Stereolab and Nurse w/ Wound - Simple Headphone Mind

Artist: Stereolab and Nurse With Wound
Album: Simple Headphone Mind
Label: Duophonic (uk)
Year: 1997
Genre: Post-rock / psych / kraut-rock

01 - Simple Headphone Mind
02 - Trippin' With The Birds

Simple Headphone Mind is the second collaboration between Stereolab and Nurse With Wound. As with their first release, Crumb Duck, Stereolab recorded the basic track and then handed it over to Steven Stapleton to do with as he pleased. Unlike with Crumb Duck, listeners can hear the original Stereolab recording, as it was issued under the title The Long Hair Of Death on a split single with Yo La Tengo; this version was also featured on Stereolab's Aluminum Tunes compilation album.

Again, as with Crumb Duck, the release was a limited edition. There were between 800 and 1000 compact discs (the NWW and Stereolab websites disagree on numbers) and 4000 vinyl records, around 1000 of which were on yellow vinyl. All copies came in a sealed metallic sleeve. via wikipedia
