“Fuctifano proves that fun punk ain’t dead – or it’s just yet another monumental piss take – but f—–d if I know mate. 5 out of 5 points!” – BattleHelm zine UK
“”Fuctiano” exposes PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES as extreme as it hasn’t been for a long time and comes along with songs that simply leave you speechless and sweep you away.” – OX zine
“The new album “Fuctifano” is from the beginning somehow a typical PTTB album, full of self-irony, but also with the usual dose of social and political criticism. And it tops “That Shallot” from 2017 once again. Sometimes the songs are more melodic, sometimes more pissed off and clearly much more aggressive. “Fuctifano” is strong, and the punk rock veterans of Peter And The Test Tube Babies are far from done in 2020.” – Count Your Bruises Mag
“The ingenuity to harmonize the individual songs is almost boundless. “Fuctifano” proves them right and Peter And The Test Tube Babies are definitely worth a discovery for every (punk-affine) rock music lover, if you are still not familiar with the band.” – RockCastle

‘Crap Californian Punk Band’: https://youtu.be/5lzZ0t0NMv8
In 1978, seventeen year old punk rockers Peter Bywaters and Del Strangefish decided to form a punk band and PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES are born. After a couple of rehearsals they made their first recording ‘Elvis Is Dead’ which appeared on the ‘Vaultage ‘78’ compilation of Brighton new wave bands. Radio 1 DJ John Peel loved the song instantly and offered the band a live session. The success was breathtaking and PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES became one of the hottest unsigned bands in the UK overnight.
Their first single ‘Banned From The Pubs’ followed fast, and fans and press freaked out in equal measure. From that moment everything went crazy; sold out concert halls in England and Europe and their big success in the media pushed their debut album ‘Pissed And Proud’ to #1 in the U.K. independent charts. Directly after that, their 2nd album ‘The Mating Sounds Of South American Frogs’ was released in 1983 – a must-have for every record collection – and sold more than 100,000 copies, resulting in invitations to perform from far and wide. THE TEST TUBES BABIES have continued to play shows all over the world and cemented their status as one of the most brilliant and funniest live bands in punk rock culture. A few bass players and drummers have served their time in the band, but the songwriters Peter and Del have always remained the foundation and together they wrote and recorded a long list of classic albums like ‘Soberphobia’ (1986), and the brilliant ‘Supermodels’ (1995).
In 2018 PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES signed with Arising Empire Records recruiting Nick Abnett and Sam Fuller on bass and drums respectively resulting in their now critically-acclaimed album »That Shallot« which went on to receive 4 and 5 Star reviews worldwide.
Fast forward to the present day…. Against all odds the band have pulled the rabbit out of the hat and come up trumps again with their best record to date the 14-track »FUCTIFANO« (a phrase you may hear from a Scotsman whilst asking for directions ‘F***ed If I Know’). The first single is the high-energy track ‘Facebook Loser’ – a sad tale of the insane world of a Facebook addict (we all know one). While the second single is accompanied by an amazing video for ‘Queen of F***ing Everything’ filmed by Mark Richards who directed the ‘Crap Californian Punk Band’ video which is currently at 80,000 hits on YouTube.
On the 6th March 2020 punk rock legends PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES are proud to present to you their latest and greatest set of recordings »FUCTIFANO« released on Arising Empire.
