Stuart features the 1978 debut record from Steve Stapleton's experimental improvisation, kraut-rock and avant-garde inspired group Nurse With Wound.

Recorded in a single six hour studio session, Steve gathered friends John Fothergill and Heeman Pathak and all the instruments they could find and set the tapes running. Guided by a love for experimental music and little knowledge of their instruments the result is a savvy interpretation of countless hours spent analysing the works of artists like Luc Ferrari, Hugh Hopper and Kraftwerk.

In fact their influences have been well documented, the sleeve notes for the album contained a list of 291 musicians and bands who influenced the record. It has since become a bible for fans of psychedelic, progressive, avant-garde and revolutionary music. On Friday's Freakier Zone, Stuart spends an hour exploring the Nurse With Wound List with the help of Steve Stapleton himself.

6MHawkwind's Warrior On The Edge Of Time20120527

Freakmaster General Maconie presents 2 hours of not-normal music for your delight and discovery. Each week Stuart features a classic album from the world of outsider music, this week as 6 Music celebrates the written word during the month of May it's Hawkwind's fifth studio album Warrior On The Edge Of Time.

The album features spoken word parts from science-fiction writer Michael Moorcock based around his character Eternal Champion, a hero chosen by fate to fight for cosmic balance in the multiverse. Released in 1974 when Hawkwind had built a solid base of space-rock fans, bridging the gap between punk and hippie cultures, the album was considered their most accomplished to date.
