Trzeci album studyjny duetu Steven Stapelton i Graham Bowers.
The third studio album release from Nurse With Wound and Graham Bowers. ExcitoToxicity … an excess of most things, both mentally and physically, although exciting and pleasurable, can easily accelerate and rapidly become toxic … on a cellular level, deadly. We have thrown caution to the wind and gone overboard on the quality of the 8 Panel DigiPak artwork design and packaging for this release … why? … Graham liked all Steven's proposed paintings for the album … so Steven decided we should feature them all … on a heavy board in full gloss, on a matte background.
Excitotoxicity is an unwanted process where neurons become over-activated from a surplus of the neurotransmitter glutamate, resulting in cell death and, ultimately, tissue damage and degeneration. Essentially, neurons receive too much stimulation causing the usually well-balanced internal physiology of each cell to become off-kilter and produce excessive levels of harmful molecules that break the neuron down from the inside-out. It is believed to be an underlying part of a number of serious neurological diseases including motor neuron disease, a disease that Graham Bowers has become a victim of. This album is partly a musical diary, an artistic interpretation of neurophysiological processes and a very human response to an unfathomable loss of control.
Released in an 8 panel Digipak with clear tray.
