Available music by

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

7" record (w/ download code)
(Includes Human Adult Band 2" button/limited to 200 copies)

Split 7" between Earthworm and Human Adult Band. Earthworm is post-punk / noise rock meets d-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 NEW strange 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.

7" Record Compilation
(Color vinyl/limited to 400 copies)

This is a group owned compilation made by bands and artists brought together in the eclectic underground of New Brunswick, NJ after the turn of the century. A collective spirit brings brand new tracks by each artist/group. Side A offers the folk side of the spectrum. Side B offers the out-rock side of the spectrum. "...very easy to replay, which I've been doing again and again; long may the Spirit of New Brunswick fly on." exclaims Larry Fuzz-o Doleman of Blastitude Blog and webzine. "Another fine release housed in a great sleeve and well worth picking up." states Simon Lewis and Andrew Young of Terrascopic Rumbles. "This scene has been perplexing me for years. In the best way possible...A very solid spin" confirms Byron Coley in WIRE Magazine. Zoooid artwork by Kotar.

Human Adult Band
'Hearing Damage Sessions'
(Heat Retention/Third Uncle Records)

(download code included/limited to 500 copies/hand silk screened jackets)

Cold recording sound, plodding bass lines, wandering guitars, reserved drumming, Christian and monster movie references in the lyrics and B&W new wave-ish album art, yup the Marvelous Records store clerk was right, this is our death rock album. "New Jersey's finest, Human Adult Band, unleashes a brilliant new 9 song LP with sludgy, propulsive noise oozing from every track" writes Jason Henn of Honey Radar. Rock-a-Rolla Magazine(UK) explains,
"[These are] some seriously ugly tunes."
