Willfully Ceased To Exist CD
Carbon Records

Ankylosaurus' tracks on this split CD were all improvised, each in one take. No edits or overdubs. One amp, cab, a couple pedals and a franken-bass. These are seriously thick and heavy slabs of low-end meditations. Think Earth 2. More of an Awareness thuds along, fuzz drenched, with subtle phaser, like walking thru a blizzard, or a sun-drenched highway, ever searching for a reprieve from the onslaught. Ceased to Exist, steady and crunching, gets interrupted at the mid-point, with frantic fret-board action, circuit starved, and eventually coming back to stare at a wall of slower, sustained heavy-fuzz washes. Ankylosaurus is the solo moniker of T.Penn of the NJ based weirdo rock outfit Human Adult Band.

Joe+N, who is 1/4 of the psych-aktion unit Pengo, also works in the improv framework, creating these tracks from various one-take recordings. Terms of Measurement is a phaser-drenched guitar and drums mid-tempo jammer, which fades into a free-noise guitar medley. The Deepest is an acoustic gestalt created from acoustic guitar, tibetan bowls, and Tony Conrad-inspired drone violin. This is one of the first Joe+n recordings to feature his primary instrument, drums, as well as his latest tool for exploration, violin.
