. There really is no sonic filling on display here, it literal rips you’re off your feet from the opening moments throwing into C.C.C.C demented and overloaded soundworld, leaving you 40 minutes later breathless with your mind reeling and your ears ringing eager to jump back into the beautiful maelstrom of sound once more.
A great overdue work from one of the legends of the noise scene- showing that there still firing on all cylinders in pure loudness, inventiveness and downright brutality of sound. Roger Batty
