“Voodoo Girl” – Played on “Banana Lounge Broadcasting” by Dave Graney and on “On The Blower” by Tony Biggs. The song was recorded by Penny’s French band Penelope Inc under the production of Jim Diamond (ex The Dirtbombs, USA).
“Tsunami” – Played by Megahertz spiritual leader Pauly P on “Respect The Rock”. This song was recorded in The Chapel of Rock by Penny Ikinger’s Marbles.
