Deep down from the Hamamatsu basements, amidst smoke and dark shadows, comes another epic masterwork of destructive power from the Japanese psychedelic freakout heroes Up-Tight! A glorious incursion into a vortex of massive fuzzed guitars and reverb vocals, mantric drums and menacing bass pulsations touching the extremes of bludgeoning noise and delicate beauty.
“The Beginning Of The End” was originally released as a scarce LP edition on 8mm Records in 2009 and – after more than a decade – sees the light of the day on CD for the first time ever, fully remastered by Aoki Tomoyuki himself. Housed in our custom tip-on mini-LP gatefold packaging displaying unique and new artwork, plus OBI strip.
BOX SET Ess-029b
The Beginning Of The End is also available as an exquisitely elaborated and strictly limited handmade boxset employing hand-carving, textures and painting explorations.
Housed inside are the gatefold standard edition, a large poster printed via woodcut technique, circular psychedelic shapes and a very special object – a REAL kaleidoscope that will treat your mind for hours!
As a bonus disc for this set, the band prepared a not to be missed expanded, freakout live version of the album on CDR presented in a custom silkscreened packaging.
A download card for the standard edition is also included exclusively as part of this boxset.
