...a celebration and documentation of 10 years of NWW shows but to call Dark Fat a live album is far too simplistic. It is an entirely new recording constructed by combining the most interesting moments of the past decade into unique tracks. We have M.S. Waldron to thank as he is archival commandant of the NWW oeuvre and since 2006 has recorded everything and we mean EVERYTHING. He has recorded all the live shows, sound-checks, rehearsals, off-stage events and even covertly recorded the private conversations of the band. These recordings have been studiously and lovingly crafted into a unique sonic tapestry by Waldron and Stapleton with delicate embroidery and filigree added by Liles and Potter. Listen in the Dark and soak up the Fat.

Nurse With Wound’s Lumb’s Sister has been newly remastered from the original analog tapes by Denis Blackham.  “This music was originally conceived as raw material for the film project Lumb’s Sister by Chris Wallis. During the long evolution of his movie, Chris decided to use alternative source sounds and subsequently none of these pieces ever made it onto the completed film. Aw, shucks.” —Stephen Stapleton

***Bar Maldoror is the new and expanded double-CD edition of the classic Nurse With Wound album. Disc one is a remastered version of Live at Bar Maldoror, originally recorded between 1984 and 1986; disc two features a previously unreleased 2007 live show from Ghent, Belgium.  “In our very short spell as a ‘live band’ Nurse With Wound performed eight times, five in public, between the years of 1984-86. These events were shambolic, chaotic and uneven affairs, sometimes as boring for the performers as the non-plussed audiences but at other times reaching an amazing intensity. Some were quite amusing—I remember one in particular, a Christmas event in Amsterdam. We had decided no electric lights, just hundreds of candles around the stage and, in amongst the audience (who were busy arranging them in circles) we began. I had a vast array of little noise making objects—toys and things—and I started inviting members of the audience to help us wind the clockwork stuff when suddenly about 50 people descended upon us, all very eager to help. Soon there was no room and we discreetly left the stage to watch the show from the comfort of the bar. Nobody seemed to notice. The audience played well and some of that gig made it on to this CD, which contains the high points of our Bar Maldoror happenings (sic).” —Steven Stapleton, February 3rd, 1994

Nurse With Wound

Creakiness And Other Misdemeanours
United Jnana

Creakiness and Other Misdemeanours collects Nurse With Wound’s side of their long out-of-print split LP with Spasm, plus various other very limited releases. The 1991’s Creakiness features Stephen Stapleton, Joolie Wood, James Mannox and Tony Wakeford crafting a five-part dada-esque mix of samples from Warner Brothers cartoons, car horns, game show buzzers and other sounds. “Mona Twisted” and “Twisted Mona” are from the Sand Tangled Women (Echo Poeme Sequence 3) 7-inch, the 19-minute “Little Dipper Minus Two (Echo Poeme Sequence 1)” was a single-track CDR—both originally released in limited editions by Klanggalerie in 2005. “A Perfectly Natural Explanation” was released on the Having Fun with the Prince of Darkness 7-inch in 2004.

Second Pirate Session by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Second Pirate Session
United Jnana

"Second Pirate Session is a collection of outtakes from Rock 'n' Roll Station, which was originally planned as a double album, but for some reason never happened. These tracks were never fully completed and in hindsight benefit from their stripped down atmosphere. Second Pirate Session contains some of my favorite Nurse With Wound songs."  --Steven Stapleton  "... hypnotic, pulsating, and provides a wonderful ambiance to any type of listening activities. Quite a departure from Nurse With Wound's sound to begin with, this is a 'complete picture' of the entire session." --Brainwashed.com

Chance Meeting (Reissue / Special Edition) by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Chance Meeting (Reissue / Special Edition)
United Jnana

United Jnana is pleased to reissue the debut album from Nurse With Wound, Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella, originally released on United Dairies in 1979. This special edition CD features a digipack with the original artwork restored and an expanded booklet with archival material chosen by Steven Stapleton. The disc has been remastered from the original analog tapes and features bonus material. Chance Meeting enjoys a reputation as one of the most singular debuts of all time. AllMusic describes it as "one of the more glowing examples of late-'70s industrial noise," and the now-defunct UK music magazine Sounds summed up their response by abandoning their usual star rating system to award the album a full five question marks.

