Nurse With Wound 'Homotopy to Marie' Special Edition 2CD with book

£18.00

Homotopy To Marie is the fifth album by Nurse With Wound, released in 1982,  created by Steven Stapleton, music and sleeve. 2 CD version with a 26 pages art book in silverfoil hardback cover.

The album is “a step on from the Dadaist rock of Merzbild Schwet, with much use of tape manipulation and classical avant-garde techniques”. The album which combined tape edits with resonating gong tones and disembodied children’s voices to create a sonic collage far removed from the harsh improvisations of the group’s early albums.

The title of the brief closing track derives from a passage from Les Chants de Maldoror, a surreal poetic novel written by Le Comte de Lautréamont. This appropriation of a phrase from Maldoror is shared in common with the title of Nurse With Wound’s debut album Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella; both phrases appear in Lautréamont’s work.

The album was first issued on Stapleton’s own United Dairies label on vinyl, cassette and later in remastered compact disc including an extra track « Astral Dustbin Dirge »

This masterpiece reissue, is the official full double album from the original recording sessions. The 4 tracks from the original LP plus additional recordings from the same period.

Accompanying the Silver Series is the beautiful 24 sewn art pages of artworks by Steven Stapleton, in a deluxe silver hardcover book + 2CD version.
