A 7″ by Nurse With Wound, these days old master Steven Stapleton and ‘young man’ Andrew Liles, its always a good idea. They can create a short piece of music that works well on this format. On the a-side we have a piece for drums, bass and guitar in a proggy style and some spoken word (female of course, courtesy of Liles no doubt, and with a sexual explicit content – the old in-out). It makes an excellent Nurse With Wound piece combining their ever (but not always) present interest in krautrock textures and a fine spoken word cut-up thing. That’s how to do a great a-side of a 7″.
The b-side is more contemplative and a duet for two guitars – duelling guitars even? – but sampled and spliced together and slowly building in rhythm and intensity, and with weird ending – like cut from something bigger. Nice enough, but not more than just that, a nice piece of music. I reminded of someone who once released an one-sided 7″ ‘as no-one ever listens to the other side anyway’. I’d rather a have piece then that is just below par than nothing. (FdW)
