Controlled Bleeding's 1985 head-splitting release KNEES AND BONES is considered to be one of the earliest recordings of American power electronics. Over more than three decades, Controlled Bleeding has accumulated dozens of releases on international labels like Wax Trax!, Soleilmoon and Dossier. Controlled Bleeding has no one specific "sound" -- the band can explore ambient soundscapes on one release, then harsh noise experiments on the next.
