TASM Lab (1994 - Present)

TASM Lab (Till Action Science Media Laboratory) was 'formed' in 1994, shortly after Jeff Till moved from Kalamazoo to Boston. TASM Lab, if anything, is a name, sometimes representing a company, a band name, a cohort, a website, or label. Basically a branded cover for whatever music, writing, art, etc. coming out of Jeff's house.

TASM Lab has completed four CDs not with secondary band names, manic opera Thing and Nothing (1995), piano/vocal concept record Penisgeek Chrestomathy: The Essential Cubicle Nosepicker (1999) in 2008 the Dreamy AN ADULTY ADIPISCI, and in 2009 the fuckity fuck THE BRAMBLES OF HELL. These records featured Kalamazoo-bred vocal talent, including Brent Oberlin, Colin Bradford, Chris Bryers, Michelle Graf, and Dave Grant.

TASM Lab is also a label of sorts, and serves as a branded launch pad for the likes of Jeff's bands THE HUDSON DEBACLE, SCREWTAPE, and OVERMAN. To a lesser extent, TASM Lab co-labeled Bryer's "Hazel and the Black Rabbit" with Leonstemple.com.

TASM Lab played one live "show" on the New Years Eve of the Millenium at Harvey's. The short show only featured two songs.

TASM Lab is still active, with new music and art targeted for 2010 and beyond.
