Penny Ikinger - Songs From The Deep EP

Posting this because more people need to hear Penny armed with a dirty fuzz guitar. Her album from last year ('Tokyo') is a ripper and well worth chasing down. In the meantime, you'll just have to settle for this EP.

Apart from her solo career, she was in The Wet Taxis and Salmon and has occasionally teamed up with Deniz Tek, Ron Peno, Charlie Owen, Louis Tillett, Mark Ferrie, Dave Graney, Clare Moore and The Sacred Cowboys. Wowsers.

Three LP's prior to 'Tokyo' : 'Electra' and 'Penelope'. Also, another EP 'Fragile'. There is a doco out there which you will find on YouTube ('Electra: The Music of Penny Ikinger'). Chrissie Amphlett is the interviewer. Made in 2006.

2008 collection from a Perth band led by Kim Williams. The million dollar question is - who is that on the cover?

Tune Bureau - Laminex

Who the heck are these guys?? They hail from Perth and released this gem in 1997. Nothing about them on the internet (not even Discogs) - this may have something to do with them remaining 'undiscovered'.

It be good. Very good. 'Over The Top' and 'Budget Pop' (as proclaimed on the cover) may be apt descriptions.
