La Mandragore (book + CD)

Jean Lorrain, Nurse With Wound - La Mandragore (book + CD)
The most accomplished tale of Jean Lorrain (1855-1906), decadent dandy, ardent erotomaniac and corrosive pen, accompanied by a new piece by Nurse With Wound.
Jean Lorrain (Paul Alexandre Martin Duval, 1855-1906) was a French writer, parnassian poet and art critic, a flamboyant and scandalous figure of the Belle Époque and of "decadent" literature.
A British music project formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill and Heman Pathak, Nurse With Wound (now Stapleton's variable geometry project) is an essential figure of English experimental and industrial music since the early 80's. With more than 150 releases, alone or with other musicians, Stapleton has swept widely different musical styles, from industrial music to mambo, through electronics, improvisation, electroacoustics, with a lot of humor.
