"The Nurse with Wound list is a list of musicians and bands that accompanied Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella (1979), the first album by Nurse With Wound. The list was expanded with Nurse With Wound's second album, To the Quiet Men from a Tiny Girl.
The list was compiled by the original Nurse With Wound trio of Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, and Heman Pathak. It was intended as a homage to the obscure artists which influenced the Nurse With Wound project. It has since become a type of 'shopping list' for collectors of outsider and avant-garde music. The list only included group names, and collectors have speculated on the specific albums which would have influenced Nurse With Wound. In a 1997 interview in UK magazine The Wire, Stapleton boasted that some of the names on the list were invented, a statement absolutely refuted by John Fothergill in David Keenan's book England's Hidden Reverse, published in 2003. Keenan, having researched the matter, declares Fothergill to be correct." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nurse_with_Wound_list
