this morning we continue our journey into the weird wide world of Steven Stapleton’s nurse with wound releases from this year.  This time the LP records from may and June.  Beginning with the more accessible of the two, The Bacteria Magnet released in June on the English label dirter promotions in an edition of 500.  Side one first (both sides produced by Steven Stapleton and Andrew Liles) and cover design by babs santini (Stapleton in collage mode):

side one

Track                           Title                                    Duration

1                Cruisin’ For a Bruisin’ (Bacteria  Bitch mix)                  ~7′ 46″

An extended version of the track on the CD Huffin’ Rag Blues from last show.  With the incredible stereo separation.

The Musty Odour of Pierced Rectums. And Features an incredible Steven Stapleton collage, my cover of the year.  It is on heavy marbled vinyl and comes in a heavy cardboard sleeve. We Will Hear both sides, described as a collection of obsolete primitive variations, and all new and previously unreleased material and of course limited-edition, listen For anne Margaret on television in the backround:

this morning the first half of two parts featuring recent nurse with wound releases.  This week the CDs and next program the LP record releases.  We started with the first track, Willie The Weeper from the angular surreal pop CD HUFFIN’ RAG BLUES which visits the kitschy world of `50s exotica and lounge music.  It was released in June on the American label United Jnanal. This Is the Entry this morning into the strange dark surreal world of Stephen Stapleton. It features Stephen Stapleton of course and Andrew Lile along with a cast including Mat Waldron, Colin Potter (his usual collaborator) and his wife Diana Rogerson. The cover design is by that great collageist Babs Santini ,the assumed name for Stephen Stapleton  as visual artist..  Now two more tracks from HUFFIN’ RAG BLUES:

Track, Title, Duration

1, Willie The Weeper,0′ 57″

8, Juice Head crazy Lady,3′ 56″

10, Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’,6′ 14″

I suggest turning the volume up and listening particularly for the incredible stereophonic separation on the second track.

Now the special double CD and hardback book of photos of Stapleton’s 100 hand-painted records recently on show in Galway in Ireland and Portland, Oregon .  Limited-edition of 1500. called Images/zero MIX. CD one is called zero mix and all music is by Colin Potter and Stephen Stapleton.  It was released on the American beta-lactam ring records in May. Here is zero mix [II ] and zero mix [III ] .

2, zero mix [II ],9’48

3, zero mix [III ],13’35”
now CD 2

1,Requiem For Lady Day,11’28”
2,Ocean( For “Saucie” Redpath),first 10’
