Rudimentary Peni - "Catastrophe" (Bootleg - Rotten 3) 1985?



The sporadic releases of Rudi P after 1983 created a need for product which was generously fulfilled by this live bootleg from two pre-Death Church performances in 1982.
There were 5 years between the first and second albums; mainly due to Nick Blinko's psychological condition,and the various anti-schizophrenia drugs he had to endure, which halted the creative process in its tracks.
One must say the boys are on fine form here, blasting out their one minute symphonies to a constantly chit-chatting audience.
The sound quality is rather good, and must have been recorded from the soundboard, with Blinko's screaming being especially clear.
A fine document of a fine group.

do i always sound so cuntish as that? up my own ass like a desperate buck faced cam girl saving up for her dental brackets? oi lordy. i would hate myself if i wasn't me honestly. i understand why i have no friends. it's too much work to change though. can't say i have really tried. i have made peace with the fact that i will die alone. you can have all my peni records Jonny if i go first. this serves as my digital will here. you are legally bound to pay the shipping costs though bucko. maybe i can sneak some ashes in there too for you. you hip to smoke me like Kieth did his dad? i would really appreciate that man. even if you just say you will and flush me instead i'll die with the happy face on somewhat. if i have the chance to haunt i'll come live with you in france. i can help you make those metal rats out of scrap pieces and protect your shit when you're not home. do you go out much Jonny? i do value my alone time that's why i ask. anyways just trying to be proactive today and get some things done. i'll scratch this off the list then. tootles.

Cuntishness is purely a matter of perssonal opinion.
I don't smoke for aesthetic reasons, so you will have to be flushed.
Also I don't pay for anything i.m legally bound to.
but, by all means you can haunt me, just have the grace to fuck off whenever i'm having sex,masturbating, taking a crap, or anything that involves nudity.
I do go out,but mostly for work, and a obligation i feel for certain social events to keep certain persons happy....basically i'm a people pleaser who hates people.
