Album by the legendary punk poet, writer, painter, multi-instrumentalist and co-founder of seminal anarchist outfit Crass. A fiction constructed by Penny, out of interest as to the possible outcome, places the French poet Arthur Rimbaud (who died in 1891) at the historic and tragic battle of Verdun in 1916. The idea being that Penny found something to be explored in the possibilities of the young vagabond and his perception of such drastic events. Dark and vivid jazz-infused ambience is punctured by Penny's spoken word lyricism painting pictures of the chaotic experience of World War 1. Maniacally delivered readings are ruthless in their detailed realism, not only well researched but so convincingly told it's easy to forget it's a narrative. Exceptionally realised, brutal at times and incredibly poignant in others, 'Arthur Rimbaud In Verdun' is unlike anything else in subject or sound.
