Side-Line readers say ‘F**k off’ to Facebook’s newest page reach killing

Update: For your info, just for the joke of it we planned to promote this article heavily on Facebook using a sponsored post… but guess what:  Facebook refused to accept the promotion. The new page reach scam by Facebook (you can read all about it in this article: ‘Facebook has officially killed page reach‘) is not very well received by page admins and followers of those pages. But there is some good news, you can go around their ‘ban’, something which we explain below. For those who still doubt, at Side-Line we did a poll on Facebook (polls are not that limited in reach, for now that is) where we asked the following: “Facebook wants to charge Side-Line Magazine 870 Euro per post update so we can reach the 52.000 people following the page… What do you think?”. You could choose between a) Fuck Off Facebook or b) Yeah, cool!. The results so far: a 96% fuck off to Facebook and 4% who have a liking for Britney Spears (totally understandable of course). In case you still want to cast your vote as well: And now the good news, in order to keep on getting our news in your newsfeed, […]

Massive Controlled Bleeding 10CD/book set expected – pre-orders available now

The period between 1985 and 1988 was the most productive in the long history of Controlled Bleeding. No fewer than 13 albums and 3 split works were released in this short timeframe, starting with “Death in the Cameroon”, and including releases on Sub Rosa, Dossier, and many others. Artoffact Records is now releasing a 10CD collection of Controlled Bleeding material, “Blistered Bags Of Fodder Swaying: Works 1980”, released between 1985 and 1988, much of which has been out of print for decades. Pre-orders are now available via the label’s mail-order. The set starts with the tape-only “Death in the Cameroon”, and includes seven more Controlled Bleeding albums, including “Headcrack”, which has never been released on CD. Also included are two Controlled Bleeding off-shoots: the industrial one-off project The Art Barbeque, from 1985, and the Lemos / Papa collaboration “Music For Stolen Icon” from 1986. The set also includes large-size reproductions of the front and back covers of each release, as well as a longform essay by Paul Lemos. All material has been remastered and restored. Check some product shots below.
