Beneath the name Korova, they documented a demonstration tape the summertime after graduating from senior high school, and mailed a duplicate to TeenBeat Information; the company originally passed on putting your signature on the group, but afterwards, label chief Tag Robinson found the tape, hearing it obsessively throughout a trip to European countries. With no various other information apart from the group’s name, Robinson futilely sought out Korova on the web; he then continued tour along with his music group Air Miami, making use of their routine including a day at Oberlin University, where Comer was going to school. He launched himself to Robinson in the concert, and quickly the duo was authorized to TeenBeat; changing their name to Tel Aviv, they released their debut solitary “Cigarette” in middle-1995, adopted that fall by their self-titled debut LP. Adding fellow Oberlin college student and keyboardist Raymond Sweeten, they came back in early 1997 with THE FORM of Fiction.
