Ton Fowler, a face for the radio if ever there was one

He nagged and nagged to be invited back, so we gave in and said yes. On 18th July Tom Fowler swept into the studio, swore a lot, and played some of his favourite releases of the year so far.

Clint meanwhile, played loads of choons by bands that are playing this year’s Green Gathering, spun a few hot new releases, and announced a major competition to win tickets to Landed festival

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.

Next live show, Tuesday 4th July, a day when we traditionally celebrate Independents – bands that do it themselves without the assistance of ‘the music industry’.

OK – some of us actually do that every day, but hey, we got to call the show something.

Between now and then we will be in a field drinking dodgy cider and listening to loud music, doing research for you. Who know what we will discover that will make it to the final play list.

Tune in from 8 till 10pm by going to www.dapperfm.co.uk

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 147 – Solstice/Surplus Festival Special

Two Speed Steve, The Boy Fry and Torrie - SURPLUS PEOPLE!
Two Speed Steve, The Boy Fry and Torrie – SURPLUS PEOPLE!

Peppermint Iguana don’t do festivals, if they did they would look a bit like Surplus Fest.

In the last four years they have held six festivals at three different locations. This year they return to the same site as last year, having struck a good relationship with the landowner after the 2016 event.

Surplus is an old skool event, organised by underground festival heads, for underground festival heads. They are all volunteers and the priority is having a good time whilst providing a space for the tribe to gather, rather than making a fast buck.

With bands and DJs spread over five stages, the line us is a veritable who’s who of the festival underground, including Radical Dance faction, Hawklords, the Omega Tribe, AOS3, Tribazik, Kilnaboy, Clusterfuck, The Sporadics, Dub the Earth, The Autonomads and Lacertillia.

Whilst there will be enough crusty-ska-punk-dub-stoner-rock-legends to keep the keenest of brew crew happy – and their dog – there will also be plenty of new music to discover, such as welsh outfits Captain Accident and the Disasters, the Chalk Outlines and the Biggest Things Since Powdered Milk, alongside Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters from that London and Cornwall’s Cybernetic Witch Cult.

In short, this is set to be one of the best festivals of the summer.

On 20th June 2017, the eve of the summer solstice, three of the disorganisers of the festival, the Boy Fry (singer with Lacertilla and all round mover and shaker on the UK stoner rock scene), Steve Speed (techno head and trouble maker) and Torrie (old git, veteran scrap merchant from 2,000 Dirty Squatters and general rouge) joined us in the studio for a special radio show.

The result of that two hours of mayhem can be heard again by clicking on the cloudcast thingy below.

LISTEN LIVE: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 147 – Surplus Festival/Solstice special

suplus air guitarOur next show goes out on the eve of the summer solstice and will preview the forthcoming Surplus Festival, which takes place in South Wales, 30th June to 2nd July.

Festival organisers Torrie, Fry and Speed will join us in the studio talk about all things Surplus and spin some of the bands and DJs that will be performing over the weekend.

The festival is basically a who is who of the current festival underground and has more of our favourite bands than you can shake a stick at. It is going to be hard work working out who we can leave off the play list.

Expect The Defekters, Black Star Dub Collective, 2,000 Dirty Squatters, Lacertilla, Clusterfuck, AOS3, P.A.I.N. Radical Dance Faction and much much more (so long as the Torrie and gang stop talking long enough for us to play some music)

As usual, our most recent show featured bands we have recently caught live, bands we are going to see in the next two weeks and some stuff relevant to current affairs.

But sadly, we had to kick off with a tribute to long time friend of the iguana Tribe, Anne Nicholson, who slipped away to the great after party in the sky on Monday 5th June. Anne was an inspiration and wise head to the many of us who knew her and will be sadly missed.

Tragically, twenty four hours before the show, thousands of kids went to a pop concert in the Manchester Arena and not everyone came home. So the show includes love vibrations going out to the Peoples Republic of Madchester.

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.

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.

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.

To find out what makes it on to the final play list, go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm till 10pm GMT on Tuesday 14th February 2017.
