Blinko, Greville, and Matthews subsequently formed Rudimentary Peni. Matthews explained how he came up with the name of the band: “When I was at school studying biology, we were told that in the fetal stage the clitoris is a rudimentary penis”. They recorded their first EP, an eponymous 12-song 7″, in 1981 at Street Level Studios in London and released it on Outer Himalayan. It was fast, loud, and often described as “demented” due to the sound, as well as Blinko’s lyrics and artwork, which adorned the cover and inner sleeves.

In 1987, the band’s first two EPs were collected by Corpus Christi Records as The EPs of RP. Rudimentary Peni stopped performing in the mid-1980s after bassist Matthews was diagnosed with cancer.
