C.C.C.P. (not to be confused with the rock band CCCP featuring singer John Payne) is a German synthpop[1] act led by Rasputin Stoy. They were best known for their 1986 instrumentals "American-Soviets I" and "American-Soviets II", released by Clockwork Germany. This six-minute song themed on the Cold War became a hit on the US Billboard charts, the German Top 75 and other European charts. Their follow-up singles ("Made in Russia" and "Orient Express") hit the number one and number two spots on official music charts in the same week (Hong Kong, Benelux, France and Spain). Their 1990 song "Don't Kill The Rainforest" was also a minor alternative radio hit. Their band name C.C.C.P. stands for Союз Советских Социалистических Республик, which is Russian for U.S.S.R..

C.C.C.P. released their seventh album, Quantic Shamanism Through Digital Western featuring Meyhiel, in January 2008 on the art label MillePlateauxMedia.

Today the group now only consists of the original band leader Rasputin Stoy, a.k.a. Rai Streubel and Frank Schendler (ex-Beat-A-Max).
