NURSE WITH WOUND LIVE : "Cabbalism" A new LP by NWW & Blind Cave Salamander.
November 2007, Venice. It was cold, damp & foggy. Nurse With Wound were playing 2 nights at the Teatro Fondamenta Nuove, with Blind Cave Salamander as support act. Listening to them perform, Steven Stapleton felt that some of what they played reminded him of the classic Nurse work, "Soliloquy for Lilith".
He suggested that the two bands should explore the possibility of playing live together, to explore that piece, with a view to recording an album.
Forward to September 2009 when, after rehearsals, Nurse With Wound (Steven Stapleton and Colin Potter) and Blind Cave Salamander (Fabrizio Palumbo, Julia Kent and Paul Beauchamp) perform their live version of Soliloquy for the first time at the Mutamento Festival in Turin.
The audience responded with great enthusiasm.
The cabbalistic proceedings of that evening are contained on this recording. This will be in stock early March.

November 2011

NWW and Graham Bowers will shortly release a new CD entitled Rupture through Dirter

Dirter press Release:

This CD is the first collaboration of Steven Stapleton's Nurse With Wound and composer/sculptor Graham Bowers. It is, without doubt, one of the best things we have ever released. It's an extremely unnerving, but also hauntingly moving listening experience. The work is an attempt to create a musical illustration of the "goings-on" in the brain during the last hour and three minutes of a life after suffering a major stroke. It is multi-layered and is primarily concerned with the internal chaos caused by the loss of control of thought processes, responses and consequential actions, with all types of incoherent disjointed memories and present real time events - as well as moments of lucidity, panic and fear - clashing, merging and evolving.
It's essentially one long piece, but is presented in three parts:
1. "...a life as it now is,
2. not what it was,
3. . ...and will never be again"

It arrives packaged in a beautiful 6 panel gloss laminated digipac, featuring artwork from both Babs Santini and Graham Bowers. The edition is limited to just 1000 copies in this format.

It also looks like a 2 disc vinyl version may also be released.

Also just released on Southern Lord a reissue of the Sunn O))) release "ØØ Void" on CD.
The first 1000 numbered copies come with the Nurse With Wound collaboration CD

Just released on Editions Mego Sunn O))) Meets Nurse With Wound "The Iron Soul Of Nothing". A re-issue of the second CD that came with the Sunn O))) release "ØØ Void" as a 2xLP.

tickets available here:

Andrew Liles has announced:

Available at the Andrew Liles Download store is "Der Brennende Acker", a live performance by Andrew Liles and Steven Stapleton.

Please go here to purchase this release -

In 2007 Andrew Liles and Steven Stapleton were commissioned to compose and perform a live soundtrack for the Murnau film "Der Brennende Acker". The performance took place at the prestigious Cité de la Musique, Paris, France on 20th May 2008. Here is a recording of that live event available for the first time in its unabridged form of 1 hour and 50 minutes.

Some original backing parts and themes of this recording were heavily restructured and formed the building blocks to what would later become the Nurse With Wound album 'The Surveillance Lounge'.

"Der Brennende Acker" is considered to be a Murnau masterpiece. The film is dark and moody with very little romance, concentrating on the dark side of life, which is reflected in the greed, and ambition of a prodigal son who arrives home too late to say goodbye to his dying father.

The film was considered lost for a very long time, but in 1978 an almost complete print was found in the estate of an Italian priest who had organised screenings in mental hospitals. credits

ANDREW LILES: Grand Piano, Digital Data Manipulation, Keyboards.
STEVEN STAPLETON: Prepared Guitar, Sound FX, Electronics.

Tourette Records have announced:

Acts of Senseless Beauty
2xLP tourette Records 002
limited to 440 copies on transparent vinyl & art edition of 60 copies with hand made sleeves

As hinted on a cover artwork, original CD documented sketchily research into humanisation of fish in rivers and bodies of water surrounded by large clots of humans - Thames><London, Hudson><New York, Liffy><Dublin, Vltava><Prague and so forth an on and on and over and out.

It also constituted the first publicly documented collaboration of the aforementioned grouping of psycho-acoustic researchers. To fill the side d of the double LP with vibrations appropriate to the occasion, NWW/a revisited underwater lay-line tangents and discovered, not altogether to their surprise, that humanised fish has evolved in the intervening time gap and x-bread with squirrel fearing krustations, thus acquiring a defense mechanism against cosmic fluons constantly passing through their minds causing formation of irritating ideas.

