This stands up there alongside those Don Van Vliet-less field recordings of the Trout Mask Replica songs that emerged at the arse end of the nineties.Then we could all play at being Captain Beefheart,and even add some soprano sax or Blues Harp if you felt like it. I always wanted to be The Mascara Snake personally,but having no Bass Clarinet to speak of, I had to make do with doing my impression of Don doing an impression of Howlin' Wolf.
But, now we can be Nick Blinko for half an hour and scream along, word perfect with the Blinko-less backing tracks for Death Church, great for a short car journey.......sing-a-long-a-Peni?
You could even play along with the guitar parts if you are sad enough? But absolutely NOT, I may add, whilst driving!!! You could end up more than a 1/4 dead with that particular brand of Punk idiocy!
Rudi-P are becoming as mythological as the Magic Band and Leader as each day passes. These tunes are certainly more Fast and Bulbous than most things that emerged from the Anarcho-Punk scene;and to think I once thought that the Peni were just another throw away UK82 anarcho-hardcore band.Judging Death Church by its great cover,I purchased and discovered something rather unique and wonderful.....and Now, I can sing-a-long-a-Blinko in my worship at the Death Church altar!?