"Alice the Goon was previously a vinyl-only issue of 500 pieces, available to a lucky few at the Nevers Festival in France. It was hard to come by and selling for high prices on auction websites. Fortunately, for the Nurse With Wound fans not so lucky to be in France, Stephen Stapleton has agreed to allow everyone a chance to hear this music again. The CD features the two songs from the original release plus an additional, untitled piece which many call simply 'Alice the Goon.' The first track sounds like it would fit right in on the Sylvie and Babs release; imagine an old phonograph player belting out a brass-laden instrumental. The second track is a little less involved. The third track, however, sounds right out of A Missing Sense. There is little movement and many drones in this song that could certainly lull you to sleep." --Paul Kustos

"Spiral Insana is one continuous piece of music, indexed over three tracks (on the compact disc), with 20 track titles listed on the cover. Such is Steve Stapleton's Nurse With Wound. And it's just as well, because the music inside, more ambient and user-friendly than on other NWW outings, is still just as surreal and avant-garde as the rest of the catalog. Here, Stapleton and guests Robert Haigh, David Jackman, and Chris Wallis mix bowed piano, percussion, a radio, loops, and what is credited on the sleeve as 'stuff' together into an hour-long collage of mashed-up sounds, jarring juxtapositions, buzzsaw distortion, and even a pipe organ. If that sounds disorienting, that's because it is, both in description and execution. Nurse With Wound has always had a unique sound and vibe on their records, and Spiral Insana carries on in that tradition. While not as ambient and single-minded in tone as the drone masterpiece Soliloquy for Lilith or as jarring as the industrial Dada of Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella, Spiral Insana is as good a place as any to start with the Nurse with Wound catalog." --All Music Guide

Huffin’ Rag Blues by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Huffin’ Rag Blues
United Jnana

Nurse With Wound is the main recording vehicle for British musician Steven Stapleton. Since 1978, with collaborators such as David Tibet (Current 93), John Balance (Coil), Colin Potter and Matt Waldron (Irr. App [Ext]), Nurse With Wound has released dozens of albums that draw on nearly every genre of music. The only constant is that one never knows what the next album will sound like.  Stapleton and Andrew Liles form the core of the band on Huffin' Rag Blues, and the direction to which they are heading is the lounge! Huffin' Rag Blues is unlike any Nurse With Wound album in recent memory as they veer into the space-age bachelor pad. Guest vocalists Lynn Jackson and Freida Abtan channel Peggy Lee, while Matt Waldron also lends his golden pipes to one song. This is truly exotica as imagined by the twisted genius that is Nurse With Wound.

Nurse With Wound

Gyllenskold, Geijerstam And I At Rydberg’s
Durtro / Jnana

This early Nurse With Wound album, re-mastered and packaged in a digipak, contains all three tracks from the original vinyl version ("Several Odd Moments Prior to Lunch," "Phenomenon of Aquarium and Bearded Lady," "Dirty Fingernails"), as well as their re-workings ("Odd," "Aquarium," "Dirty Fingernails") which later appeared on the CD Large Ladies with Cake in the Oven.  The record, first released in 1983, features one of Nurse With Wound's earliest collaborations with David Tibet of Current 93. The album title is a reference to Swedish authors Vilhelm Carlheim-Gyllenskoeld, Gustaf af Geijerstam, and Viktor Rydberg.

Salt Marie Celeste by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Salt Marie Celeste
United Jnana

United Jnana’s Nurse With Wound reissue series continues with Salt Marie Celeste, perhaps the most radical album in the band’s catalog. Similar in spirit to Gavin Bryars’s “The Sinking of the Titanic,” the album’s sixty-plus-minute title track delves deep into the themes of unknown darkness and ultimate demise.  Recorded in 2002 by Steven Stapleton and electronic studio wizard Colin Potter, this is a landmark recording in the field of contemporary electronic music. Best known for founding the legendary UK cassette only label, ICR, Potter has also recorded with Current 93, Organum, Jonathan Coleclough, and Ora. The piece was originally intended to provide aural ambience to an exhibit at London’s Horse Hospital gallery, and a truncated version appeared on the Music for the Horse Hospital CD compilation. Restored here to its hour-plus running time, the music becomes much more of a foreground-listening experience. Orchestral-like chords flutter back and forth like ships lost at sea while the sounds of passing cars, boat horns, and creaking doors slowly gather momentum in the background. At around the fifty-minute mark all the extraneous sounds are cut short, leaving only the droning chords and the sound of water. It’s a stunning effect and quite different than the dense maximalism of earlier albums. The reissue is packaged in a lavish new digipak featuring the artwork of Ruby Wallis and Babs Santini.

Soliloquy For Lilith by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Soliloquy For Lilith
United Jnana

***WAREHOUSE FIND!!! Originally recorded and released in 1988, Nurse With Wound’s ambient opus was years ahead of its time, a ground-breaking set of atmospheric sound patterns designed for ritual ceremonies. Hailed as a masterpiece on release, it soon became a firm favorite of NWW fans and topped the world ambient chart for over three months! Originally a limited-edition three-album set housed in a handsome 12-inch gold and black foil embossed box, this new edition, a CD facsimile of the original vinyl set, contains the entire album plus 40 minutes of superb quality, previously unreleased music from the original sessions. A gold foil blocked cover and new parchment insert makes this one of United Jnana’s most elegant and desirable releases to date.

Drunk With The Old Man Of The Mountains by Nurse With Wound

Nurse With Wound

Drunk With The Old Man Of The Mountains
United Jnana

***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. --Marlene Goldman, Trouser Press
