    EMPTY SHAPES www.myspace.com/emptyshapes www.emptyshapes.bandcamp.com The Empty Shapes are a heavy psych, noise rock, blues band from Claymont DE. They are the self appointed "Official Martin Luther King Jr. Blues Band." They channel both the raw early 20th century blues of the deep American South and the full on drone/noise of New Zealand’s South Island & their X-Pressway kin. It is what Empty Shapes like to call a Dead C style Blues. EIDETIC SEEING http://www.myspace.com/eideticseeing Eidetic reduction is the stage subsequent to transcendental or phenomenological reduction and is sometimes viewed as the second stage of phenomenological reduction itself. Transcendental reduction lifts us to the transcendental realm, and turns empirical consciousness to transcendental or pure consciousness. Eidetic reduction of an act of transcendental consciousness penetrates to essence. It is a procedure for acquiring insight into essence and places us in cognitive contact with general or universal knowledge. The result of this reduction is a clearer and more distinct consciousness of the universal. HUMAN ADULT BAND http://www.myspace.com/humanadultband Human Adult Band has been a creative vehicle for Trevor Pennsylvania since October 2002 and has featured a revolving door of members from experimental, rock and noise acts, Buckets and Batteries, Gorgot and Magnet City Kids. The Adult Band formed in New Brunswick, NJ as a two piece with members, Digget on drums and Trevor P.A. on bass and vocals. After a few gigs at CBGBs and some east coast gigs, drummer, Digget was replaced by Blaine P. and the band began to include additional members to fill out the sound. The new additions included, at times, Michael Dooling on percussion, Jake Annodide on modified guitars and circuit bent keyboards and Mike Hayden on additional keyboards and mixing board. Drummer, Chaz Wetlands, replaced Blaine on drums for a couple of gigs and an east coast tour with Gerritt Wittmer. After a year of gigging and touring, the band moved to Philadelphia and Trevor P.A. stayed in New Brunswick, NJ. At this time the band's Wantnaut/Wastenaut demo, featuring live tracks and home-studio tracks, was released. Soon after the release, Wantnaut/Wastenaut reached the top 40 at NYC's Free103point9, a terribly hip noise and experimental music radio station. Shortly after Trevor P.A. decided to regroup the Adult Band in New Brunswick with new members, Mike McCoskey on guitar, Dana Gada on tambourine, Andrei on feedback mixer and microphone and King Darves on drums, the later two from the New Brunswick noise band, Gorgot. In 2008 Kyler George replaced King Darves on drums and Nicole Siering brought keyboard back to the group, as Dana and Andrei departed. The Adult Band can currently be found playing locally at the Court Tavern, basement shows and loft parties in New Brunswick, NJ. The band has also toured the United States & Europe and continues to make plans for repeat visits. The band has been releasing limited run live mix cassettes, cds and records hailed by music magazines and online blogs such as Thurston Moore & Byron Coley's Bull Tongue, Blastitude, Animal PSI, Music Emissions, Wire and Maximum Rock and Roll etc. Some of these releases are available on their own label, dihd, as well as on Third Uncle Records, Scumbag Relations and Abandon Ship Records. Look for more Human Adult Band vinyl, tapes and cds in 2010 from Heat Retention Records, Freedom School Records and Dontrustheruin.
