Sleeve Notes
On completing Rock 'n Roll Station, we had recorded many more tracks than were actually used.
This double CD contains all the music from the entire Rock 'n Roll sessions.

When the album was finished all work on remaining tracks ceased.

Reviews
Nurse With Wound have recently issued "Second Pirate Session", a limited release featuring the entire "Rock'n Roll Station" sessions. This is a two-disc set with about 80 more minutes on it than the original release. It's hypnotic, pulsating, and provides a wonderful ambiance to any type of listening activities. Quite a departure from NWW's sound to begin with, this is a "complete picture" of the entire session. Well worth its price.

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 it never happened. These tracks were never fully completed and in hindsight benefit from their stripped-down atmosphere.
Second Pirate Session contains some of my favourite NWW songs.
