Let p be a prime and let G be a finite p-group. In a recent paper (Woodcock, J Pure Appl Algebra 210: 193-199, 2007) we introduced a commutative graded Z-algebra R-G. This classifies, for each commutative ring R with identity element, the G-invariant commutative R-algebra multiplications on the group algebra R[G] which are cocycles (in fact coboundaries) with respect to the standard "direct sum" multiplication and have the same identity element. We show here that, up to inseparable isogeny, the "graded-commutative" mod p cohomology ring H*(G, F-p) of G has the same spectrum as the ring of invariants of R-G mod p (R-G circle times(Z) F-p)(G) where the action of G is induced by conjugation.
