'Homotopy To Marie' is the fifth album by Nurse With Wound, originally released on United Dairies in 1982. The album is a step on from the Dadaist rock of 'Merzbild Schwet', with much use of tape manipulation and classical avant-garde techniques, using keywords including unsettling, volatile, eerie and nocturnal to describe the feel of the album which combined tape edits with resonating gong tones and disembodied children's voices to create a sonic collage far removed from the harsh improvisations of the group's early albums. The title of the brief closing track derives from a passage from 'Les Chants De Maldoror', a surreal poetic novel written by Le Comte de Lautréamont. This appropriation of a phrase from Maldoror is shared in common with the title of Nurse With Wound's debut album 'Chance Meeting On A Dissecting Table Of A Sewing Machine And An Umbrella'; both phrases appear in Lautréamont's work.
This reissue is the official full double album from the original recording session, the 4 tracks from the original LP plus the additional contemporaneous recording, 'Astral Dustbin Dirge', which had been omitted from the original formats for reasons of length and tracks from the same 1982 sessions which were included later in 1986 in 'Automating Vol. 1' Great audiophile sound quality!
