Limited edition of 500 copies, no repress. A new NWW mutation, with some of the most hauntingly evocative pieces in Steven Stapleton's catalogue, as striking and unusual as anything else Nurse With Wound has produced. A coherent sampler of Nurse With Wound’s range of dark and humorous that includes a full side of “Funeral Music For Perez Prado" on vinyl for the first time, the masterpiece "(I Don’t Want to Have ) Easy Listening Nightmares" from "Alice the Goon", and a a remix/rework of this track’ renamed as “Alice The Goon (A Floating Eye)”.
The tracks have been remastered by Colin Potter for a new full LP with a new Babs Santini artwork. (I Don’t Want to Have ) Easy Listening Nightmares" is fairly creative experimental electronic music, mixing distortion and cartoon parps, sinister rhythms, looping mambo and a surrealist feeling going through the whole track. “Alice The Goon (A Floating Eye)” is a brilliant rework of the previous track by Colin Potter, a more industrial approach and thickening rhythms.
“Funeral Music For Perez Prado” is perhaps the most atmospheric ambient track by Stapleton, and the backdrop for strange dream-like gibberish centering around a shakuhachi phrase played by David Jackman aka Organum back in '87.
This LP was initially put up for sale by White Noise (the label's first release) on the occasion of "Festival Musiques Ultimes" in Nevers, France, on 13th and 14th May 1995. White Noise was the organizer of the festival. Limited to 500 copies in folded sleeve. Non-music side of the record is smooth without etchings.
