A Sucked Orange is an album by Nurse With Wound, consisting of 29 mostly brief, unused pieces, elements or alternate versions of tracks from Nurse With Wound's recording career up to 1988. Steven Stapleton compiled the album prior to moving to Ireland; he was unable to take his tape archive with him and decided to salvage the fragments that make up this album before destroying them.[1]

Some of the track titles are particularly literal, with titles such as "A Little Missing Part Of Homotopy to Marie" or "Pleasant Banjo Intro With Irritating Squeak". There is some crossover between the track listings of A Sucked Orange and the cassette-only release "Scrag", issued in 1987.[2]

The album was originally released on compact disc and vinyl in 1990, with the CD being re-pressed in 1995.[3] A 2CD reissue pairing the album with "Scrag" was issued on the Dirter Promotions label in 2013.
