Product Description

The follow-up to last year's Rupture sees Steven Stapleton and Graham Bowers exploring the inner reaches of the psyche. Parade is due for release soon on the interdisciplinary arts group/record label Red Wharf and to be distributed by Cargo Parade: The second studio album release by Nurse With Wound and Graham Bowers delves into the multiple manifestations of the human form and psyche. The music is an audio sketch-pad, capturing a Commedia dell Arte type procession of the extremes and banalities of what we are, and what we do, on this bizarre and indefinable one-way trip to oblivion. A continuous and thematic piece of music divided into eight tracks. The CD features original artworks by Babs Santini and Graham Bowers, and a special double vinyl limited edition album is scheduled for release in the Autumn.

This second collaboration between Stapleton and Welsh septuagenarian Graham Bowers is a delight and for me a contender for record of the year (although as I write, I'm distracted by the arcane delight that is NWW and Aranyos' astonishing "[SIC]" belting away in the foreground, just released in predictably rare and unique fashion).
As with almost everything from NWW's vast body of work, there are more ideas crammed into a single minute here than many artists manage in an entire lifetime. I have to say, the man should in any sane world be regarded as a national treasure (and in avant garde circles undoubtedly is). I can't think of anyone else who has committed to thirty odd years of creative endeavour and who in that time has amassed an unparalleled back catalogue of releases (literally hundreds) wherein the quality seldom wavers. I have yet to listen to a Nurse album that I haven't adored on one level or another.
NWW's singular brand of aural surrealism is frequently noted for its ability to jar the senses, to disturb, dislocate and generally scare the hell out of its audience. But to define Nurse music in such simplistic terms is to do it a grave disservice (as was the case historically when NWW were lazily pigeon holed as being part of the industrial underground in the late 70's and early 80's) and to fail to attend to the myriad levels on which it operates. Even the most seemingly spare and austere NWW pieces, when you allow yourself to become fully immersed, comprise multiple layers of subtle activity. Elsewhere, as is the case with "Parade", there is just so much going on, so many delicious textures to captivate the listener without things ever feeling cluttered.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Sept. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Although it has 8 compartments this appears as one continuous piece based upon a rhythm track (Undanceable) in a non accepted sense upon which a layer of sound builds upon its broad shoulders in segmented and distorted layers. Less atmospheric and more dissonant - this brings together two avant composers who play with tonalities and musical depths to move beyond ambient film scores to pin point about some mind altering warped compositions that lead the listener on a journey.

The map of course is the head as the music shapes the structure. Best played on headphones in a confined space to get the full 4D effect of gamelan warpations.

Beyond the Parade!!! 16 July 2013
By Liquid Faith - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've been a Nurse with Wound fan and collector for 5 years now. This is how I can state my review.I like this album more than it's predecessor (both collaborations with Graham Bowers) entitled: Rupture. But Rupture did eventually grow on me and is the most confused of the 2.... and that's saying allot.
The collaboration between Bowers and Stapleton can be looked at as more chaotic and deeper into the surreal world of sound and industrial ambient experimentation. This album unlike Rupture..while still being chaotic has a completely different feel and structure. It is a mad parade. It reminds me in many ways of Sylvie and Babs with a little Thunder Perfect Mind mixed in a big pot,and stirred around with clang juice...just darker,newer and even more dislocated.But both as a collaborations are the broken,diseased,abstract inner workings of a genius surreal mind.
Who knows why. It's all so confusing and mad anyway.
