THE NEWT HOUNDS
Back in the early 1990's Steve designed a snazzy Nurse With Wound T-Shirt called "The Newt Hounds".
Earlier than that, when Steve was planning the SYLVIE & BABS HI-FI COMPANION we (Alan & Steve Freeman) were amongst the many invited (due to Steve liking some of our early experimental tapes under the guise of ZBB and Vrije, aka Alto Stratus) but being financially destitute at the time we never made it. We thus eventually cooked up the idea for a project of our own called The Newt Hounds, and here's the info...

Could this be an irreverent homage to Nurse With Wound?
...or is it a Dadaist/surreal musical vision of the world of B. Kliban?
