GROWN UP: Keith Allen (autobiography)

keith allen grown up

Anyone that has spent a life time working nine to five and paying into a pension will read Keith Allen’s autobiography, Grown Up, and be forced to consider how mundane and safe their life is.

Keith is famous, although famous for what we are not really sure. He has been a comedian an actor, a pop star, columnist, director and, well, a hell raiser.

Born into a naval family, staying in one place for long has never been part of his makeup. Staying in one relationship or staying in one job haven’t really been big features either. Continue reading GROWN UP: Keith Allen (autobiography)

PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTTING: New album to be previewed by two gigs in Ebbw Vale

psb ebbw valePublic Service Broadcasting are to release their third album this summer and will be previewing it with two low key shows in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.

The following statement has been released by the band today:

Our third album is called Every Valley and is a story of industrial decline. It’s centred around coal mining in the UK, and in South Wales in particular, but it’s a story that’s been repeated across the western world and which has particular resonance in today’s political climate.

LISTEN LIVE: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 142 – Merthyr Rising Special

merthyr rising coverThe Merthyr Rising Festival will be back for a fourth year between the 22nd and 28th May 2017. Peppermint Iguana has invited the people behind the festival in to chat with us for a preview of the events on our show on March 28th 2017.

The show will feature music from some of the bands performing this year and a chat about the films, debates and art that will be part of the diverse line up of this event.

To listen to the show live, go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm till 10pm on Tuesday 28th March

The event marks the 1831 workers uprising. Throughout May 1831 the coal miners and others who worked for William Crawshay took to the streets of Merthyr Tydfil, calling for reform, protesting against the lowering of their wages and general unemployment. Gradually the protest spread to nearby industrial towns and villages and by the end of May the whole area was in rebellion, and it is believed that for the first time the red flag of revolution was flown as a symbol of workers’ revolt.

The event, now in its fourth year, is growing to become a major feature on the calendar of the labour movement, alongside Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival and the Durham Miners Gala. It takes place between the 22nd and 28th May 2017, climaxing in a three day music event in the town centre over the bank holiday weekend.
The event will include political debates, film screenings, art, theater and music. Headliners for the event are The Alabama Three and The Stereo MCs. There will also be a wide range of local beers and food available.

Merthyr Rising Festival and the Peppermint Iguana Radio Show are sponsored by UNISON, the union for public service groovers

DON’T TAKE ME HOME (2017)

dont take me homeIn 2016, Wales qualified for the finals of a major football tournament for the first time in fifty eight years. Needless to say the whole thing became a bit special. Don’t Take Me Home is the story of that balmy, barmy summer in France.

For a few short weeks, the welsh conquered France, in more ways than one. For the followers of more successful teams, this sort of trip is a regular fixture in the calendar. But with this trip being almost six decades in the making, this was a pilgrimage welsh fans had been waiting a lifetime for.

france 2016 (2)

Tens of thousands of ‘Chrissy Coleman’s Barmy Army’ headed to France, utilising planes, trains and automobiles. Some headed out for the duration, some travelled back and fore for each game. Some flew out in luxury, whilst others spent dozens of tortuous hours in busses and cars. Some travelled direct, whilst others took diversions via Spain and Belgium to save money. Some stayed in tents, whilst others lived it up in hotels. Continue reading DON’T TAKE ME HOME (2017)

VARIOUS ARTISTS: Surplus Fest Sampler Volume 1 (Surplus 2017)

surplusCan’t wait for the festival season to start? Fear not, this fifteen track sampler from the Surplus Crew will help blow those winter blues away.

Given that most of the best bands on the underground festival circuit have played at Surplus, an album put together by the crew would inevitably be worth a listen. “Of course it will be good”, we thought to ourselves. But then – “Hold on – who are this lot?” Yes, fair play to the Surplus Crew, they have managed to dig out some bands we had not come across before – and boy is this album a belter. Continue reading VARIOUS ARTISTS: Surplus Fest Sampler Volume 1 (Surplus 2017)

MWSTARD: Cloc (Self Released 2017)

mwstardBass does not have to be sat in the back as part of a rhythm section. Lots of bands have worked that out over the years. And so have Mwstard.

When the three members of the band got together in a community hall in to see Jah Wobble and Keith Levine recreate metal box at the Laugharne Festival they decided to form a band.

They had all been around the block a bit before, so it did not take long for them to start making their bass heavy dub-jazz-post-punk racket. As Laugharne’s most famous resident, Dylan Thomas might have said, “ugly, lovely music … crawling, sprawling … by the side of a long and splendid curving groove. This music was my world” Continue reading MWSTARD: Cloc (Self Released 2017)

Spanner live at the Cardiff Anarchist Bookfair 2017

Well. There’s a full seven days to go to the next radio show as we type this post, but the play list is pretty much done and dusted.

This is always bad news, cos there are bound to be some new tunes that fly through our radar between now and next week that we will feel forced to squeeze in. They are going to have to be real floor shakers to get onto this list though.

The play list mostly contains bands that are going to be playing gigs in the next three weeks and new releases that are too hot to leave out.

Without giving all of the game away, some of the gigs we will be previewing include Spanner, Dub the Earth, Sendelica and Speedometer, whilst some of the new releases featured will include Dreadzone, Thievery Corporation, Tiariwen and Mwstard. We will also be looking forward to the new film about Wales Expolits in Euro 2016 ‘Don’t take me home’.

Oh – and a look back at some of the albums released 40 years ago this week as punk was exploding.

It’s going to be one not to miss.

To listen live go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm o’clock hours on Tuesday 28th February.

And a big high five to our sponsors at www.unisoncwmtaflocalgov.wales .

DREADZONE: Dread Times (Dubwiser Records 2017)

DREADZONE-DREAD-TIMES-320Dreadzone return with their 8th studio album of dubbed up grooviness.

Dreadzone were one of the original pioneers of the digital-dub-dance vibe, releasing their first album way back in 1993. Their third album, ‘Second Light’, from 1995, became a classic and was one of the best albums of the 1990s.

So the all-important question is, twenty plus years on, have they still got the magic touch. The simple answer is – yes. And then some. Continue reading DREADZONE: Dread Times (Dubwiser Records 2017)

LISTEN LIVE: St Valentine’s Day Masacre with Gail Something Else

valentines masacreLove is all you need, some hippy once wrote. Or Love will tear us apart, as some miserable bastard once wrote. Whatever the truth, love has inspired poetry, books, movies, greetings cards and an untold number of songs.

To mark this year’s St Valentine’s Day, Gail Something Else will be joining us once more in the studios of Dapper FM to spin some tunes with the theme of love running through the two hours. Don’t expect it to be all soppy though, cos most of the tunes will actually be anti-love songs.

This is Not a Love Song by PIL, Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division and Love Song by the Damned are just three of the songs that will not be featuring cos they are too predictable.

However, you might hear The Snivelling Shits, Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores and Phat Bollard.

The 2016 Festival season is long behind us, but the next best thing, the ‘festive’ season is hurtling towards us at a rate of knots. And with it comes a shed load of gigs to see out the year. Needless to say, this week’s Peppermint Iguana radio will be featuring some of the best of those gigs, concentrating on our mates that have helped make 2016.

We will also be squeezing in a few of the best releases from the year and if we have time chuck in a few party tunes, just cos it is that time of year.

Expect The Orb, Clutch, Sporadics, Radical Dance Faction, Inner Terrestrials, Laceretillia, Karminsky Expereince, MILK and much much more.

To listen live, tune in to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm till just after 10pm on Tuesday 6th December 2016
