Nurse with Wound exists 39 years. Nurse With Wound is Steven Stapleton - Steven Stapleton is Nurse With Wound.
Next week 2nd part with interview Steven Stapleton.
Actually there is the first solo art exhibition of Steven Stapleton at Burren College of Art in Ireland (4/5 till 9/6). As opener of this exhibition Steven did a Sleep Concert from 10 pm till 4 am (and with a repaet until 5:15 pm).

A Brief Nurse With Wound History (from http://www.brainwashed.com/nww/words/audion.html ) 197? Inspired by the indie scene, three friends in North London have the idea to form a group, drawing on their experience in collecting Krautrock, progressive and avant-guarde musics. 1978 Nurse With Wound are formed. Original line-up of: Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill and Heeman Pathak. Offer from Nicky Rogers to use his studio. Record debut LP without any rehersals or proper planning, in December, the band are excited with the results, and a finished mixed product is soon created. 1979 Finances for release of the debut LP are sorted out. Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella is issued in early Summer as a numbered edition of 500 copies. To gain attention, Steven puts his artistic talents to good use and gives the album a startlingly bizarre cover. Chance Meeting... gets the unusual accolade of ????? (instead of *****) as points of recommendation in Sounds! Later in the year Jacques Berrocal comes to London and joins in sessions for a second album: To the Quiet Men from a Tiny Girl, and a less focused style, a side-step to more jazzy and ethnic free-form realms. Heman Pathak ceases to be a regular member. He later established his own project: Hastings Of Malawi. 1980 Nurse With Wound continue to work as a duo of Steven Stapleton and John Fothergill. Third album, Merzbild Schwet, is recorded. A dedication to the dadaists, it marks a new direction in style, with more dramatic studio effects, use of voice and collage. In the Summer, To the Quiet Men... and Merzbild Schwet are released simultaneously, both as special numbered 500 copy limited editions. Steven discovers Whitehouse. John Fothergill gets Lemon Kittens for United Dairies. 1981 Nurse With Wound, in essense, becomes the solo project of Steven Stapleton (and whoever he cares to work with) and he goes on to record Insect and Individual Silenced with the aid of John Thirwell (best known of "Foetus") and Trevor Reidy. Not a very well received album, nowadays rejected as "terrible," even by Steven Stapleton himself! John Fothergill goes on to production of other projects. Steven collaborates with Whitehouse, live in concert and in studio, and together they record the album The 150 Murderous Passions..., with Nurse With Wound in control on one side, Whitehouse on the other. 1982 Time of the "Industrial Boom" and numerous contributions to compilations on record and cassette. Homotopy to Marie is recorded and released, a step on from the Dadaist rock of Merzbild Schwet, with much use of tape manipulation and classical avant-guarde techniques. 1983 Steven meets David Tibet. David Tibet starts collaborating with Nurse With Wound, and also establishes his own group Current 93. Nurse With Wound sign up to a new divison of the Belgian label Les Disques du Crepuscule: L.A.Y.L.A.H. Records. Steven and David Tibet record together as Nurse With Wound the coldly electronic and abstract mini-album Gyllensköld, Geijerstam and I at Rydberg's. 1984 Steven meets Diana Rogerson. Concerts in Britain and Europe. Recordings as Aeolian String Ensemble, a planned album doesn't materialise, only contributions to compilations exist. Mini-album Brained by Falling Masonry dedicated to Brainticket's Cottonwoodhill, backed by an abstract excursion dedicated to the film Eraserhead. Extensive work with Current 93 from this point on, in parallel to Nurse With Wound, excepting live work Steven is involved either as a musician or engineer/producer on most releases. 