LIVIN’ FEAR OF JAMES LAST or… JOY IN THE HOUSE OF DADA…
NURSE WITH WOUND (Band)
A ‘Best Of’ Variety Pack Collection of Hits - Double / 2 x CD Set
A NURSE WITH WOUND Variety Pack - ‘Best of’ collection of Nurse With Wound songs compiled by Steven Stapleton himself - Stapleton is the head ‘nurse’ and the original member of the surreallistic, dada, experimental, ever-changing band - Nurse With Wound… the band is Steven Stapleton and a cast of helping band members that is different on each release.
This CD is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in NWW but does not already know their work - it is a two disc set with songs from all of the various styles and periods of NWW music - over a period of several years from the 80s to current times - this CD touches on older and newer works - from surrealistic spoken word stories and non-structured experimental dadaistic sound-scapes to actual structured songs that ‘rock’.
Included is an excellent cover of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention’s tune ‘Trouble Comin’ Everyday’ from the first album ‘Freak Out’ - although this song was written by Zappa in ‘65/ ‘66 the lyrics couldn’t be more current - and the NWW version is amazing - also included is the hard rocking track ‘Two Shaves and a Shine’ - a song from the NWW album ‘An Awkward Pause’ - with David Tibet on vocals ( from ‘Current 93’ ) - in my opinion this is David Tibet’s best vocal track ever - incredible lyrics and delivery - also includes the spoken word / story track titled ‘A New Dress’ - a hilarious story about an abusive girlfriend. Some of the most bizarre ‘art music’ ever.
This double CD set is a great starting point to familiarize oneself with Nurse With Wound’s work - and if you are a fan already it is still a great CD to add to your collection. A diverse cross-section of work. Cover Art as usual by Babs Santini.
