At the beginning of this Rudimentary Peni song, aptly titled “Black President” it sounds like Nick Blinko is saying Obama, but in reality is actually screaming “peanut farmer” in his English accent. Just barely over a minute long, it was released on their 1981 self titled EP.

I am also including my favorite Rudimentary Peni song, “Only Human” due to the briliance and inanity of Blinko’s lyrics:

“Hey youuu! Yeah youuuuu!
You’re the only human everyone’s an alien
Save youuuuuuuu, save youuuuuuuuuu
We’re malevolent malignant tumours sucking on your body

Preying on your mind never mind, never mind
Preying on your mind never mind, never minnnnnnd!!!!
Dissecting your soul, spirit being or whatever
Put your brain [unintelligible]
We’ve your whole life videoed
Your womb, sub-life, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, old aggggggggge… “

It’s even better if you listen to the “Bile Ball” and “Farce” right after it on the Farce EP released on Crass Records.
A nice crusty kid from Finland sent me the text file of The Primal Screamer, Blinko’s fictionalized semi-autobiography which is now out of print and very hard to find. I will gladly pass this on to anyone who asks for it.

You can see some of Nick Blinko’s primarily macabre art here.

I am so excited about today, I didn’t think I would get so emotional. The end is in less than 7 hours!!!!!!!

    I did not send you the text file?

    I left you those lyrics as a myspace comment many moons ago. Do you remember that?

    This has me convinced that Nick Blinko is clairvoyant.

    I would lend you the book if it were in the states.

  2. Sybil Says:

    haha no it was not you!

    yes, yes I remember that.

    does this mean that YOU’RE in the states? you should just GIVE me the book. :D

    but srsly how crazy is it that the insert with that ep vaguely looks like O.

    […] am including the Rudimentary Peni track that inspired the name. I posted some more Rudimentary Peni here in January. There is also more reasoning behind the name but it’s 5am and I really need to […]
