4 Fine Writin' (For Lil' Fishy) (Nurse with Wound)
Previously released on CD by the Art-Errorist label, this is the vinyl edition of an almost mythical collaboration, joining two of the greatest studio bands in the history of audio recording. Legendary '70s German Krautrock band Faust today includes Werner "Zappi" Diermaier and bassist Jean-Hervé Peron, the only original members, joined by Amaury Cambuzat from the band Ulan Bator. British experimental band Nurse with Wound was formed three decades ago by Steven Stapleton, now joined by Colin Potter. Since expectations are most certainly high for such a joint venture, Disconnected delivers in every way, and of course sounds, as you might expect, like both bands, but also stands on it own, as you might not expect. Faust had an early influence way back on a young NWW - but as the years have passed, NWW have had a profound effect on the German legends. Disconnected opens new worlds of sound with audio collage, incantory drum beats, deconstructed sound samples, mesmerizing feedback loops, and echoing electronics. New trails are forged by seasoned masters. For the first 1000 copies only, this vinyl edition has two sides of previously-unreleased material, one side pure Faust from the Disconnected sessions, the other a NWW track, unique to this set. The double LP is also pressed on clear yellow and clear orange vinyl for this limited edition.
