Since the late-'70s, WILLIAM BENNETT has released and performed extreme noise and industrial music. He played guitar for sax-driven post-punkers ESSENTIAL LOGIC in their early days and formed an industrial group named Come, who are now remembered for their alumni (including J. G. Thirwell a.k.a. Foetus and Mute label head Daniel Miller) rather than their output.
Industrial forbears CONTROLLED BLEEDING play their first Boston show in years this Saturday at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston. The group formed in the late ‘70s, and most consider them the first ever power electronics project from Boston despite relocating to New York a few years later. Saturday’s inspired lineup also features Xiphoid Dementia, Sharpwaist, Shame Michael Broderick, and Ghost Grass (Max Lord), four of the most important figures on the local scene and veterans in their own right.
