THE NURSE WITH WOUND LIST...

I doubt that any of Nurse With Wound realised it at the time, but the list that accompanied the first Nurse With Wound album, (and also the revised version, included with their second) has become almost like a bible for the intrepid musical adventurer. Sporting the enigmatic text: "Categories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided..." it has become legendary, as a reference list of revolutionary music, and a challenge to Nurse With Wound collectors around the world, who curious enough to want to hear all the music on it. Of course, this is not an easy task, as the full list nears 300 artists, and many are extremely obscure! As Steve once pointed out, some artists are listed for obvious reasons, some less-so, some are there just for one track!

The original list...

categories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided

Over the years lots of curious people have persistantly enquired as to what all these revolutionary artists are, what albums they should buy, etc. Well, in a bid to help you out, we've put together our own guide, suggesting the recording we beleive that the artist is listed for. As many of these were John Fothergill's or Heeman Pathak's choices, we may be wrong with our assumption on some, however we've tried to pick out what seems like the most logical pointer to the influences behind Nurse With Wound. We did have the idea to give descriptions on all these too, but that would have been an awesome task, and would have spoilt the fun! In the spirit of all things Nursey, we included one "bogus" entry, to see if anyone would notice. Steve didn't, and it seems neither did anyone else, that is not not until over 10 years later. So, well-done to Simon Pound for noting the bogus entry of Heldon. I'd even forgotten about it myself!

Key to abbreviations used...
