Nurse With Wound is a London, UK based music band, formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill and Heeman Pathak. Their early recordings, all made quickly, were heavily influenced by free jazz and krautrock and were generally considered industrial music, despite the objections of the group.
By 1981, only Stapleton was left from the original trio and he now regards 1982’s “Homotopy To Marie”, as being the first proper Nurse With Wound release. There are now over 30 full length NWW titles.
Stapleton’s fondness for dada, surrealism and absurdist humor are demonstrated in much of NWW’s output, which, though it draws directly on nearly every musical genre imaginable (from cabaret music to nursery rhymes to John Cage to The Beach Boys to krautrock to pop music to ambient music and Captain Beefheart) retains a distinctive and recognizable aura.
