Originally released on LP in 1987 in an edition of 100 copies, this marks the first ever CD release of this Nurse With Wound classic. Comes housed in a gorgeous six-panel digipack featuring reproductions of some of the artwork that came with the original vinyl edition.
As a testament to the random disorder and beauty of life, London's Nurse with Wound (Steve Stapleton) functioned outside the normal musical channels for a decade, experimenting with tape collages of disjointed phrases, improvised music, electronics and found sounds on a series of intriguing, provocative, humorous and frequently entertaining self-released records. Between 1978 and 1988, Stapleton collaborated with such likeminded sonic adventurers as David Tibet of Current 93 and Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus to produce a prodigious body of work that embraces surrealism in both content and graphics.
* 1987 release available for first time ever on CD; only 100 copies pressed on vinyl previously
