NURSE WITH WOUND / A Sucked Orange (1990)

This is a collection of audio clippings, unused oddities and leftovers from the NWW discography from 1979 - 88.  With 29 tracks totalling over 50 minutes of NWW music / sampling / weirdness it’s a very mixed bag.  Some are ambient (Spiral Theme) and some are brain melting (Rockette Morton).  Each one creates a very specific atmosphere for a brief time before being shuffled aside to make way for something new.  It’s like opening 29 different doors in Steven Stapleton’s mind, and witnessing 29 different aspects of his psyche.  Needless to say, it’s not for the uninitiated.
