Spring/Summer 2014
2014 has been a relatively mellow year for TIForg so far.. but that is about to change as the summer comes and new projects are being released and planned.. all of this as Instagon appraches and prepares for its 666th show, which is being planned for OCTOBER. .stay tuned for details.. but first up...LOB HAS A NEW BAND!! The new band is called WIZARDS OV GARAGE JAZZ and they are playing their first show June 30 in Davis,CA. Watch for more news regarding this band and its direction in the coming months.. but the plan is sort of a cross between Instagon & Garage Jazz Archtiects (GJA has officially ended, if you did not know that) .....also currently on the workshop desk here at TIF is the BIG CALIFORNIA NOISE COMPILATION... this project looks to get contributions from AS MANY sound/noise artists as it can in the next few months to put together one HUGE representation of noise FROM California. This project is part of a large scale project called ONE NATION UNDER NOISE, where we are looking to generate free downloadable compilations from EVERY state...TIForg is involved with the organization of both of these projects
Lastly.. in the Spring.. we released the 3rd volume in the AUDIO ROADKILL series.. it contains exclusive material from ENDOMETRIUM CUNTPLOW, CHOPSTICK, MEDICINE CABITNET, & PCRV...plus photo art by Lob. A limited pressing of 20 CDs have been made of this release and are now available for purchase.. if you are interested follow this link: Audio Roadkill Volume 3.
