Dreadzone @ the Globe, Cardiff

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 160: Mega three hour DIY Underground showcase thingy

Sunday lunch DIY underground style – with The Mob

To help Dapper FM celebrate ten years on air, on 5th December we embarked on a three hour radio odyssey showcasing as many of our mates as we could.

No golden oldies or hidden gems just mates from the DIY underground. It was impossible to fit all of our mates on, so apologies for those that missed out. However, a few of those missing from the list can be found on our round up of 2017 show and there will be more on our festive knees up on 19th December.

Putting the play list together was quite humbling. We feel privileged to count so many damn fine creative musicians in our extended Iguana family. Our hats off to you all.

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)

LEE SCRATCH PERRY: Visions of paradise (2016)

LEE SCRATCH PERRY: Visions of Paradise (2016)
lee-perry-Poster

Whilst Lee Scratch Perry is hardly a household name, there can be few people on the planet that have not been touched by his work or the ripples in the musical pond that have been caused by the sonic stones he has dropped in it.

This film is the culmination of footage collected by the makers over fifteen years. If you are not familiar with the man, don’t expect to a chronological documentary detailing his life and his work. This is more a collage mixing animation, interviews with people he has influenced and conversations with the man himself. The result is an insight into the workings of the mind of a man who straddles the border between genius and madman. Continue reading LEE SCRATCH PERRY: Visions of paradise (2016)