As these highly evolved creatures resent being photographed and punish transgressors by their sharp mind teeth, we present an artist impression on the front page of the gatefold. These creatures constantly shape shift as they move between dimensions 6 and 7, so other artist impressions will be presented in the art series of this release. Music/noise on the track describes in some details conversations and revelations of these Piscus Sapiens Emoticus.

Revelations important to humankind and their pets. Plants of various species and specialities benefit too, some normously, some enormously, mostly succulently, spinally, thornily or smoothly greening.

In other news "The Vernacular Surface" box set is/has been shipping reports:
It has been brought to our attention that the main copies of the LP have a fault. We had heard and approved test pressings, but were yet to hear the actual "hot off the press" run. They are faulty, they have to be re-pressed. We had decided to delay shipping of "The Vernacular Surface" editions until today, as we added a final "layer" to the packing to make sure they arrive all over the world in perfect shape. So, it is with regret that we have to announce that shipping is another week or so away for the limited sets and the actual "Salt" release is now delayed further. The whole set was on display at the excellent NWW show at Koko in London on Sunday and was met with a lot of excitement and praise. Our eternal thanks go to Darius, without whom this would be even more of a mess.

The "Salt" LP release, which is the LP in clear vinyl and comes complete with a full colour insert.

A 12" vinyl art object, which has been individually hand created using mixed media, signed and numbered by Steven Stapleton on one side (each one is unique and original) and is "playable" on the other. The recording on the playable side is unavailable elsewhere and only 100 copies have been made before the metalwork was removed from the pressing plant.

The pre-order price is &#163;175 plus insured shipping to wherever you are.

Anyone who has reserved this and not had an email from us needs to get in contact as soon as possible in order to secure their copy. We have had a few emails returned undeliverable and the edition is close to being fully subscribed.

'ERRONEOUS', a selection of errors? is the result of the meeting of Italian cult band Larsen and Steven Stapleton's ubiquitous creature Nurse With Wound.
Almost 2 years of file swapping and occasional conceptual meetings led to a multi-headed collection of deformed sounds based on one long NWW piece and two Larsen tracks (that both bands have written specifically for this project) then deconstructed and rebuilt by each other into totally brand new opuses.
'ERRONEOUS' also features Neu! and Kraftwerk original member Eberhard Kranemann on additional guitars, synth, sax and vocals as well as Larsen collaborator Daniele Pagliero, a.k.a. Lo Dev Alm, on bass.
Just like the music, the artwork of the album is also a joint effort sporting works of Stapleton's alter-ego Babs Santini, Larsen's graphic designer Bellissimo and E. Kranemann.

In the pipeline on Tourette Records:
Steven Stapleton and Andrew Liles have just finished recording a Nurse With Wound 7" single for Tourette Records.
The as yet untitled E.P will play at 33 1/3 and should come out in the autumn of 2010 in an edition of 600 copies - 500 clear vinyl and 100 as a picture disc.
As with Andrew Liles' 'The Monster Munch E.P' the sleeve will fold out into a 14" x 14" double sided poster.

Beta Lactam Records announced the following release some time back, no further news as yet:
Coming early summer 2010 will be Nurse With Wound "Shipwreck Radio Vol. 1" 4xLP and limited 5xLP set - we have the vinyl in production and the set will be packaged in custom made wooden boxes with an oil stain and silk-screened artwork.

In the pipeline on Dirter:
Paranoia In H-Fi is coming some time this year on vinyl

The expanded edition of Nurse With Wound's 'Insect & Individual Silenced' has just been reissued by United Dairies and is now available in the eie online shop ( It should also be available from various other sources soon. The 'expansion' refers to the addition of the fourth track 'Tooth, Teeth, Milk, Teeth, Skin', created in 2007 for the 'special suitcase edition' that never materialized; a few copies of this track have recently leaked into circulation for ridiculous sums of money, and this version was created to make that track more generally available (and to replace the now scarce and always pricey 2007 reissue of the album). Kevin Spencer's careful remastering work on the original tracks has once again been used, and the original front and back cover images have been restored to their rightful place. br/>

dirter reports:

Behind the scenes at Dirter we've been extremely busy. The Nurse With Wound re-issue series is continuing and we are going back to the original master tapes to achieve the best possible results. We are delighted to say that the UK's finest mastering engineer, Denis Blackham, has been at the helm. Denis should need no introduction, as his expertise and huge legacy are second to none.

Here are a few pictures from the session where the restoration of "To The Quiet Men from a Tiny Girl", "Merzbild Schwet" and "The Sylvie and Babs Hi-Fi Companion" took place. (Check out Dirter's web site)

What you will hear is genuine re-mastering - not tinkering too much, but using the best equipment and calling on Denis' (over) 40 years experience to get far and away the very best sounding versions yet. Stephen Stapleton has heard the results and is absolutely delighted with them. Further news of formats/release dates etc will be announced in due course.

