The collaborations with Graham Bowers are possibly Stapleton's strongest work since the early 90s, they get better and better with each release.

What Else we can say about Steven Works, for sure listening to his music he has become to reality the worst nightmares of our dreams, imaginary dreams, morbid thoughts mixed with allucinating trips to unknown pleasures of depravation, yells, masoquism,
rapes,drugs.A fully trip of surrealism painted in music, But The question is What Music?? Is this perhaps a decent or necessary escape from the hole where we are??

A difficult concept,a well thinking memory to understang this, a clearly idea of surrealism,jokes,cartoon enviroments,lunatic asylums victims to give us more insanity than we have in the hole where we live.

This is necessary a fully sick and perverted thoughts coverted in music, a marvelous journey to the unconscious brains
that make us think if we are inside of a big horror movie screen running toward the emptiness.
Steven music quite magnificent but really hard to understand even though the excellency comes from Hell!!!

If Salvador Dali or Hans Bellmer, to name a few, wanted to achieve a surrealist sound painting, be certain they would kill for the talents of one and only Steven Stapleton.

Nurse With Wound's, err, 'music' works on equal terms in a strange cartoon-ish environment (where you'll very possibly find Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse on serious cocaine hook) or in an abstract bordello where fat women and ham win anorexic beauty contests. Of course, everything is covered in additional blood, milk, religion and honey - black and grey always included.

Albums' title-chosen phrases and cover art alone are worth possession of Nurse With Wound's material, but it's their incredibly absurd music that scores additionally to any listener. Stapleton's fascinations with surreal and esoteric provide a funny morbid canvas - it will either frustrate or fascinate. But there is one element that holds both parties in its grip; astonishing dark humour, hard to ignore, sometimes even harder to get.

Effective though, after giving it all, what we'd like to call - a 'proper listen'... or a proper laugh.