1985 Sessions and concerts with various projects, with: Current 93, Annie Anxiety, D&V, some recordings end up as what can be heard on three albums titled Live at Bar Maldoror. Completion of the ambitious opus The Sylvie and Babs High-Fi Companion, a concept on 60's pop music, with a huge guest cast-list, and lots of hijacked pop records. Debut album by Diana Rogerson, offering a rocky and daring twist on the Nurse sound, with extraordinary X-rated lyrics! 1986 Recordings with the German band Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa, Organum, and numerous other sessions. Scrag cassette issued, featuring leftovers from Sylvie and Babs... and Diana Rogerson sessions. Further projects and releases on United Dairies, including the first in the Automating series mopping up classic tracks by Nurse With Wound previously only available on various artist albums (including remixes). Nurse With Wound signs to the Dutch label Torso Records for Spiral Insana, a very complexly technical album, like a patchwork quilt of sonic snapshots, sewn together in a most unusual manner. Reissue of most of the United Dairies and Nurse With Wound back-catalogue on cassette. Second Diana Rogerson album. 1987 Various projects and United Dairies releases. Attempt to get an Uli Trepte album together. Special limited edition project of 100 uniquely presented albums: Drunk with the Old Man of the Mountains, each with individual artwork covers and inserts painted by Steven Stapleton, it collected Steven's favorite unreleased recordings made during the Sylvie and Babs... to Spiral Insana era. 1988 Idle Hole Records is started, as an attempt to go professional, first release is Soliloquy for Lilith, a triple boxed set of meditative music. Meanwhile on United Dairies is the curious avant-rock mini-album Alas the Madonna Does Not Function. Further United Dairies productions by Masstishaddhu and Current 93. 1989 Steven moves to Ireland. People Who Can't, a division of Vinyl Experience in London, agree to take on the production of new United Dairies releases, and issue A Sucked Orange, a collection of 28 tidbits covering almost every style of Nurse With Wound. It's the first Nurse With Wound production to be released on CD. In celebration of his new home, Cooloorta Moon offered a very different Nurse With Wound. Steven announces in the press, following his move to Ireland, a hiatus of Nurse With Wound activity, yet numerous releases appear (in the years 1989 to 1993) with a proliferation of reissues, compilations, and collections of previously unreleased music. Recording starts on Lumbs Sister, an ongoing project to score Chris Wallis's surreal film. 1990 People Who Can't are dissolved and become "World Serpent" handling United Dairies and other labels. Tony Wakeford (from Sol Invictus) helps with the Nurse With Wound records Soresucker. Early albums reissued as a limited edition deluxe box set Psilotripitaka (on LP and CD). 1991 Special project The Sadness of Things is realised by Steven Stapleton and David Tibet, in parallel to Nurse With Wound and Current 93 productions. Nurse With Wound's Creakiness, half and LP created in the manner of Sylvie and Babs..., though derived from the sound effects of classic cartoons like Roadrunner. 1992 Start recording at Colin Potter's IRC Studio. Thunder Perfect Mind sessions, taking Nurse With Wound to more electronic industrial realms. Steven records Revenge of the Selfish Shellfish with Tony Wakeford, making a really creepy gothic album, full of Nurse trademarks and the unexpected. 1993 Further reissues, collaborations, productions, etc., including extensive remixing of recordings by Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, and Stereolab. CD compilations of material previously only on record, including remixes and rare tracks. 1994 Fifteen years of Nurse With Wound, and a startling new twist with Rock 'n' Roll Station, a weird techno album! Planned release of Lumbs Sister soundtrack as a 2CD set, to coincide with the release of the film. Planned release of Automating Vols. 1-3 as a 2CD set.

