NURSE WITH WOUND / A Handjob from the Laughing Policeman (2006)

Handjob is a one track release from the 'purveyors of sinister whimsy to the wretched,' NWW.  This time Stephen Stapleton is joined by Colin Potter; together they offer a kind of remix of "Shipwrecked Radio" outtakes and various oddities from their past collaborations that clocks in at 44 minutes.
It starts slow but gathers momentum with a great loop based tribal rhythm.  The latter half slows down once more to a familiar kind of ambient drone.
It was limited to 300 copies but you can bag it from the official bandcamp page in exchange for some currency.
With over 80 albums in the NWW discography it can be hard to know which, if any, are worth your time.  This one isn't their best work but it's not their worst either.
