NURSE WITH WOUND / A Sucked Orange (1990)

A collection of audio clippings, unused oddities and leftovers from the NWW discography from 1979-88. With twenty-nine tracks totalling over fifty 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 specific atmosphere for a brief time before being shuffled aside to make way for something new. It's like opening twenty-nine different doors in Steven Stapleton's mind and witnessing twenty-nine different aspects of his psyche. Needless to say, it's not for the uninitiated.
