Description

The original release of Nurse with Wound’s gargantuan “Thunder Perfect Mind” in 1992 coincided with that of Current 93’s homonymous genre-defining album. Legend has it that the gnostic name initially appeared to Steven Stapleton in a dream as the title of Tibet’s then still nameless upcoming album. Both records feature contributions from David Tibet, Colin Potter, Rose McDowall, John Balance of Coil, Alan Trench of Orchis and Joolie Wood, amongst others. The title and the partial overlap of the personnel on both albums isn’t quite where the similarities end. Both albums have since become undisputed milestones in their respective artists’ oeuvre. At the core of the definitive 2023 Infinite Fog re-release, fully overseen by Steven Stapleton, are the two original tracks “Cold” – a classic unsettling rhythmic Nurse collage-fest, significantly closer to jittery psychelia than the oft-cited “industrial feel”, and the epic “Colder Still”, easily one of the most mind-bending breathtaking NWW compositions up to this point and well beyond. The track soothes with its ghostly atmosphere, and reveals new surprises with every listen, not least of which is a direct link to its sister release from C93 as well as the first appearance of the signature rhythm loop that would mutate and re-emerge on several later tracks. The album also is the first full-length collaboration with genius sound wizard Colin Potter who has since become a ubiquitous sidekick both on Nurse albums as well as in live performances. As a follow-up to what is widely acknowledged as one of the best-loved exercises in drone of the 20th century “Soliloquy for Lilith”, TPM is a much more varied but at least equally rewarding experience. Infinite Fog are beyond pleased to be able to offer a significantly enhanced, remastered and extended 3 LP version for old and new fans alike.

SPECIAL NOTE FROM INFINITE FOG:
Some of us love picture disc vinyl, and some don’t. Nurse With Wound happen to love picture discs, but please take note: picture “vinyl” is in no way an audiophile format, it’s strictly a collectible format. This applies particularly to Nurse With Wound’s music, with its wide stereo spread, swirling high frequencies, and deep droning basses. The more stereo and bass, the wider and deeper the grooves have to be, to provide all information to the needle. But picture discs have only a very thin plastic foil over the pictures. It’s not vinyl, but instead is plastic, similar to plastic bottles. Deep and wide grooves can’t be pressed on picture discs, meaning they won’t sound as good as regular LPs. This is true for ALL picture disc LPs, not only NWW. Of course, our picture LP editions are enjoyable to listen to! But to get the best sound quality please choose the 2CD version, those sound best. For your collection just buy whatever you think looks best. (UPDATE: PICTURE DISCS ARE SOLD OUT!)
