EXP ia an EXPerimental band that started in 1992. EXP is perhaps the most incestuous band in the Rozz Williams family. The enitity has one self titled, full lenght release available through Hollow Hills recording. EXP has released singles on 4 different compilatins, and also recorded a limited edition, handmade 7-Inch single. Fronted by PARIS, PARIS (formerly keyboardist of Shadow Project) has joined forces with ROZZ WILLIAMS (bassist) (formerly of Christian Death, Shadow Project, Daucus Karota, Premature Ejaculation, Heltir, 1334), jazz guru Ace Farren Ford (Smegma, Shadow Project), Ryan Gaumer and Justin Bennett. The first incarnation of E.X.P. began in 1992 with recordings made in subterranean tunnels at the ocean. Paris and Ryan used the sounds for the soundtrack of , a one-time multimedia assault at a Gnostic church in Los Angeles. E.X.P. did a series of successful West coast shows, incorporating the chilling sounds of Brian on a huge steel cello and the bizarre performance art of a crazed Dean X. < ..this is a hybrid of styles nurtured by years of multimedia West coast performances. Transcending experimental , E.X.P. slips into sonic chaos. Chants and wails are bathed in schizophrenic symphonies, saxophone and rare steel cello mix with arresting samples. EXP serves up enough atmosphere to drown in. > (April Johnson, 1997 ) <" experimentation that refuses boundaries, like if DOWNLOAD would meet FAITH & THE MUSE...> Please note that this is not actually EXP or anything having to do with EXP. This is a BIG TIME Fan made page dedicated to Rozz' band that is beyond the grounds of hell.
