With musical style backgrounds including Indie rock (being the most prominent), Bluegrass, Metal, Psychedelic Rock, Jam Bands, and Alternative rock. Over time the project slowly slipped into being a one man band, Matt Tankersley. The name 'Destined.For.Dirt' stuck for quite awhile with the project, while Matt recorded several of the first demo's for the project. Some time later, Matt and Harley decided to get back together, but changed the name to 'Apagenrethetic', a made up word based on the lack of genre. And once again for awhile, practice started and kept going for some time, but again all recordings were only included Matt Tankersley alone.
So after awhile, Harley had again left the project. With the new name, Matt took a journey back to his hometown, Defiance, OH, for 3 months, where he worked with an old friend named Joshua Bryant. Together they recorded 2 songs, which were a mix of noise rock and psychedelic rock. The songs had no real composition, and where named 'Head Mirage' and 'Head Mirage (Part 2)'. By the time it was over with, Matt had to move back to Parkersburg. Upon returning, 'Apagenrethetic' temporarily got back together, but once again, Harley failed to show up to practice and was constantly working.
Towards the end of the period, with maybe only 3 practice sessions the whole time, Matt presented the idea of changing the projects name to 'Psychogenic Replica', and shortly after Harley was gone again. For some time now, Matt Tankersley has kept the project going as being the only original member and the one who decided to spark the flame of making a new style of music. He has now progressed into making the project completely his own, only looking for other's to join the band to make the process easier, but has failed so far. So now, everything is still done by Matt Tankersley, from beginning to end, it's a one man band. He's the lead singer, lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, bassist, and produce all synth noise, and synth drum tracks.
Although this part of the equation makes it hard to quickly produce new songs, it was his sole idea to begin with, and continues to be his sole passion in life. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
