Christ's Reality Asylum – A Catharsis by Penny Rimbaud

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.
