It would be a little bit egotistical to review a gig we have promoted ourselves, so here is a blog post about the first Peppermint Iguana gig for fourteen years.
It started out as a simple enough idea, Peppermint Iguana were going to team up with the Green Gatherings Campaign Crew (well, Tom Fowler) to put on a show case of some of the artists than have been found performing on the ‘open mic’ that the Campaigns crew host at the annual green gathering in Chepstow.
We started off with booking the amazing Tarantism Folk Disco, who have blown minds at the last two Green Gatherings. Then we started talking to some of our other mates who had also played our stage. It was not long before we had a list of bands that, frankly, was quite ridiculous for one night. But hey, we aint nothing if not one big happy family and we could not chuck anyone off the list (we just had to stop Tom inviting anyone else when he was pissed).
John Baine (AKA Attila) is not really a Stockbroker. Ray Burns is neither a Captain, nor Sensible. Rhiannon Crutchley, however, really is a Brewer’s Daughter.
When not helping dad out with bottling craft beers her time is split between recording and gigging on her own as The Brewer’s Daughter, playing fiddle with Tarantism, touring with the likes of Back to the Planet and Hawkwind, or just sailing up and down the canal in the narowboat she calls home. She even played the legendary 100 club in 2017. Continue reading THE BREWER’S DAUGHTER: Make Believe (Self Released 2016)→
The boy Fowler has been nagging to come back and do another radio show, so we have let him come back on the 18th July to shut him up.
“Get me back before Green Gathering” he said, “so I can play loads of Green Gathering bands and talk about the Radical Wales Campaign Area” he said.
So here we are, he is doing a show before the Green Gathering and how many GG bands is he playing? None. Not one. He is just playing his favourite recent tunes. We are sure he will do loads of talking about the festival though.
Don’t panic, Clint to the rescue, he will be playing some GG related choonage. He will also be playing a few teaser tracks by bands playing the forthcoming Landed Festival and will be announcing a special mega give away competition related to the aforementioned Landed.
Clint will also be throwing in some tunes that are not related to any festivals – they are just new.
