It seems to be confirmed from Southern that Rudimentary Peni will release a new CD titled "No More Pain" in early 2008.

Below is a screenshot of their catalog place holder for it. Apparently, Nick Blinko is busy working on the artwork but there are at least a couple of "listening copies," sans artwork, already out there....

This online catalog placeholder is here.

8/20/07 01:54 am - syndicalist - Cultpunk interview w/ Rudi Peni Nick linko's band S-Haters

If you are a big Rudimentary Peni fanatic like me you probably know that prior to forming Rudi Peni, singer/author/artist Nick Blinko was in The Magits.

But if you are also like me, you did NOT know that he was also in the dark punk band S-HATERS, a band whose releases appeared on Rudi Peni's OUTER HIMALAYAN Records.

I was lucky enough to find the guitarist of the S-Haters, Kevin O'Brien, and interview him about that band, Blinko, UK anarcho-punk, politics, and other stuff!



Excerpt below:

Q: What were the musical influences of the S-HATERS? It seems you all had a dark sound. Just from listening, my guesses are Joy Division and UK Decay type stuff.

Kevin O'Brien/S-Haters: Well, your description is very flattering, thank
you. We began before Joy Division, although when we saw them I practically fell to my knees in awe. We were so impressed by them that we couldn’t fail to absorb some of what they were doing. Looking back now, they were so far ahead of the game, but the influence of Rob Gretton (manager), Tony Wilson (Factory Records), and Martin Hannett (producer) was massive, as was the artwork of Peter Saville.


Nick Blinko was indeed a member of the S-Haters. Nick was always just such great company. He was quiet but extremely witty and funny. I also remember he had great hair and a fantastic old military jacket that I thought looked outrageously good on him, which he wore to a gig we played at a place called the Hemel Arts Centre in Hemel Hempstead, about 5 - 10 miles from Watford.

We had no cars, van, nothing, and took our instruments on the bus. (We had been promised backline and a drumkit). Nick brought a Syndrum, which had two basic sounds - the disco sound which is prominent on Joy Division’s ‘She’s Lost Control’ and also a fantastic crashing sound that is all over Joy Division’s first album, like a metal sheet being bashed with a big hammer. Nick really put that Syndrum through its paces that night, and we got the bus back to Watford very happy, still in time to get a drink at the pub!

I noticed the last post concerned the price of The Primal Screamer, so I thought I'd share an online text I came across [and quite by accident!].
It's a Myspace page, and the only thing that irks me about it is that there are pretty frequent grammatical errors that I had to correct as I read it. [Shrugs]
