Iguana Gigs

iggy-yinyang-write onIn 1995 we started putting on gigs. The aim was to put on bands that no one else was putting on in South Wales and we would otherwise have to travel miles to see.

We only ever worked with bands we liked and it was never a profit making exercise.

When we started we were doing gigs on a fairly regular basis, but as the numbers involved in organising dropped and the work was falling onto an increasingly smaller posse, things started to become a chore rather than fun, the gigs eventually ground to a halt.
