Info about the event:
Fantastic Mess Records indulge their romanticism with vinyl singles once again with the release of this split 7” double A side featuring Penny Ikinger and Baby8, to be launched at The Old Bar, Fitzroy, Melbourne on Sunday 8th December 2019.
Sonic chanteuse, guitar ace and primal mistress of pop, Penny Ikinger covers her favourite Oz rock song of all time – Divinyls classic ‘Boys in Town’ for this vinyl release. She recently launched her new video clip of ‘Boys in Town’ at ‘A Celebration for Chrissy’, an event to mark the occasion of Chrissy Amphlett’s 60th birthday and to honour her legacy.
Penny’s friendship with Chrissy spanned decades and their mutual affection for one another is evident when Chrissy interviews Penny in the rockumentary ‘Electra: The Music of Penny Ikinger’ (Burlesque Productions).
““One that was born with a star on the forehead is Penny Ikinger, a kind of grungy answer to PJ Harvey…Devastating from start to finish.”” – Jon Pagola, Mondosonoro (Spain)
Penny Ikinger will be accompanied by the musicians who played on ‘Boys in Town’:- Tim McCormack – bass, Jason McGann – drums, Sam Billinghurst-Walsh – guitar, Julian Held – guitar and backing vocals and Ryan Oliver – keyboards. They will play a selection of Penny’s favourite Oz rock classics and some material from her latest solo album ‘Tokyo’ at this single launch.
First 30 payers receive a free copy of the vinyl single. World class rock n roll released on Fantastic Mess Records!
