Track One, Side A: The Bacteria Bitch Mix of Cruisin’ For A Bruisin’ would be a great track to play if you wanted to assault listeners during the morning or evening drive, (that is if it weren’t for the naughty language) tires screech, sirens wail, chaos abounds in a catastrophic aural onslaught, ok maybe I have gone to far, no wait it is the collective that is NURSE WITH WOUND that has gone too far, leaving skid marks on your eardrums and broken glass in your face.
Track Two, Side A: Total departure from first track. Picture yourself if you will in David Lynch’s world of the film Blue Velvet…a chanteuse is forced to sing for you while a man in black inhales nitrous oxide in the corner…Woman singing with sparse piano and all sorts of ominous atmospherics. CREEPY.
Track one, Side B : More Lynchian undertones with stand up bass, percusssion, effects and dreamy detached female vocals “the night is cold and i am so alone, i would give my soul to call you my own…” Very nice and a bit reminiscent of Julee Cruise and the Wild At Heart soundtrack.
Track Two, Side B: Another departure, noisey industrial, vocal manipulations, whirling, crashing, looping, screams, blurps and beeps, did I say noisey? Yeah, I almost forgot, throw a music box on top, honk at it and smash it with your fist. This nurse will help with your wound, after she inflicts it.
