** Note: This was original released in September but was discovered to have a pressing error: two B-sides. The black vinyl was withdrawn and all copies were destroyed, bar the 50 or so that had already shipped to our mail order customers. Those customers received a white vinyl replacement as soon as it was available.
Formed in 1980, Rudimentary Peni were initially inspired by bands such as The Damned, Slaughter and the Dogs, and Discharge. The release of their first EP in 1981 coincided with their first gig, with Flux of Pink Indians in London. Despite many rumours, no member of the band has ever died, (yet!) and the line up has remained constant on all the recorded releases.
Some tracks are written by Grant and some by Nick whilst others are co-written by both members.
Archaic deals more with personal experience than the majority of the bands previous releases. The twelve songs on the album cover a variety of, shall we say, darker topics including mortality, despair, cremation, and the closing of the British national health service. The brevity of the lyrics (often a single line) is matched by the pummeling harshness of the guitar riffs, which hammer away as if pouring salt into an open wound.