They also announce the following forthcoming releases, amongst others:
"Like Swallowing Eclipses" - Current 93 Dreamt by Andrew Liles. Deluxe 6LP box set

Paranoia In Hi Fi hits the shops 30-NOV-2009 - if you can find it!

October 2009

dirter reports:

NURSE WITH WOUND : Chance Meeting On A Dissecting Table Of A Sewing Machine And An Umbrella DPROMDLP71

Regular edition of the long awaited re-issue of the timeless NWW 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.

2LP set in beautiful gloss laminated sleeve, including printed inners with the legendary "NWW list" as well as sleeve notes by Steven Stapleton. Includes the extra track "Strain, Crack, Break" (never previously available on vinyl) on side three and an etching on side four. reports on a new release "Paranoia in Hi-Fi"

A release to celebrate 30+ years of NURSE WITH WOUND whilst simultaneously being a homage to browsing, searching, chance finds, spending our last penny, random buys, BIG mistakes, best finds ever and to commemorate and thank all the wonderful wonderlands around the world that were and still are (in some cases) RECORD SHOPS...coming to all GOOD record stores... and hopefully a few bad ones as well is -






Paranoia in Hi-Fi collects 30 years of Nurse With Wound recordings in one easy to swallow CD.
This CD confirms what all Nurse With Wound followers have known for many years, and will open the ears for new listeners to the fact that Nurse With Wound have always been an outstandingly innovative and ceaselessly creative force. Never staying still NWW are unpredictable, disconcerting, humorous and always original. With a flagrant disregard and disinterest in musical styles, cliques or fashions the uniquely independent and autonomous NWW have made over 50 albums with no regard and no interest in their critical or commercial reception. Mixing the sublime with the ridiculous Steven Stapleton and NWW uncompromisingly carve their own distinct style that has a musical language and visual landscape entirely of its own. Drawing inspiration from far flung corners including DaDa, Perez Prado, Surrealism, Krautrock and whole cascade of other ideas NWW have created a diverse back catalogue of material from ambient classics (Soliloquy for Lillith) to the disturbed (Homotopy to Marie) and many other easy listening nightmares. NWW is an idyllic and fascinating tropical island way out there on a limb, the visitors who make it to their shores seldom ever want to leave. Paranoia in Hi-Fi covers almost all of NWW's wild and eclectic sinister whimsy and shows that in Steven Stapleton's world everything is possible...possible, possible.

News from dirter:

We are very pleased to announce that we are now taking pre-orders for the first in the United Dirter series of Nurse With Wound vinyl re-issues.

It will be a 2 LP set with the extra track "Strain, Crack, Break" (never previously available on vinyl and appearing for the first time in any format in its intended unedited form) on side three and an etching on side four. There will a special edition and a regular edition of this release.

The special box set will be limited to 500 numbered copies only. Advance subscribers via this website ONLY will have a chance to order one of the first 250 copes, which will come with a signed fine art print.

It will consist of:

The double LP.

A T-Shirt with the legendary "NWW list" in luminous ink on a black shirt. All shirts will be in size "Large". The sets will be shrink-wrapped at factory level, so it is not possible to vary the sizes to order. However, we are offering a chance for anybody to purchase an extra shirt in another specific size, at cost price for the next two weeks. Please email and (important) state only "nww shirt" as the subject if you are interested.

A die cut pin badge of the front image

A beautiful fine art print of the iconic front sleeve on the highest quality art paper. The prints will be made using the original artwork, kindly entrusted to us by David Tibet from his personal collection. Each print will be signed by Steven Stapleton and numbered. It will be a faithful reproduction of the original art down to the finest detail. This is the closest we will get to owning the original artwork.

The collection will be housed in a superb printed matt laminated box, each individually numbered.

We are aware that many of you have been patiently waiting for this for some while now. The delay has been caused by us receiving prototypes of the intended polypropylene box and not being happy with them. So, we had to change the whole design and we're now delighted to offer a set that we feel is really special.

Please note that the shipping on this is very expensive. The packages will weigh well over 1.5 kilos and no copies will be sent uninsured. The cost price to us is far too high to take any chances. So, the shipping charge to your area will include either shipping via insured courier, or insured mail. Either way, the package will have to be signed for.

The pre-order subscriber's price for the set is £45 + shipping. We expect to ship this week beginning August 3rd. If this moves in any way, the website will be updated.

Orders will be accepted for the regular edition in two weeks time.
