If you double "Rudimentary Peni", you get "Rudimentary Penis". Jesus. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Nick Blinko from Peni beat out Pushead for the "80's Punk Artist" heavyweight belt a little while ago, and Peni's (note correct punctuation) Cacophony was one of the first albums ever featured on I.C. They are a perennial favorite around here. Either you have these albums or you are a teenager. Or a soccer mom. Or both.

Fuck off. Peni kills.

I'm wary of saying that any band is "my favorite band", but these guys have always meant a lot to me. The depression and outsider anxiety on "Death Church" fit perfectly into the mosaic of confusion and angst I felt in my teen years (okay, I'm still confused and angry, just in an older, wiser way). Parents suck, religions suck, government is fucked - all of it gets said here, without resorting to "I don't care" , "Fuck you" and oh, poor me cliche's.
Their last one, "Archaic" is actually very good, but all of its depth is hidden beneath a wall of amateur sounding riffing. Listen on headphones, or at max volume, and you can unlock the intricacies that make it a Peni record.
