Something incredible appeared on the internet yesterday: Andrew Liles of Nurse With Wound has marked the 30th anniversary of Sisters Of Mercy classic 'This Corrosion' by creating a 30 minute extended edit of the track, which you can listen to via Mixcloud above.

Writing about the track, Liles said: "Hey now, hey now now... My lifelong obsession with The Sisters of Mercy continues, often to the point of exasperation for those around me. I've got nothing to say I ain't said before.. but I will probably say it all again. 'This Corrosion' will be 30 years old on 18th (or the 20th according to certain sources) September 2017. Thus, I continue my adhoc series of massive extensions of classic tracks. Make of it what you will."
