Jonny is a ghost writer for Dickhouse Productions (the makers of Jackass) and he writes and performs all the parts for punk/garage/surf songs that are placed in their TV shows and films. The music division of Dickhouse Productions is called Uranus Music. This is why all of the Jonny Manak EPs are titled "Songs for Uranus."
