Rudimentary Peni - Black Side Live

BEST. BAND. EVER. Well one of them anyway :)

Rudimentary Peni emerged from the British anarcho-punk scene in the early eighties as one of the most novel and recognizable acts of the era. Lead singer/guitarist Nick Blinko is notorious for his witty macabre lyrics and dark pen-and-ink artwork, prominently featured on all of Rudimentary Peni's albums. Blinko is also rumored to have written the band's Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric album whilst resident in a psychiatric hospital. Bassist Grant Matthews has also written a number of songs for the band, though his lyrics primarily focus on sociopolitical themes.

In Maximum RocknRoll, issue #237 (February 2003), Matthews explains how he came up with the name of the band: "When I was at school studying biology, we were told that in the fetal stage the clitoris is a rudimentary penis." (text taken from Wikipedia)

This download is a live 7" bootleg from probably 81 or 82. All the tracks are 320kbps but it is a live show so don't expect studio quality.

Heres the tracklisting...
01) Cosmetic Plague
02) Blind Dogs
03) Dead Living
04) B-Ward
05) Zero Again
06) Inside
07) Media Person
08) Sacrifice
09) Only Human
10) Teenage Time Killer
11) The Gardener
