Talibam, formed in New York by Storm & Stress' drummer Kevin Shea, keyboardist Matt Mottel and saxophonist Ed Bear, debuted with Talibam (Evolving Ear, 2006), three extended cacophonous pieces a` la Borbetomagus, and the live Hungry Hungry Hemispheres (2006), another outburst of noise-jazz jams.

The impact of those preliminary recordings was much reduced on Ordination of the Globetrotting Conscripts (Azul Discografica, 2007), whose shorter pieces lacked the urgency and poignancy of the earlier jams, except the 13-minute The Spectre of Water Wars.

The two lengthy jams of The Excusable Earthling (2007) restored their credentials.

Boogie In The Breeze Rocks (ESP, 2009) features Tim Dahl and Moppa Elliott (bass), Michael Evans (percussion), Sparks' Peter Evans (trumpet), Jon Irabagon (sax), Sam Kulik (trombone), Robbie Lee (renaissance instruments), Peeesseye's Chris Forsyth, Jeremy Wilms and Anders Nilsson (guitars).

Peeesseye + Talibam! (may 2008) , is a collaboration between these two New York trios.

Discover AtlantASS (2012)

Two live jams appear on The New Nixon Tapes (2009). Augmented with Alan Wilkinson, Talibam also recorded Dem Ol' Apple Pie Melodies (early 2009) containing the 19-minute Obamalamadingdong.

Double Automatism (Karl, 2014) documents improvisations with veteran composer Yasunao Tone (computer) and trombonist Sam Kulik.

Talibam's drummer Kevin Shea and synth-man Matt Mottel joined saxophonist Alan Wilkinson for the live It Is Dangerous To Lean Out (december 2014).

The two 20-minute pieces of Hard Vibe (ESP, 2017) feature the duo with Matt Nelson (tenor saxophone, effects, tambourine) and Ron Stabinsky (electronic keyboards).

Endgame Of The Anthropocene (ESP, 2017) is another electronic work.
