The Newt Hounds

A special experimental Dada project, dedicated to Nurse With Wound (the name was taken from a Nurse With Wound T-shirt). It is also a surreal musical twist on the art of B. Kliban, a strong influence in the Diana Rogerson era of Nurse With Wound, her famous words "Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head" being the title of a brilliant Kliban book. So, "The Poignant Device" can be seen as the spiritual son/cousin (once removed) heir to "Sylvie & Babs" and "Cooloorta Moon" era Nurse With Wound, whilst it is also a pioneering explorative album in its own right. It features guest appearances by two members of Volcano The Bear and Maureen Anderson of Shapeshifter. The inevitable sequel "Loose Nuts" is a unique album of 99 tracks (playable in any order) taking the idea of NWW's "A Sucked Orange" in a new direction.
