Here's your christmas list...

I get a lot of calls from people wanting to know where I find all this crazy shit. Well, I've gotten about 3 calls regarding that...but...one of the main sources for Obscuro!'s musical selection is a thing called the Nurse With Wound list. Back in the late 70's/early 80's, some dudes decided they wanted to sample a bunch of psychedelic German records and make weird sounds/be creepy. They called themselves Nurse With Wound, and went on to influence everyone from Negativland to Skinny Puppy to Sonic Youth. Personally, I'm not a big fan of their music...but I like their list! Upon releasing their first album, "Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table," they included with the LP a list of obscure 'outsider' musicians who had either influenced them or who they had sampled. Nothing else; just the performers' names.

Now, with the power of the internet, it's relatively easy to dig up a lot of the albums by these groups, and dig I do indeed. Here's the entire list, for reference:


There you have it. Next week (as in, the edition of the program AFTER this week's) I will be featuring nothing but NWW list artists...so if ya know any you want to hear, drop me a line. Also, don't tune in this week if you don't wanna be bummed out, cuz that's pretty much the theme.

Hi,
Mr. Steven Stapleton - "inventor" of NWW - was never allowed to put my name on his fucking "list" - so aren't you, whoever you are.
Please remove my name immediately from this blog. If you don't do so I announce another DMCA complaint to make Google erase your whole blog.
Best regards
Franz de Byl, musician & music teacher, Berlin

Haha, done and done whoever you are. I copied that list from Wikipedia, so you'd better get on their shit too. Wouldn't want anybody hearing your music or anything...
