Limited edition silver/black colour vinyl. Black wax also available.

Long-awaited reissue of the timeless Nurse With Wound 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.

Members include: John Fothergill (synthesizer, guitar, keyboards, wind), Heman (synthesizer, guitar, keyboards, wind), Nicky Rogers (guitar), and Steve Stapleton (synthesizer, flute, guitar, keyboards).

The album's equally unusual title is a quote from the surreal, poetic novel 'Les Chants de Maldoror' by Uruguayan-born French author Isidore-Lucien Ducasse, written under the pseudonym Comte de Lautréamont.

It has been included in the "100 Records That Set the World on Fire (While No One Was Listening)" by The Wire in 1998, and is one of the records that have had a lasting impact on avant-garde, experimental and psychedelic music. It was on this record that the famous "NWW list" appeared for the first time, featuring dozens of names of musicians and groups who had influenced Nurse With Wound - a list that now serves as a treasure map for many collectors of the genre and fans of outsider music.

It's been replicated here in the innersleeve of the gatefold.
