NURSE WITH WOUND – Two Shaves And A Shine

Nurse with Wound (abbreviated NWW) is the main recording name for British musician Steven Stapleton. Nurse with Wound was originally a band, formed in 1978 by Stapleton, John Fothergill and Heman Pathak. The band’s work has explored genres such as industrial, noise, dark ambient, and drone. “Two shaves and a shine” is taken from An Awkward Pause (1999)

In little sunrise of goblin eyes
I watch the coupling of the flies
Under waving trees and bumble bees
I strain to amputate my knees

With cockroach cutters made of mutton
My eyes gleam green as moss jade buttons
I will not wake from childish dreams –
I cannot bear to catch the screams

I cannot bear to catch the screams
Of bugs impacting on windshield screens
I shave my tab with turquoise sickle
From its stub the fishes trickle

My stunted fingers, piss-stained knuckles
Clogged with blood, start to buckle
Murdered turtles, mildew, moss
Dead pets in gardens – I’m the boss!

My smile is wide in seas of cider
Pull your teeth with geese and spiders
Cup these jaws in my hand
Make them jig in globs of sand

I write these words to pass the time
And stay alive – two shaves and shine
– And block out the sound of chickens’ wails
Defeathering them on beds of nails

Yeah

Contort yourself
Contort yourself

Contort yourself
Contort yourself

Contort yourself
Contort yourself
