Forget The Times is a free improv collective from Kalamazoo, MI led by Sean Hartman. The band combines elements of psych, drone, noise rock, avant garde, post rock and free jazz. They have drawn comparisons to The Dead C, Acid Mothers Temple, U.S. Maple and Captain Beefheart.
Instrumentation is generally guitar heavy and almost never features a bass player. Rhythms are embedded with tape manipulation, synth drone, field recordings, monotone vocals and various experimentation creating a cathartic and spacey sound.
Formed in the summer of 2010 from members of local Kalamazoo bands Rotten Wood Moon, Son Drop and The Philly Crawlers. Lineups have since featured members of The Reptilian, The Almanac Shouters, Totally Rad, William Bonney, Batcave, Boron Nuzzle and an ever increasing cast of like minded musicians.
