Never Get To Be Cool

New Haven, CT



Bobby Bunny and Malcolm Tent founded Connecticut's most infamous band BunnyBrains in 1988. Hardly satisfied, in 2002 they upped the ante with Ultrabunny. Is that blood coming out of my ears???

PSIRENS is the project of experimental vocalist Paris Mancini.
Her performance consists of loopingpercussive bass, vocals and sampled noise. PSIRENS has made fresh albums every year since 2009 and loves to be writing or touring as much as possible all around the world. She is based out of Brooklyn NY and Santa Fe NM. She is represented by Matron Records (Santa Fe) and TPOS Records (Danbury)


HUMAN ADULT BAND is a long-running (since Oct '02) collective style noise rock, no wave & drone rock band based out of New Brunswick, NJ. 'Gross fire' as Inzane Johnny Olson of Wolf Eyes puts it. Performed by stooges raised on 'Jolt Cola and Mad Magazine' spits Matt Korvette of Pissed Jeans. Human Adult Band are touring in support of their new LP, 'Sonic Enlightenment' which seemed to be well received by both WIRE & MaximumRocknRoll. Chug the gunk and be amazed (and a little more deaf) as Human Adult Band embark on their first New England tour in over 5 years.  

Live on WFMU


Jim Schmidt is a guitarist living in Highland Park, NJ.  He has played in numerous bands and solo incarnations connected with the New Brunswick, NJ music community over the years.  Some of these are/is/was Quit, The Summer Dresses, Marie Henry, Kahdena, Turkey Sandwich, Pots and Powercells, and Human Adult Band.  You might be able to find him down by the creek.


Legendary, highly volatile, psych-primitive unit from the autumnal climate of upstate New York. Fondling the same clammy flesh as Sunburned Hand of The Man and No Neck Blues Band, this band of John Schoen, Jason Finkbeiner, Nuuj and Joe Tunis marry fucked-up turntable sound with acoustic (broken folk?) instrumentation, tapes and voices to dazzling effect.
