Tenement ‎– The Blind Wink - LP colour vinyl.

Image of Tenement ‎– The Blind Wink - LP colour vinyl.


Lond deleted LP on the defunct Cowabunga record label - this is the mustard yellow vinyl limited to 20 copies only.
Punk band with influences from many genres based in Wisconsin.
Their first album Napalm Dream was heavy on the high octane catchy punk, and definitely great but The Blink Wink is where the band found their confidence and compiled a very distinct and mixed sounding album’s worth of material. From the Replacements, the Decendents, and the Lemonheads, the influences are obvious and the delivery spot on. I am not sure how a band that is so deeply rooted in hardcore punk ends up creating such a diverse and strong album so early in their ‘career’ but Tenement have managed to comfortably move beyond the confines of the punk song and keep us captivated. “This record is a beautiful oddity.” Razorcake Magazine
