Jarboe - Walls Are Bleeding CASS

A real rarity here that I don't see around very much, posted by request. Not listed in Discogs, this predates her work with Swans. Three tracks including the ultra-creepy full length version of the title track, this one includes a vicious high pitched whine that puts it over the top.

" Three tracks including the ultra-creepy full length version of the title track " ???
Well, the 3 tracks on this file amount to around 20 minutes ...Is this complete ? Anyway, thanks for the music.

From http://swans.pair.com/DISCOGRAPHY/SwansDsc70.txt :

THE WALLS ARE BLEEDING
x CS 1984? [none] [none] US

The Walls are Bleeding / Taffy Was A Welshman / Injection

Notes:
This collection of Jarboe's early experimental pieces got
"art type distribution" worldwide. "The Walls Are Bleeding"
is a twenty-minute version of an earlier two-hour-long
performance art piece. Other versions of that song appear on
the NINE UNDERGROUND, DRY LUNGS, and AEON compilations (on
which see below).

thanks for the info.

as far as I know this is complete, listen to it yourself and hear. Doesn't seem to cut off or be incomplete.

You may be right :) ! I understood wrongly the information above : when the guy speaks of the 20 minute piece, maybe he's applying the name The Walls are bleeding & the 20 minute count to the whole k7 and not to the first song ... Sorry & thanks again,

Hi, I just made a new account to post on your blog, something which I wanted to do for more than a year (I don't have a google account).

This is a general post & nothing related to the Jarboe album. I want to sincerely thank you for all your work that you have put into this blog. Though your uploads are sporadic, it's normally quality stuff & never overwhelming like some other blogs. Thanks Again. off to thank the industrial music also (thing on your doorstep)
