Human Adult Band
'The Movers Brought Rainbows'
(Spleen Coffin Tapes)

Cassette (Paste on art. Stamped shells.)

"Long-running Jersey outfit Human Adult Band come to us after dropping a sickening array of no-fi noise rock and damaged art punk tapes and records upon the public. And yet, The Movers Brought Rainbows is probably their most abstract and alien work to date. While the guitar/bass/drums/voice formation is still the genesis of these recordings, at its core feedback and reverb are the star players here. Source sessions recorded at various locations are unapologetically run through the ringer, subjected to tortuous electronic post processing, and what reaches your ears is an almost atmospheric level of abstraction as echoing drums, voices, amplifier feedback, and electronics are all mashed up and smeared together." - Spleen Coffin.

West Jersey Airport / Exhibit: A /
Sweet Pith / Relief

"LAM Benefit: Live in Lambertville"
(Unchanged Mind tapes)

Cassette (color j card, Rhomdamine Red shell)

Field recordings of 4 artists/groups during a NJ river town porch fest. West Jersey Airport is a heavy psych / proto-grunge trio w/ members of Human Adult Band. Exhbit: A is an electronics and static guitar no wave band with orgins in the original NYC no wave scene. Sweet Pith is a sonically morphing duo/group usually featuring experimental jaw harp but this time accopanying abstract lyrics and minimalist guitar performed by the duo's other regular member. Relief is a noise-synth project by Unchanged Mind Recs label head, whom did a lot of work on Adult Band's latest 'Movers' material. The money from this tape goes to "help put on more and more diverse live music in the area."
$15 (postage paid in the U.S.)

"Sci-Fi Holiday Vids"
(d.i.h.d. tapes)

CDR (made to order, xerox sleeve & in bag)

Blasted & blown out noise-heavy live set from NJ's CARDBOARD '93. Recorded Dec 17th 2023 @ all ages space, Flemington D.I.Y. in Flemington, NJ. An assortment of freak outs and jams, some written & some improvised by respective members of West Jersey Airport, Human Adult Band, the Ergs! & Crystal Violet. Primitive garage stomp and trash-jazz drums, antidote-to-modern-music-industry thrashed thunder broom, squalling and hammered out duel guitars. Bloodied pick guards. No finish. Closing jam, 'Rusty Roll of Quarters' was featured on Jon Solomon's 25 Hour Holiday Marathon '23 (WPRB) for the 4AM contingent. Tapers' pit & photograph by Ugly.

Frantically picked discordant bass moving to subliminal logic and decades of noise making, layered with effect heavy guitars playing psych space & scuzz with primitive trash-jazz & patience testing drumming. Can you endure it all?

Recycled as in repurposed tapes and paper used to produce copies. Weird as in, you know, most of the stuff we put out.

"Willfully Ceased to Exist"
(Carbon Records)

Split CD or Download (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.

"Sonic Enlightenment"
(Third Uncle Records)

LP (w/ download code)
(Color vinyl)

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.

"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) exclaims,
"[These are] some seriously ugly tunes." Terrascope explains "volume should be set to eleven...come to love everything about its chaotic, scuzzy charms."

Brand new garbled stuff & 2 new (2023) 'songs' that have only appeared outside of th' U.S., albeit from completely differnt sessions. J-card colors by TL (Western Mass).

(Hyster Tapes)

Cassette (Made in Finland on recycled tapes)

"there is automatic writing and then there is automatic rock. this is the latter with healthy doses of free noise, slow doom dirge jams, strange snippets of scuzz and a degenerating 5 sec tape loop to end it all. a glorious, 120% analogue, over the top lo-fi production."

Hyster Tapes

(Polyhedron Choir Records)

Lathe cut 7" record or Download (Made in New Zealand/slimey green translucent record)

Approx 13 min of glorious noisy one-mic-recorded jams by Human Adult Band. Released in New Zealand, a place duly represented in our collections. Newly captured on Jimi Hendrix's birthday in late 2022. 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.

NOTE: Lathes need to be played a couple times to bed in. May also need to adjust tone arm / anti-skating a bit.
