CONTROLLED BLEEDING-Shitslipper-(Inner-X-Musick-USA-1985)

Versatile and experimental noise / ambient band formed in Boston, 1978 (later re-locating to Massapequa, New York).

Though they began playing music in a style akin to instrumental art rock, a move into violent power electronics in the mid 1980s set Controlled Bleeding on a course that would take them through industrial, ambient, free jazz, noise, dub, progressive rock, sacred music, dark ambient, classical and musique concrète. To their detriment, the group was not concerned with generating or maintaining an audience, relying instead on spontaneous inspiration - often the cause of alienation amongst many of their listeners.

The band's only constant member is Paul Lemos, although early band members included Jack Salerno, Dave Southerland, Gary Pecorino and Tony Meola, a stable line-up was not attained until the early 1980s, with the addition of Joe Papa and Chris Moriarty.

Moriarty departed circa 1994, however he and Lemos continued to work together on side-projects such as Joined At The Head, Skin Chamber and Fat Hacker, whilst Lemos and Papa pursued further sonic experiments with Controlled Bleeding, as well as releasing music under their own names. After the deaths of both Chris Moriarty and Joe Papa in the late 00's, original member Tony Meola re-joined the band on drums. The current guitar-and-drums version of Controlled Bleeding plays instrumental rock songs influenced by Krautrock (notably Can) and progressive rock.

On 11th February 2020, Paul Lemos announced via the official Controlled Bleeding Facebook page that the band is no more. (all info from Discogs)

BedouinDrone-Khan Younis-(Self Released-Bandcamp-2020)


Khan Younis refugee camp is located about two kilometres from the Mediterranean coast, north of Rafah. It lies west of the town of Khan Younis, a major commercial centre and stop-off point on the ancient trade route to Egypt.

Fleeing their homes during the 148 Arab-Israeli war, 35,000 refugees took shelter in the camp. Most were from the Be’er Sheva area. Today, Khan Younis camp is home to 87,816 refugees.
Life for nearly all refugees in the camp has become increasingly difficult because of the blockade on Gaza, with has caused a dramatic deterioration of socio-economic conditions, including ever growing unemployment and poverty rates. Fewer and fewer families can provide for themselves, leaving a staggering proportion of the population dependent on UNRWA’s food and cash assistance. As in other camps across the Gaza Strip, basic hygiene is another big concern with 90 per cent of the camp’s water supply being unfit for human consumption. 

BedouinDrone, drawing inspiration from the conflicting moods of the Middle East. War, prayer and the pressured condition of Arabic culture are the central themes . Drawing attention to political subjects rarely touched upon by the Western electronic music canon. BedouinDrone utilizes techniques of ambient and noise to immerse listeners in the tense state of the current Islamic world. click me

 Lo fi Recording of this legendary gig by Herny Rollins band at the famous Forte Prenestino squat in Rome.The recording isn`t the best and I would say that this tape is for the die-hard fans of the famous singer.

Kontagio Produzioni Tapes was a small distro releasing mostly live tapes recorded in this massive squat(probably the biggest in Europe).
Forte Prenestino is, in fact, a fort squatted on the end of the 80s and still alive and kicking.

DEAD SILENCE - Hell, How Could We Make Any More Money Than This? -(Profane Existence-USA-1994)

Dead Silence arrived on the scene in 1984, they were politically outspoken to the point of being labeled as preachy. This sort of approach ran headfirst into the ‘Don’t rock the boat too much’ philosophy of the Denver scene. The band was hardline on animal rights and vegetarianism, though not all band members shared the same level of passion that Kevin Vulture, the ad hoc leader of the band did.

Say what you will about Kevin and company, but over the years they honed their craft for combining politics and music. When the band was on stage, Kevin’s diatribe backed by a wall of sound set the tone and commanded the room’s attention. After forming, Dead Silence initially played shows in Denver then spent their later years playing in Boulder where they had a stronger following. Despite the short physical distance between Denver and Boulder, the attitudes and lifestyles were fundamentally opposite. Dead Silence seldom played Denver proper past 1985. During an interview in the 8 Flights Up fanzine Kevin and Carl stated: "We don't fit into the music scene in Denver because...Certain bands have a monopoly. We don't fit into the BumKonBrotherRatFluidAcidRanch clique so we haven't played Denver since 1985." 

The band was prolific in releasing records and touring as Kevin kept the vision alive through many incarnations spanning a 10-year period. In hindsight, what I appreciated about Dead Silence was they chose a path and never compromised their integrity. I recently reconnected with Ted, the drummer. Since he and Kevin were the original members who stuck it out for the first 5-years, I thought he’d have a unique perspective on the band. Lorn, another original member also shed some light on a couple of the questions. It was a pleasure catching-up with Ted after more than 25 years. He had a couple of beers during the course of our one-hour conversation, which was a perfect pairing for his Texas accent.
