Sleeve Notes
Relating to Nurse WIth Wound

Taken from the album 'Shipwreck Radio Volume One' (ICR / United Dairies).
Back in the 15 Century, sailing merchant Pietro Querini shipwrecked his fleet on the Lofoten Islands, north of the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway, and spent a winter surviving the harsh surroundings. A few hundred years later , Steven Stapleton and Colin Potter were shipped to the same place with a bunch of recording equipment. The project came about when we were given the opportunity to think up a sonic project for the Lofoten International Art festival. We decided to invite NWW to the islands bringing no instruments, they were dumped in an apartment in the town of Svolver, and told to get out and make whatever they wanted, sonically, while exploring the islands. Three times a week, their work in progress had to be aired on the local radio station, Lofotenradioen. Lofoten never darkens in summer. The air was saturated with the background reek of drying cod, and the headless fish could be seen everywhere, dangling from huge wooden drying racks all over the island. Explorative walks around the streets of scattered towns revealed strange homemade garden trolls; knotty carved guardians of domesticity that reverberate with a deep and rich pagan history. Every sound you hear is sourced from environments and objects in Lofoten: buildings, ships, harbour-side tackle, local characters encountered during the period of abandonment on the island, marching bands and crowds at the local music festival 'Codstock'. Even the dessicated cod was used as flaky percussion. Shipwreck Radio is a CD documenting some of the material Steven and Colin came up with, and here is a taster. Best enjoyed with woolly socks and a snack of cod jerky. (Anne Hilde Neset and Rob Young)
