(d.i.h.d. recs)

Cassette/c32. Made to order, home xeroxed and dubbed.

Unsanctioned as in, no authoritative approval, thus no limitations put on the music and art by a major corporation who would in turn squeeze every last penny out of the creators once modified. No forced commercials before and during the listening & viewing experience. Street-like art. Handed or mailed from us to you. Only ppl involved are the creators and you. Recycled as in repurposed tapes and paper used to produce copies. Weird as in, you know, most of the stuff we put out. New unreleased tracks from Ankylosaurus (NJ), Double Wig (Philly), Advanced Corpse Materials (Philly), Michael Slyne (CT), Threader (NJ), Will Heel (MA) & Cancer Cult (NJ).

"3.12.22-7.12.22"
(Hyster Tapes)

Cassette (32 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."

"Last'd"
(Polyhedron Choir Records)

Lathe cut 7" record or Download (Approx 30 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.

"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.

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

Our full length Feeding Tube Records debut. Studio album featuring 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..th' band telepathy had reached new heights fer sure. You older folks may recognise some reworked themes, but there's a lot of weird surprises and new material on this one. Guest appearances by friends from Sad Tomorrows, Resounding No and th' Ergs! Outstanding early weird cartoon meets relic toy art from Jaime Rvrs Mrcy and a magical drawing from Justin Mank within. If you want to get a copy, don't sit on it, almost sold out (and it may crack or smudge if you do).

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.
