Rudimentary Peni – “Wilfred Owen” 7″
Rudimentary Peni must be in the all-time top five bands for anyone and everyone who got into punk rock at any point in time from ’79 onwards. And so it goes, the first time on vinyl for a track that was previously only available as a one track CD single which accompanied a book by Nick Blinko from 2009 called The Haunted Head. A minimal song, with Blinko reciting the words of Wilfred Edward Salter Owen (1893-1918) about the fortunes of five British ‘Tommies’ during the first World War. Worth it alone just for the artwork of the sleeve. Lovely print quality, too.
