Back in 2005, 3 special performances took place featuring Steve Stapleton, Colin Potter, Andrew Liles, Matt Waldron and Diana Rogerson. The gigs were held on 6 & 7 May at The Anatomical Museum / Narrenturm, Vienna (Austria). Each concert was limited to 50 seats. Fun was had. Lab coats optional. To commemorate the event, a limited edition of 200 CDRs was released by ICR and Klanggalerie, only available at the Vienna live shows.
In 2023, ICR re-issued this on CD expanded to include 2 new tracks, adding an extra 54minutes. These 2 tracks were constructed from the original source material with some extra sounds & they have been editied to form the 2 sides of this record.
The download includes the track that appeared on the original CDR edition.

Thanks to Petr Vastl, Amantine, Isabelle, Doris & Walter Robotka of Klanggalerie.

Review by Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly :

Years ago, I gave up thinking about Nurse With Wound's discography. I love the music, but to keep up with the various versions of their releases, no, sorry, not for me. I understand the love to release everything on LP; we're old hippies anyway, but I love a good-quality CD. I don't get the story about this LP. In 2005, Nuurse With Wound played two nights in Vienna, and 200 CDRs were given away for these shows. So far, so good, but "in 2023, ICR re-issued this on CD expanded to include two new tracks, adding an extra 54 minutes. These two tracks were constructed from the source material with some extra sounds & they have been edited to form the two sides of this record. The download includes the track that appeared on the original CDR edition." So, on LP is then... wait... which version? It would help if you had a doctorate there. Nurse With Wound's recycling of releases is attractive, but their recycling of sounds is even more. Any old sound can re-appear in a totally unrelated form. While both pieces have unrelated titles, the music has similarities. There is the use of voices, which is massive in both pieces. They whisper words, maybe, or sounds, also possible, and they are massively layered. In 'The Little Dipper Minus Three', extensive drone material may be generated from pushing these voices through effects, foremost this being reverb. Something similar happens in 'Echo Poeme Sequence No. 3', a text in French that goes through a delay line, and there is also humming. Both pieces have this excellent mysterious quality, and both sound very much like Nurse With Wound, adding that wonderful, unclassifiable extra that makes them the great wizards of the studio.
