Nurse With Wound: Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Maching and an Umbrella LP

Availability: Out of stock

Official reissue. New remastering vinyl of the 1979 LP by Colin Potter. Gatefold cover plus complete Nurse With Wound list on gatefold inner. This is the long-awaited vinyl re-issue of the timeless Nurse With Wound debut release from 1979. Described by Sounds at the time as a record that "makes The Faust Tapes sound like Carousel," nothing has changed to alter this view over the last 30 years, and to say that this work is the "Sgt. Pepper of the avant-garde" would not be hyperbole. Members include: John Fothergill (synthesizer, guitar, keyboards, wind), Heman (synthesizer, guitar, keyboards, wind), Nicky Rogers (guitar), and Steve Stapleton (synthesizer, flute, guitar, keyboards). The album has been included in the "100 Records That Set the World on Fire (While No One Was Listening)" by The Wire in 1998, and is one of the records that have had a lasting impact on avant-garde, experimental and psychedelic music. It was on this record that the famous "NWW list" appeared for the first time, featuring dozens of names of musicians and groups who had influenced Nurse With Wound -- a list that now serves as a treasure map for many collectors of the genre and fans of outsider music. It's been replicated here in the inner-sleeve of the gatefold. The album contains three lengthy tracks and Stapleton has stated that these were edited from improvisations with some overdubbing. Stapleton designed the sleeve using an old pornographic magazine.
