100 words on Soliloquy for Lilith

I once claimed Nurse with Wound was the perfect band in that it was essentially one person, sitting in a studio shack out in Ireland or wherever, sometimes others, sometimes not - issuing out endless recordings, as if the "band" was a Surrealist precipitate for the artist living his life, pursuing his interests. I was in a very Rauschenberg place with art then; not so much now – I think great art is experience shaped purposely by the will, the artist is not a passive sieve but a sculptor. In that way, Nurse with Wound is still kind of a perfect band.
