Penthouse were the subject of a one-hour radio special on Michael Mulholland's JUNKYARD show on Australia's PBS 106.7FM, 28th August 2014 , archived below:
"This week on Junkyard, we are featuring a band that formed in London in the mid 90's, their sound was described as a mixture of The Jesus Lizard and the Blues Explosion, the lead singer Charlie Fink's raspy vocals, combined with a great angular rhythm section provided a sound that was not coming from your typical English band, they later changed their name to Fifty Tons Of Black Terror, when the Penthouse magazine kicked up, joining us live in the studio will be the original guitarist Jon Free along with Esme MacDonald, the bass player on the final album UNT, we'll be playing tracks from all of their releases as well as discussing the history of the band, should be good, looking forward to it!!"
The sad news is that the band broke up November 2002.
Penthouse were the subject of a rather dubious (and with hindsight, fairly ominous) four-page spread in 'Careless Talk Costs Lives', cover dated August/September 2002
Thanks to everyone who has supported the band during the course of those eight or nine years.
Any news of future projects will hopefully be reported here in due course.
There is a rather bittersweet obituary for Penthouse in France's Positive Rage which stemmed from an interview at our second-to-last gig, and which captures the mood of the last few days perfectly.
