HUMAN ADULT BAND
"Last'd"
(Polyhedron Choir Records)

Lathe cut 7" record or Download (Maybe 30 Made/green translucent record)

Approx 13 min of bad mic noise / jams by Human Adult Band. Released in NZ, a place duly represented in our collections. Newly captured in 2023. Guest Guitarist, Jeff Schroeck, who's traveled the nation playing punk stages everywhere. If you prowled NJ in the early aughts, you were likely to catch him charming the 'Parlor' basement crowd on Friday nights or as a member of the house band at the old Asbury Lanes. Quite a ripper.

ANKYLOSAURUS / JOE+N

"Willfully Ceased to Exist"
(Carbon Records)

Split CD or Download (150 Made/full color slim eco-case)

T of Human Adult Band, playing solo bass drone metal under th' solo moniker, Ankylosaurus and Joe Carbon of Pengo, playing primitive gtr, violin and drums under th' solo moniker Joe+N. Thick slabs of bass noise and amp worship from Ankylosaurus. Phaser virtigo and Tony Conrad influenced jams from Joe+N. This split is akin to a close-up photograph of a lungfish mistaken for a distant moon's surface. These recordings share th' same power cosmic as wielded by th' sky-rider of the spaceways.

"Slog Quest Crosstime"
(Feeding Tube Records)

LP Record w/ download code (200 Made/full color jacket with insert liner notes)

Our full length Feeding Tube Records debut. Some cow punk 'singles', a lethargic death rocker, a couple metalic with a groove long jammers. This album resplendent in noise and th' weird, but it's th' most 'rock' to date..and our band telepathy seems to have gotten better fer sure. Some of you older folks may recognise some reworked riffs, but there are def a lot of surprises and a lot of new material. Guest appearances by friends from Sad Tomorrows, Resounding No and th' Ergs! Outstanding early weird cartoon meets 80's toys art from Jaime Rvrs Mrcy and a magical drawing from Justin Mank. If you want to get yr copy from us, don't sit on it we only got 50 copies (and it may crack or smudge if you do).

Earthworm / Human Adult Band
"Happy Horrordays"
(dihd Records)

7" record (w/ download code)
(Includes Horrorday Greetings Card/limited to 200 copies)

Split 7" between Earthworm and Human Adult Band. Earthworm is post-punk / noise rock with a heavy beat. Earthworm does 2 Hallowe'en season rippers. The inspiration for the lyrics of Earthworm's 'A Very Important Discovery' came from the mad scientists scenes in classic Universal Pictures horror and sci-fi films. On 'Beastly People', we're not sure what D. was shouting , neither was he, but it was frightening. The Human Adult Band track 'Rusty Roll of Quarters' is Human Adult Band's stab at an X-Mas tune. It was recorded for an exclusive debut on Jon Solomon's 25 Hour X-Mas special 2016 on WPRB, Princeton, NJ. Justin Mank wrote and slurred the lyrics on this one. Right before recording it, he told us the music should sound like an early Lou Reed tune. So, art rock, maybe, post-rock / noise rock, for sure.

"Sonic Enlightenment"
(Third Uncle Records)

LP (w/ download code)
(Color vinyl/limited to 300 copies)

The A side of this strange 2018 LP is a 14 minute jammer take of 'Easton Ave Laundromat' featuring a 7 piece Adult Band. The track features bass thru a smooth Franken Ampeg B-15 flip top, a few gnarly guitars, ice age flute, lap steel & two drummers (King Darves is back in th' band!) The B-Side features get-on-the-freak-bus noise rock odds and ends captured on tape from 2011-2015. Side B includes an instrumental tribute to our favorite Florida skuzz-bonk scene. "Human Adult Band is the type of outfit that still gets me excited about delightfully odd music...distinct blend of no wave, experimental noise & fearless originality." explains Rich Quinlan of Jersey Beat. "Don't let anyone tell you that New Jersey ain't freaky" -Matt Korvette. "No investment in musical history, or markets, or the pleasure of the listener. It's only interested in pursuing the compulsions of it's own weirdness" -Jonathan Shaw, Dusted.
