HOMOTOPY TO MARIE

Nurse With Wound are set to re-release their celebrated LP, 'Homotopy to Marie'! Originally recorded in 1982 the album was a step on from the Dadaist rock of Merzbild Schwet and 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.

This superb reissue is the official full double album from the original recording sessions. It features the 4 tracks from the original LP plus additional recordings from the same period and is a technically better, crystal clear performance compared to the original 1982 cut from rotorelief.com.  Available in the following formats:

Numbered clear vinyl LP limited to 150 copies in a Metallic gatefold sleeve
Numbered silver & black/white vinyl LP limited to 700 copies in a Metallic gatefold sleeve
Numbered black vinyl LP limited to 800 copies in a Metallic gatefold sleeve

TRIPPIN' MUSIC and EXPERIMENTE
The brand new Nurse With Wound 3LP Boxset, 'TRIPPIN' MUSIC' is scheduled for release in October 2018! We will also be releasing a second 'EXPERIMENTE' CD called 'EXPERIMENTE II, SON OF TRIPPIN' MUSIC' which features unused tracks, ideas, experiments and miscellaneous bric a brac from the making of 'TRIPPIN' MUSIC'. This limited edition CD comes in a handmade sleeve and features 70 minutes of hallucinogenic vibes.

DIE, FLIP AND GO TO INDIA
This soon to be released Nurse With Wound LP is a full studio album from the late 90's. The music was was recently rediscovered on a mislabeled master, thought to be lost forever, as the original DAT was fucked and unplayable, as was often the case with this untrustworthy format. It features four long atmospheric pieces, of which only one has ever been released. 

NWW PLAYS TNB... RELEASED!


In 1982 The New Blockaders self-released their debut LP Changez Les Blockeurs, in an edition of only 100. Steven Stapleton was the very first person to purchase / hear the album and subsequently distributed copies via United Dairies.
 
The LP has since attained a somewhat mythical / legendary status (Record Collector magazine included it in a list of the rarest, most collectable records ever) and 2017 was the 35th anniversary of its original release. In celebration of this, TNB invited Steven Stapleton to rework the original which is now available in all its glory as NWW Play Changez Les Blockeurs. The LP cover features brand new artworks by Steven (a.k.a Babs Santini) and comes with an insert including a TNB / NWW article by Paul Hegarty (author of the much-acclaimed Noise/Music book.)

STEVEN STAPLETON NEW YORK CITY EXHIBITION!

We are very proud to announce Steven Stapleton's first exhibition at May 68 Books and Records in New York City!

From May 68 Books & Records website;

'We are very pleased to present art by Steven Stapleton, the artist's first exhibition in the United States. Stapleton (British, b. 1957), best known for his now 40-year musical project Nurse With Wound, has over this span of time created works that can be seen as a vivid, visual correlation of NWW's most famous designation: "Purveyors of sinister whimsy to the wretched." Stapleton's art, produced under one of his numerous aliases, Babs Santini, has graced the covers of records by Current 93, Shirley Collins, Sol Invictus, Sand, Andrew Liles, The Legendary Pink Dots, and his own releases as NWW.

Stapleton's show with MAY 68 includes seven large framed montage pieces, a term the artist prefers to collage, as montage suggests the sort of filmic dream state he explores within cut-up and reassembled imagery. Though dark, they are also buoyed by irreverent humor and a poetics that the surrealists might identify as navigating the passage between cruelty and tenderness. The great and greatly missed British writer J.G. Ballard would certainly see in Stapleton a kindred re-maker of reality. Stapleton's deftly mischievous sleight-of-hand will recall Dada, Hannah Höch, John Heartfield, Max Ernst, Roland Topor and Bruce Conner. In addition, eight rare test pressings will be shown, each with a unique montage cover, among them Current 93's classic, All the Pretty Horses and a highly sought after unreleased collaboration between Nurse With Wound and Faust'.

The exhibition runs from May 9 to June 3rd.
