Mystery Test Record

This record comes without labels or cover, so I have no idea what it is. Seems to be a test pressing of sorts. One side has typical test record stuff, with signals, a chunk of classical music and a bland pop song. Don’t know what happened and why, but on the flip side of this there’s something entirely different. First some electronic buzz travels from one speaker to the other to make way for a drummer who does a couple bars of a club type rhythm. That’s abandoned quickly and what follows is a free, effect laden drum solo accompanied by electronics. This long freak-out reminds of Roy Porter’s Drums for Daryl. It seems to have landed on vinyl by some happy accident.
