Musick In Diabola

This song is by Rudimentary Peni and appears on the album Cacophony (1988).

The music you hear -even the voice- especially the voice is constructed entirely from bones breaking, blood flowing, and the like.
A fly in flight supplies us with the note "F", a humble bee "C", and so on.
So it's not really music but it is (fantasy and reality)
The massed ranks of the
Blackstone military band made exactly the right cacophony.
Even now I relish the old time inanities when they're revived on the radio, for they recall the lost illusions and optimisms of their initial ululations -50 year old punks 90 year old teds dead hippies

But some people have decided to call themselves precisely that...

Peni, as I'm sure you've all realised by now, were an ancient hill tribe hailing from what is now
Yorkshire, who defeated the
Roman legions at the notable battle in I think 53BC -what a name to be lumbered with.
O well, it's their decision -what's in a name
Rudimentary, my dear
Peni. I take all the noises you made in the world, eat them -spew them regurgitate them- excrete them - bury them - shoot them off to the stars
Thunderous music hemispherical cosmic temple - executor of extraordinary proficiency 'pon the forte oddest pitch gusting turbulence ye gods I've penned tri-tones. I must be away to confession
And I died singing this song
