    "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

    Fantastic stuff, thanks!

    My first encounter (so to speak) with NWW was on the Stereolab collection 'Refried Ectoplasm' - their collaboration on Crumb Duck. I haven't beern able to track down the actual Crumb Duck EP anywhere, though...

    EDIT: Went to Amazon to look up the book. I'll wait for the paperback edition to come out in June, I think...

    Nice! I have 'Homotopy to Marie' at home. Wonderfully eerie and haunting.

    I'd be very interested in checking out 'Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella'.

    I was listening to it today -- 1979 was a great year for music.

    That's a nice list, judging by the names that I know.

    Though it would be considerably shorter if they just said "every krautrock, RIO and zeuhl band".

    True, but at the cost of foregoing the pleasure of hearing David Tibet incanting the names.
