Controlled Bleeding is an experimental music group based in Long Island, New York. The group was founded by Paul Lemos, the group's only consistent member. Most of Controlled Bleeding's released recordings feature two main collaborators, Chris Moriarty and vocalist Joe Papa, who both passed away in the late 2000s.

Since their first full-length release, Knees and Bones, in 1983, Controlled Bleeding have released a number of albums spanning several different genres, many of which were released on notable independent labels. Their cross-genre approach combined with the out-of-print status of many of the group's early releases is reminiscent of the work of other experimental groups of the 80s and 90s such as Coil and Swans. But Bleeding continues today, creating strange new works, perhaps the most challenging of their long career.

In 2016 the group signed with Toronto-based Artoffact Records to reissue their extensive discography, as well as to release their first all-new studio album in over 10 years, Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps. The release received praise from Pitchfork, the Wall Street Journal, Outburn Magazine, Decibel Magazine, and many other reputable media outlets.

Following 2016’s much-lauded Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps, Controlled Bleeding returns now with Carving Songs, a massive remix album totaling 20 tracks, including a 21st track, TROD, a brand new Controlled Bleeding composition which founder Paul Lemos referred to as “a really a major piece for us… a VERY dark song.” 
 
The hand-picked cast of remixers includes Japanese noise-guru MerzbowJustin K. Broadrick from industrial-metal act Godflesh(not to mention Jesu), as well as MonolakeRamlehChild Bite, and many others. Even notorious experimental guitarist (and current Lydia Lunch Retrovirus member) Weasel Walter makes an appearance. 
 
The remixes range from straight up power noise, to post-black metal, to industrial-influenced beats, and are as varied as Controlled Bleeding itself, a project known for being impossible to classify. An essential release in the long, storied history of one of America’s foremost experimenters. 

 

 

BresnixCast #2 Paul Metzger

 

 

In the second episode of the show I had a very interesting and quite philosophical conversation with Paul Metzger.

Paul is known for his modified instruments and free, improvisational playing style.

Topics include: how Paul got into modifying instruments, self taught vs. classically trained musicians, Buddhism & Taoism, circuit bending,
our musical impulses, finding new organic sounds and much more.

Black Dice are an abstract electronic blues band currently based out of Los Angeles, California and Palma de Majorca, Spain.  Formed in 1997, the band has roots in American DIY hardcore culture, evolving to incorporate sonic aspects of dub, techno, hip hop, tropicalia, and musique concrete while maintaining a crude punk aesthetic.  Black Dice has released records on Gravity, Vermin Scum, Troubleman, 31G, Catsup Plate, Tigerbeat6, DFA, Fat Cat, PawTracks, Ribbon, and LIES. The band has played hundreds of shows worldwide, from suburban basements to Medieval castles, and continues to search for the ultimate roadhouse jam session.
