v.a.-DRY LUNGS-A Compilation Of Industrial Music From Around The World-(Placebo Records-USA-1985)

Amazing compilation released on vinyl and cassette in 1985 by the American Placebo Records.
It offers us a great selection of tracks and artists from the very new wave of industrial music emerging in the early 80s.
Placebo Records was born in 1979, primarily as a punk label in Phoenix, Arizona with a handful of electronic/noise releases, notably the early parts of the 'Dry Lungs' series. Main early label for Phoenix skate-punkers JFA. Assumed defunct.
Enjoy it.

  1. ...A critical release that exposed a new layer of noise just beneath the surface of the better-known British originators; a signal of the real changes that lay ahead.
