Official reissue. New remastering vinyl of the 1979 LP by Colin Potter + “silver edition” Gatefold cover + complete NWW list on Gatefold inner.
Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella is the debut album by British experimental unusual and absurd music group Nurse With Wound, released on their own United Dairies label in 1979. An unusual record which blends noise and jamming.
The album’s equally unusual title is a quote from the surreal, poetic novel Les Chants de Maldoror by Uruguayan-born French author Isidore-Lucien Ducasse, written under the pseudonym Comte de Lautréamont.It has been included in the “100 Records That Set the World on Fire (While No One Was Listening)” by TheWire in 1998, and is one of the records that have had a lasting impact on avant-garde, experimental and psychedelic music.It was on this record that the famous “NWW list” appeared for the first time, featuring dozens of names of musicians and groups who had influenced Nurse With Wound – a list that now serves as a treasure map for many collectors of the genre and fans of outsider music. It’s been replicated here in the innersleeve of the gatefold.