"Rockette Morton" was originally composed for Barooni's A Bead to a Small Mouth compilation but not used there, some other pieces are recognisable as being from Spiral Insana sessions, and there are also snippets from the forthcoming Lumbs Sister. Lumbs Sister 12" EP Yankji 3 (b/w Current 93, Sol Invictus) "Part 3" (c)1989 Steven Stapleton, Rose McDowall Brained/Gyllensköld LP, CD L.A.Y.L.A.H. LAY 30 Brained "Glory Hole" "Brained" Gyllenköld "Odd" "Aquarium" "Dirty Fingernails" (c)1990 (Recorded 1983) This is a remixed and repackaged version of the two record releases Gyllensköld, Geijerstam and I at Rydberg's and Brained by Falling Masonry. The mix, traack details and running order were incorrect, and it was withdrawn from release. A corrected Gylensköld/Brained release was never issued. Psilotripitaka 4LP, 4CD United Dairies UD 0123 Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella "Two Mock Projections" "The Six Buttons of Sex Appeal" "Blank Capsules of Embroidered Cellophane" To the Quiet Men from a Tiny Girl "Umbrella Link" "She Alone Hole and Open" "Ostranenie" Merzbild Schwet "Futurismo" "Dada X" The Ladies Home Tickler "Duelling Banjos" "Registered Nurse Second Coming" (c)1990 (Recorded 1979-1980) Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, Herman Pathak + Jacques Berrocal, William Bennett, Jim Thirwell This is a special limited edition box set (1000 copies) containing remastered version of the first three Nurse With Wound albums (the LPs came with pastel tinted covers), plus an EP of two compilation contribution tracks: The Ladies Home Tickler. The Merzbild Schwet CD insert was incorrectly printed. Later CD reissues of other discs in this set also have some of the artwork arranged differently. Lumbs Sister 3LP Cerne 03 (other LPs by Current 93, Sol Invictus) "Part 1" "Part 2" "Part 9" "Part 12" (c)1990 This seemed to be a promotional idea by World Serpent to present Current 93, Sol Invictus, and Nurse With Wound to fans of the music of the others. An ill-conceived idea that gained a very mixed reaction. The Sol Invictus album has been reissued separately. Burial of the Stoned Sardine 7" Harbinger 01 (b/w Current 93) "Burial of the Stoned Sardine" (c)1990 (Recorded 1983, remixed 1990) Sinister Senile 7" Shock SX 004 "Human, Human, Human" "Psychedelic Underground (In Memory of Lüüd Noma)" (c)1990 Steven Stapleton, David Jackman, H.

No ß?!)" "Tickling that Great Pudarkus in the Sky" "Psychedelic Underground" (c)1990 (Recorded 1984-1986) Annie Anxiety, Steven Stapleton, Chris Wallis, David Tibet, Diana Rogerson, John Balance This includes various live concert recordings, and new mock live versions of tracks that have appeared on other releases. It is thus not a compilation, nor is it anything to do with the earlier Live at Bar Maldoror releases. The Sadness of Things LP, CD United Dairies UD 037 (credited to Steven Stapleton & David Tibet) "The Sadness of Things" "The Grave and Beautiful Name of Sadness" (c)1991 Steven Stapleton, David Tibet + Ruby Wallis, Joolie Wood, Geoff Cox Creakiness LP United Dairies UD 035 (b/w Spasm) "Creakiness" - Hair, Fur, and Twigs Jameson - Delilah's Lap - Creakiness - Admirals of the Blim - Electric Fretum Attachment (c)1991 Steven Stapleton, Joolie Wood, James Mannox, Tony Wakeford An odd idea this, as the Spasm side was totally incompatible with the craziness of Nurse With Wound! Homotopy to Marie CD United Dairies UD 013 "I Am Blind" "Homotopy to Marie" "Astral Dustbin Dirge" "The Schmürtz" "The Tumultuous Upsurge" (c)1992 (Recorded 1982) The is the full length version of the Homotopy to Marie album, as "Astral Dustbin Dirge" was cut from the LP originally due to it being too long to fit at the end of side 1 of the record. Thunder Perfect Mind CD United Dairies UD 040 "Cold" "Colder Still" (c)1992 Steven Stapleton, David Tibet, Colin Potter + Chris Wallace, Rose McDowall, Anita Plank, Alan Trench, John Balance, Joolie Wood, Clive Graham, Konori Suzuki This was issued amidst much publicity as the companion to Current 93's album of the same name, though musically it has nothing to do with it. Steve's explaination for this (check the interview in Audion #28) is most intriguing! Steel Dream March of the Metal Men 7" Clawfist 12 "Steel Dream March of the Metal Men" "The Dadda's Intoxication" (c) 4/92 Steven Stapleton, Colin Potter Revenge of the Selfish Shelfish CD Tursa 004 (credited to