Sleevage Sunday! #8

As promised, another treasure from the bizarre world of Rudimentary Peni and the obsessive pen of vocalist/guitarist Nick Blinko.


This is one of two  7″ E.P.’s they released in the early 1980’s, this one with an astonishing 11 tracks!


With this album came a double sided 6 panel fold out poster – opened size 60 x 40″

For those of you who are not familiar with this scale I have put it into a scale most people will understand!

cassetteSleevage Sunday is where I share selections from my old but recently rediscovered vinyl collection. Music has always been an important part of my life, but so was the packaging. In my formative years I would carefully study every inch of the cover, read every sleevenote, credit and publishing blurb so that the visual qualities of these records became intrinsically linked with the music, so that even now when I hear an old song I also get the imagery too! Alas, much of this will fall upon younger heads whose only visual link with their music is the tiny thumbnail on their iPod…

I am not judging any of these covers – some are great, some are really bad, and others just are. These are simply the images of my youth.

  1. It’s great to see all this old stuff again Mr Lestaret. Once again, the fold out is another piece of Blinko genius.
