Nurse with Wound ist eine 1978 vom britischen Musiker Steven Stapleton gegründete Avantgarde-Band.

Geschichte[Bearbeiten]

Steven Stapleton, der zuvor als Roadie bei verschiedenen Krautrock-Bands, unter anderem Guru Guru und Kraan, gearbeitet hatte, erhielt durch Nicky Rogers das Angebot, günstig ein Aufnahmestudio zu benutzen. Zusammen mit John Fothergill und Heeman Pathak gründete Stapleton Nurse with Wound und machte erste Aufnahmen, die sehr spontan entstanden. So produzierten Nurse with Wound das erste Album Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella, das in einer Auflage von 500 Stück erschien.[1]

Im Laufe der Jahre wurde Nurse with Wound zu einem Soloprojekt von Stapleton, der mit wechselnden Musikern (Colin Potter, Andrew Liles u. a.) oder allein weitere Alben produzierte. Dabei entstanden auch Kooperationen mit anderen Bands (Coil, Cyclobe, Foetus, Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa, Larsen (Band), Legendary Pink Dots, Lemon Kittens, Organum, Sol Invictus, Stereolab, Sunn O))), Volcano The Bear, Whitehouse). Lange Zeit war er auf fast jedem Album von David Tibets Bandprojekt Current 93 vertreten.

Der dunkle Stil früherer Werke, der sich stark an Krautrock, Surrealismus, Dadaismus und Musique concrète orientierte, wandelte sich im Lauf der Zeit zu einem eher minimalistischen Stil. Die Musik ist auch von Noise, Ambient, Free Jazz und Bruitismus beeinflusst, gepaart mit Stapletons Humor – so ist auf dem Album Salt Marie Celeste, einer einstündigen Aufnahme eines sinkenden Schiffs, in den letzten Minuten überraschend eine Fahrradklingel zu hören.

Das Layout seiner Alben gestaltet Stapleton selbst, der sich unter dem Pseudonym Babs Santini auch als darstellender Künstler betätigt. Chance Meeting ... wurde 1998 in die Liste The Wire’s “100 Records That Set the World on Fire (While No One Was Listening)” des gleichnamigen Musikmagazins aufgenommen.

Stapleton lebt mit seiner Frau und gelegentlichen Co-Musikerin Diana Rogerson in County Clare, Irland.
