Brained By Falling Masonry
A Short Dip In The Glory Hole
A Piece Of The Sky Is Missing
Sarah's Beloved Aunt
It could be argued that Brained and Cooloorta are the definitive NWW E.Ps. Both classic and timeless fan favourites appear for the first time together on one single album.
Both E.Ps marked a distinctive change in the NWW sound. Brained from 1984 showcases NWW at their mid 80’s finest. The relentless churning and uncompromising music of Brained by Falling Masonry is complimented by the eccentric mania of JG Thirlwell’s vocals. A Short Dip in Glory Hole takes us into the murky depths of a David Lynch influenced nightmare, a lysergic unhinged movie for the ears, which greatly influenced the Peter Strickland film Berberian Sound Studio.
Cooloorta Moon from 1989 takes us in a whimsical direction and further highlights the boundless originality of NWW. The evolution of NWW utilising more traditional instrumentation and bordering on the verge of song structures started coming to the fore on this E.P.
In addition to all the original songs from the Cooloorta and Brained EPs, the 2010 track, Sarah’s Beloved Aunt perfectly closes this collection.
