Chaos magick / punk crossover
Nick Blinko of Rudimentary Peni contributor to Chaos International!
A few months ago, Tinsel sent me a copy of Nick Blinko's book The Primal Screamer first published in 1995, now on its third edition. It has a short section on the Wapping Autonomy Anarchy Centre which have scanned in. Nick's group Rudimentari Peni played there several times - pushing the boundaries of 'punk' to the edge and beyond.
This morning I went to scan in the cover Chaos International 3 (1987) and thought it looked familiar. It was drawn by 'Nicholas Blinko', who also contributed art work to CI 4 and maybe more- haven't
So there in black n white is an independent ( i.e. nothing to do with me) link from the anarcho-goth-punk scene of 80/84 with chaos magick.
Chaos magick, or results magic as it was first called, is strongly linked wth Leeds where it emerged in 1978/9 - contemporary with the Gang of Four. However I doubt if there was any actual connection at that time.
Here are some scans to illustrate the overlap.
