Penny Rimbaud
Christ's Reality Asylum – A Catharsis

Penny Rimbaud of punk band Crass wrote and published Christ’s Reality Asylum in 1977. A portion of it was used on the band’s debut album The Feeding Of The Five Thousand under the title Reality Asylum. Its fair to say it got them in a bit of trouble with the cops with charges of Criminal Blasphemy being levelled at them. The full spoken word piece was recorded by Penny Rimbaud in 1991 with backing voices and noise added over time. In 2019, Eve Libertine added her voice to the recording. This is very much the seed of Crass, even the band’s famous logo was adopted from the cover of the original published manuscript.

Crass
Stations Of The Crass

Stations Of The Crass was the second album by anarchist punk band Crass. It was originally released in 1979. It features three sides of studio recordings and one side which was recorded live in an Islington pub (I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn was there?). The album’s title is not only a pun on Stations Of The Cross, but also the name of their campaign to daub the London underground in graffiti. On Crass Records.

War & Peace

Back in 2012 the Crass mastermind Penny Rimbaud went into the studio to record a couple of covers. Working with cellist Kate Shortt and bass player Jennifer Maidman, and with ex-Buzzcocks fellow Tony Barber at the mixing desk, Rimbaud took on Bob Dylan’s ‘Masters Of War’ and George Harrison’s ‘Isn’t It A Pity’. He spits furious peace atop sawing strings for the Dylan original while the Harrison take is more tranquil and mournful - it’s not dissimilar to late-period Nick Cave actually. After being stowed away for several years the tracks now make it to a 7” release entitled War & Peace. Out through One Little Indian.

Yes Sir, The Truth Of Revolution

During the political unrest of the Faulklands conflict, 1982's 'Yes sir, I will' by Crass was as hard-hitting as they come. Writer Penny Rimbaud re-imaged the piece for Blackpool's Rebellion Festival thirty years later, taking the original sentiment and applying it to the current political climate. The recording features some of the leading names in London's jazz scene. Available on CD.
