sustain the nurse with wound list: basic scaffolds

the nurse with wound list is an itemization of about 300 artists and bands that steve stapleton in 1979 claims to have influenced the music of nurse with wound. most citations are obvious, some remain obscure. this here weblog and some of my other parameterisations are nolens volens referring to that list at some point, so for your and my pleasure here is the complete list with some passing comments and corrections. by the time being 30 years have passed and most of the music of most of the listed bands and artists can be found by asking your preferred vendor or within the wonderful world of file sharing weblogs. but some songs remain unheard and some nuggets will be unearthed right here for the first time. this post will be updated whenever new content is found or created.

the list:

It would be most interesting to discuss what is missing on this list -- no Harry Bertoia, no Harry Partch, no Henry Wolff & Nancy Jennings, etc. And why does someone have to make such a list, of all things? I have the feeling the list's perimeter is far too narrow and not that open minded as a 'free music' fan should be. A lot of young people are considering this list as a holly Bible nowadays, whereas it strikes me as in need for some fresh air. Don't you think so?
