The Blind Wink Q&A. More Tenement albums.

A Nod's As Good As a Wink. to a Blind Horse was the third album by British rock group Faces, and their second album of 1971. Bolstered somewhat by lead singer Rod Stewart's recent solo success with "Maggie May", it was their most successful album worldwide, peaking at No. 6 in the US, and reaching No. 2 in the UK. It also contains their biggest US hit, the swaggering "Stay with Me" (No. 6 in the UK, No. 17 in the US), and the album itself would be certified gold by the RIAA in 1972.

Below, stream The Blind Wink and read the group’s reflection on its creative genesis, the primacy of full-length formats, and Tenement’s spiritual condition in 2011. How has your view of this record changed since its release in 2011? Jesse Ponkamo: I think it’s sort of an interesting release in that it was produced in a fit of desperation on one level, most certainly destined to never be properly released. The double album SHOULD be the equivilent of walking up to that window, opening that mother up and sticking your head inside! It should give you the time and resources to discover what the artist is really about. And when I say really about, I mean every facet of their musical on or professionalism be damned. Care to contrast Predatory Headlights to The Blind Wink specifically? AP: Almost complete opposites.

The Blind Wink is an album by Appleton, Wisconsin-based rock group Tenement. It was properly released in December 2011 by Chicago hardcore punk label Cowabunga Records, following a cassette that the band released themselves for a West Coast tour in January 2011  . While it might not have been as essential if the impact of Napalm Dream was still in the air, as a continuation of that record, it feels just as important. In a perfect world, Tenement would release an LP every year, and the awe-struck astonishment of this band’s creative capability would last forever. On this outing they may stray further from the Midwest punk comfort zone. But who doesn’t like to get a little adventurous?
