Nurse With Wound
Sinister Whimsy For The Wretched

2CD set of the out of print Nurse With Wound albums, Sugar Fish Drink and Large Ladies With Cake in the Oven. Can the music live up to the oddness promised by the titles of these things? Honestly, probably. Some of the tracks might be familiar to fans of Nurse With Wound but appear here with different names.

Andrew Liles
Colossus

An ambitious project that originally sought to render every single track that had been Number 1 in the charts throughout Andrew Liles’ fifty-year life into separate 50-minute adaptations - leading to nearly two days of music in total! - Colossus shrinks each version down into 50-second excerpts. 

Nurse With Wound
The Swinging Reflective

The Swinging Reflective is a 1999 compilation that gathers up Nurse With Wound’s collaborations over the preceding nineteen years. And the list of collaborators is pretty extensive, taking in Stereolab, Whitehouse’s William Bennett, Foetus, Jim O’Rourke and Current 93. So many goodies. Double CD reissue on the Dirter label.

Nadja
Desire In Uneasiness

Here comes a re-issue of experimental/ambient music heavyweights Nadja's 2008 album Desire in Uneasiness. It is unique amongst their catalogue in having a live drummer and eschewing guitar in lieu of two (count 'em) basses. It's been remixed and remastered ahead of it's first ever vinyl release having originally been a CD only product back in the day. Expect super slow riffs and weight sonic dirges.

I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral

TFW you Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral. This dramatically-named outfit belongs to Faust guitarist Amaury Cambuzat. The vibe for debut release I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is high-intensity mega-drone, with deeply-treated guitar activity conjuring up fifty-minutes of soundscaping over just two tracks. Released by Dirter.

Nurse With Wound
NWW Play Changez Les Blockeurs

To mark the 35th anniversary of The New Blockaders’ self-released debut album they asked Nurse With Wound to remake it, as Stephen Stapleton is a notorious fan, and who better to take on the experimental and abstract noise that it contained. Comes with brand new artwork from Stapleton and an article by Paul Hegarty.  Very limited release, of course.

Blabbermouth
Hörspiel

Blabbermouth is the fun new project from Lu Edmonds (of The Damned and PiL) and Mark Roberts (of D-Ream and The Godfathers). On Hörspiel the pair provide a soundtrack varying from industrial to ambient while a synthetic speech robot reads texts found on the internet in different languages. Artificial-intelligence-anxiety-core.

Capri-Batterie & Stewart Lee
Bristol Fashion

Fascinating collaboration between stand-up legend Stewart Lee and the Exeter free-jazz trio Capri-Batterie (Kordian Tetkov on drums, Tim Sayer on trumpet & electronics and Matthew Lord on Bass & Saxophone) that proves an assertion Lee has made many times in the past: there’s a lot more humour in avant-garde music than is commonly let on. The recording took place in Bristol over an hour, with the resulting record untampered with.

Whitehouse
Thank Your Lucky Stars

You may have noticed that Whitehouse’s 1990 LP Thank Your Lucky Stars shares its name with a Beach House album that came out a couple of years back. That is where the similarities between the two groups end. Steve Albini had a hand in producing this collection of nasty, grizzled power electronics. This long-overdue reissue comes with four bonus tracks.

Andrew Liles
The Flesh Creeping Gonzoid: Speciality Offal & Other Choice Cuts

Andrew Liles has worked within Nurse With Wound, Current 93, as well as with the likes of Gnod, Faust, and Cosey Fanni Tutti and many more plus his immense solo back catalogue. Here we have a massive box set of 6 CDs of unreleased material, with a bonus DVD of bonus goodies such as outtakes limited releases. Limited to only 500.

Andrew Liles
Cover Girls

Cover Girls is a cunningly diverse collection of women-only covers curated by Nurse With Wound’s Andrew Liles. Featuring the likes of Elisabeth Oswell, Gena Netherwood and Alex Jako covering everything from The Buggles to Einstürzende Neubauten to David Essex. Out on CD digipack from Dirter.

Merzbow
Hyakki Echo

Whilst pushing the 300 album mark, Japanese extreme noise pusher Merzbow is never short of a new idea. Dialing back the noise somewhat, Hyakki Echo is less of a brutal assault of the senses but a freeform experimental affair. Plus, this badboy comes on a CD which is also a vinyl… so… be careful with that. “Compact Vinyl” on Dirter.

Merzbow
Wildwood II

Merzbow follows up last year’s Wildwood CD with an LP of new and complementary material. Again, the proceeds go to the Wildwood trust in Kent, meaning that the king of Japanese harsh noise is directly involved in goings on in the heart of English conservatism. Nice. Fierce textures as ever from Mr. Masami, released by Dirter.

Andrew Liles
Diario de un Monstruo

Andrew Liles, who always keeps himself busy even when not participating in Current 93 and / or Nurse With Wound, releases a homage to one of his favourite albums: Diary Of A Madman by Ozzy Osbourne. The Liles version, Diario de un Monstruo, is a very different beast, featuring plenty of weird and wonderful textures and tricks from a master of the craft. Edition of 500 LPs on Dirter.

RLW
Flurry Of Delusion

Flurry Of Delusion was originally a collection of sounds improvised with Giuseppe Ielasi. But of course, as with anything that comes from the mind of RLW (Ralf Wehowsky), nothing is as it seems. A vibrant mix of improvised industrial and computer-music gives birth to this disparate CD. Encased in a charming full colour digipac on reverse board.

Contrastate
True Believer / The 10/40 Window

Contrastate’s dark and wild world is full of looming shapes, hard to identify. This new 7” from the veteran outfit is a two-track slice of strange electronics and uneasy experimental vocals, adding up to an immersive sound experience that follows its own ritualistic rules. True Believer / The 10/40 Window is out on The Dirter.

Nurse With Wound
Dark Fat

Dark Fat is what happens when Nurse With Wound elect to record all their live performances for a whole decade and then turn their curious eyes to the task of forming some new creature from the audio morass. What we get is a whole new set of compositions: you might catch the ghost of a gig you remember, but don’t bet on it. Double CD on Dirter.

Whitehouse
Halogen

Ah, Whitehouse… You ought to know already if you'll like this or not. Halogen is their 1992 album, brought out here for the first time on the vinyl format. All your favourite Whitehouse tropes: sex, abuse, violence, general nastiness. This unpleasant material comes luxuriously pressed to 180g vinyl, on the Dirter label.

Merzbow
Wildwood

Brand new Merzbow all up in your life, with the kind of ferocity only the Japanese master and a select few other high-functioning noisers can bring. Wildwood is, in accordance with Masami’s hardcore animal welfare principles, a benefit release for a bear rescue charity in Kent: look, there’s one on the cover! I wonder what the bear lovers of Kent will make of this?
