Collection of material from 1978-1982 from one of the industrial world's most interesting groups.

Although Controlled Bleeding has been and always will be lumped into the genre of old school industrial music, their earliest inspirations were steeped in the first wave of New York City punk bands like The Dictators, Dead Boys, the Ramones and the brooding technical brilliance of King Crimson, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Henry Cow. This collection of music from the early formations of the group, infused with the hunger and intensity of youth, clearly illustrates the collision of these seemingly opposing influences. Recordings from 1978-1982, assembled by main man Paul Lemos capture the different early eras of Controlled Bleeding. An incredible peak back into the early days of "anything goes" alternative music.

Controlled Bleeding - Wall Of China / Love Letters (02:31)
Controlled Bleeding - Wall Of China (Soup Time Records, 1981) 7" EP The debut of Paul Lemos' legendary band, before turning into industrial noise. Gary Pecorino and drummer Tony Meola were the other members, long before the arrival of long-time collaborators Chris Moriarty and Joe Papa (RIP). The band recorded this four track EP where you can clearly hear Paul's interest in 1970's music. "Wall Of China / Love Letters" is an instrumental psychedelic ride, whereas "No Flies (On Frank) / Veal" shows kraut rock influences. These songs have been reissued on the "Before The Quiet" compilation CD in 2008.
