Über Controlled Bleeding
Since noise insurgent Paul Lemos founded Controlled Bleeding in the late '70s, he's embarked on a staggering variety of musical explorations, crafting operatic Goth and nearly unlistenable, cassette-crafted noise, as well as jazz and Dub-oriented electronic. To say he's been prolific is a bit of an understatement -- he's released more than twenty albums on almost as many labels -- two of which come courtesy of Gabor's celebrated Wax Trax!, home to such other notables as Laibach, Revolting Cocks, and Coil. High school English teacher Lemos continues to raid the cabinets, though he appears to be experimenting with peanut butter and jelly rather than the blender these days. Strings and live instruments may, in fact, find their way into C.B.'s new material scheduled for release on Tone Casualties. It makes sense, since he's hinted that his sometimes-purely digital rhythmic manipulation was often easier to record than live drum kits.
