The words legendary, seminal, and classic get thrown around at will
these days, but Rudimentary Peni’s debut album is all of them. Recorded
over two days at Southern Studios by John Loder and originally released
in 1983 by Crass off-shoot label Corpus Christi, Death Church showed a
band moving away from the urgency of their two early 7”s and into their
own realm. Creating a template that bands have been trying to replicate
ever since, while ticking all the boxes to become a genre-defining
album. Iconic artwork, a unique sound and their own lyrical universe.
All merging seamlessly. Sonically the album is full of Nick Blinko’s
extraordinary vocals and equally remarkable guitar, Grant Matthews’ big
meandering driving basslines and Jon Greville's tight and relentless
drum work which together made something intricate and hard hitting, with
a sequence that makes the 21 songs on the album flow perfectly.
Visually, the album is every outsider art lover’s wet dream. A six-panel
poster sleeve with every inch covered in Nick Blinko’s claustrophobic
black and white line drawings, while lyrically the songs deal with
madness, religion, death, and questioning humankind from a dark poetic
place rarely found in any art form.
