09.09.08: Guest Dj Stepehen Holman....Tribute to NURSE WITH WOUND

"A loose experimental project formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton, Nurse with Wound explored abstract music -- influenced by Krautrock, freewheeling jazz improvisation, and Throbbing Gristle but including a heavy debt to surrealists Dali and Lautréamont -- with an overpowering release schedule of limited-edition albums and EPs. Stapleton worked with an ever-changing list of collaborators during the early years of Nurse with Wound, though Current 93's David Tibet has been the only frequent recording companion during the 1980s and '90s."

Additionally, Mr. Stapleton has continued his relentless output to the present day. He has continued to explore and expand the outer reaches of experimental music while always showing his somewhat dark sense of humor.His contemporary collaborators include (as always) David Tibet, Colin Potter, Andrew Liles and the legendary German collective Faust.

Our (returning) guest DJ is Stephen Holman! In addition to his impressive resume of directing, writing and performing (please visit www.wholesomeproductsfilms.com), Stephen is also die-hard Nurse With Wound collector and scholar. This show will undoubtedly include many rarities from the enormous NWW recorded output as well as brand new material (that is actually still in print!)
