PORTION CONTROL

PORTION CONTROL (UK)

 

The dawning of electro punk turned out not even to be an electro diet (portion control)!

Portion Control from the UK was at the forefront of the upcoming electro industrial scene in the early eighties. Inspired by the punk mentality and the first experimental industrial acts such as Throbbing GristleSPK or yet Chris & Cosey. Portion Control themselves are one of the most famous obscure electronic music acts in the world and have been honored and name checked by the likes of Depeche Mode, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Nine Inch Nails and Orbital.
Then,  after an absence of almost 18 (!) years,  Portion Control resurrected with the double cd 'Well come' an album kicking with vitality and intelligence combining the original Portion Control spirit (somewhere between experiment and witty electronic pop music) with modern technology.

This  2004 comeback album 'Well Come' got very good, even excellent reviews worldwide and it took not long before Portion Control was invited by Skinny Puppy to open their London gig (2004), a memorable concert that was soon to be followed by appearances on a number of European renown festivals like the BIMFEST (B), Elektrixmas (SE), Tinitus (SE), etc ...

 

 

After the release of 'Filthy White Guy' (2006) Portion Control was this time asked by Front Line Assembly to support their European tour in 2007 and a year later the band was invited to play one of the biggest alternative festivals in Europe, the German WGT festival.

Meanwhile Portion Control have been quiet active releasing albums as ‘Slug’ (2008)!, 'Crop' (2009) and their brand new one 'Pure Form'! 

Some of Portion Controls classics songs are ‘The Great Divide’‘Rough Justice’‘Raise The Pulse’ and ‘Chew You To Bits’. Together with the excellent tracks of the 3 latest albums like ‘Blind eyes”‘Swerve or yet “Rough” and their stunning visuals a Portion Control show is a must see!
