Got my hands on another Penny Penny tape. This shit is pretty much game over as far as South African dance-pop from the ’90s goes.

Awesome Tapes from Africa DJ set tomorrow (2/17) at the Akron/Family (and Delicate Steve) show at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg.

    great – more from penny penny! can’t stop listening to this stuff
    He seems to be so famous in South Africa but it’s hard to find information about him. He had some kind of comeback album 2009 (“The King vs. the General” – with him being the King) I’d really like to find this somewhere…

    Penny Penny is back in the studio, he is my home boy, he is my ward councillor and he is my future president. his album is expected to be out very soon.

  13. that’s great news! can you connect me with him? i would lie to ask about reissuing his records outside SA.

    Thank you, Brian, for making this available! Great 1990s sound indeed.

    Does anybody have any info on Penny Penny more generally? Was he (ever) politically engaged with his music? I heard about a song he made called “Apartheid”. Does anybody know when it was released? And what became of Penny Penny?
    Thanks everyone!

  15. can’t speak about his political engagement but i can say he has since become a regional politician for the ANC in his home area, so he must have some interest!

  18. This the second Penny Penny LP saw a limited release on vinyl in Zimbabwe, by the time it came out South Africa had stopped pressing records, only the Zimbabwe plant was still operating in the region. Got my copy! PS I have a tape of Shaka Bundu Girls somewhere and also had one from Joe Shirimani the producer (will have to dig to see if it is still there).