Tony Wakeford & Steven Stapleton) "Falling from Heaven" "Amoeba" "Amphimixis" "Revenge of the Selfish Shellfish" "Walk the White Ghost" "Lucifer Before Sunrise" "Flower Dream Song" "Our Lady of the Wild Flowers" "The Frightened City" "Melancholy of the Street" (c)1992 Tony Wakeford, Steven Stapleton A unique and haunting work that dramatically bridges from gothic styles (eg: Dead Can Dance) through to almost painfully powerful avant-guarde electronics, with many of those typically Nurse With Wound touches. Alien 7" World Serpent WS7 003 "Alien" "Alien" (c)1992 Steven Stapleton, Colin Potter Sugar Fish Drink CD United Dairies UD 036 "Cooloorta Moon" "Creakiness" Hair, Fur, and Twigs Jameson Delilah's Lap Creakiness Admirals of the Blim Electric Fretum Attachment "I Am the Poison" "Swamp Rat" "A Piece of the Sky Is Missing" "Nil by Mouth" "Brained (Unconscious Mix)" (c)1992 (Recorded 1984-1991) Steven Stapleton + Tony Wakeford, Dik, David Tibet, Douglas P., Chris Wallis, David Jackman, Bradford Steer, Joolie Wood, James Mannox, Diana Rogerson, Tathata Wallis, Babs Santini. Compiled from various vinyl releases: Faith's Favourites, Cooloorta Moon, Soresucker, Creakiness, Alas the Madonna Does Not Function, plus a bonus radical spaced-out remix of Brained by Falling Masonry. Many tracks are slightly different from the original versions. The Ladies Home Tickler CD United Dairies UD 00 "Duelling Banjos" "Registered Nurse Second Coming" (c)1993 (Recorded 1979-1980) Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, Heman Pathak + Jacques Berrocal, William Bennett, Jim Thirlwell This features the two "Registered Nurse" compilation contributions tracks from Second Coming and Hoisting the Black Flag, so compiled as they are variations on the same idea. This CD was originally compiled for inclusion in the Psilotripitaka box set. The LP version has never been released separately. Large Laides with Cake in the Oven CD United Dairies UD 038 "Bearded Lady" "Odd" "Aquarium" "Dirty Fingernails" "Sheila Na Gig" "Red Flipper" "Head Cold" "Scapegoat" "Cranke" "Wisecrack" "Glory Hole" "Brained" (c)1993 Steven Stapleton, Diana Rogerson, David Tibet, Romann Jugg, Clint Ruin Compiled from various record releases: Gyllensköld Geijerstam and I at Rydberg's, Brained by Falling Masonry, Crank/Wisecrack, the Ptolemaic Terrascope record, and other sources. Many tracks are remixes, or are slightly different from the original versions.

Crumb Duck 10" Clawfist Records 20 (credited to Stereolab & Nurse With Wound) "Animal or Vegetable (A Wonderful Wooden Reason)" "Exploding Head Movie" (c)1993 No musician details are given. This is a recording by Stereolab and Nurse With Wound mixed by Steven Stapleton, the Side A being an obvious dedication to Faust. Rock 'n' Roll Station CD United Dairies UD 039 "Rock 'n' Roll Station" "The Self Sufficient Sexual Shoe" "Two Golden Microphones" "A Silhouette and a Thumbtack (Dance in Hyperspace)" "R+B through Collis Browne" "Finsbury Park, May 8th, 1.35 pm (I'll See You in Another World)" (c)1994 Steven Stapleton, Colin Potter + Peat Bog, Sarah Fuller, Sarah Dawson, Dizzy, Ruby Wallis, Chrystal Belle Scrodd For information on possible future projects and planned releases you should read the interview in Audion #28, and also check out the history in this Guide, and don't forget to keep a look out in future issues of Audion magazine! Compilation Appearances The Second Coming LP Come Organization wdc 88.1006 "Registered Nurse Second Coming" (c)1981 Steven Stapleton, Heman Pathak, Jim Thirlwell The actual title to the Nurse With Wound track was originally unknown, being an unreadable jumbled dadaist mass of Letraset letters! Also featured on the LP are tracks by Come, Whitehouse, and The Sodality. Sounds Cosmodel LP Atelier Peyotl APSF 018 "I Gan Noo Wha Ma Organs Gan" (c)1981 Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill Hoisting the Black Flag LP United Dairies UD 06 MC United Dairies UDT 02 "Duelling Banjos" (c)1981 The "Duelling Banjos" featured here (now available on The Ladies Home Tickler) is not the same as that featured on the Automating Vol. 1 compilation. That version is mixed together with Registered Nurse Second Coming, with a military drum rhythm added, and is thus radically different. This album also included tracks by: Lemon Kittens, Truth Club, David Cross, Hamilton & Duarte, Whitehouse, and the Mental Aardvarks.
