PEPPERMINT IGUANA RADIO # 116 – No more Mr Nice Guy – live 12/04/16

PAIN and Howard Marks - Let me Grow More Weed
PAIN and Howard Marks – Let me Grow More Weed

Mother festival is wiping the sleep out of her eyes, having a bit of a stretch and putting the kettle on for a cup of chai. To provide a sound track to her wake up, on 12th April 2016 Peppermint Iguana Radio will be featuring some of the bands playing the Something Else Solar Warm Up Party and All Tomorrow’s Parties.

So you can expect Muddy Summers, Doozer McDooze and the Firepit Collective to show up on the play list.

Not only is Mother Festival walking up, but the Peppermint Iguana Beehive is also coming to life, so expect lots of bee related tunes from the likes of –erm – TheBees, The Techniques and two different bands called the Supremes.

Sadly, as we were putting the finishing touches to the play list, we heard the news that on 10th April 2016 Mr Nice, AKA, Howard Marks shuffled off his mortal coil, 21 years to the day after being released from prison. Howard was about as rock and roll as it is possible to be, without actually being a rock and roller. He did dabble with the odd collaboration though, and we will be featuring a few of those throughout the show.

To hear all of this, and more, live go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on Tuesday 12th April.

As usual, high five to our sponsors, Rhondda Cynon Taff UNISON, the union for public sector groovers.

Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores

Listen again, to the show the internet was invented for. Swing to the funky grooves, bounce to the punky rebelliousness, and chill to the dubtastic vibrations.

We had an unusually interactive show this week, with the Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores Appreciation Society tuning in en mass. The number of people losing their Dapper FM virginity broke the station record. Big hugs to every one of you.

CHEAP SWEATY SIMON ROCKAWAY – Iguana Radio Special – listen again

Nice work if you can get it – Simon Philips on duty at his record fair

Want to know the truth about that legendary Kurt Cobain proposal to Courtney Love in TJs? Want to know some of the secrets of John Peel’s record collection? Want to hear about Green Day being lower on the bill than the lucky dip? Well this is made for you.

On 23rd February we had the pleasure of being joined in the studio by Mr Cheap Sweaty Simon Rockaway Phillips. Pusher of records to vinyl junkies, gig promoter and all round eminence grease.

Simon started out with Rockaway Records, a small record stall in Newport Provisions Market, and ended up organising record fairs the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way he casually put Newport on the map and played a major role in making Newport’s TJs Legendary throughout the world.

With no ambitions other than to get some of his favourite bands to play his home town, with a cheap ticket price, he played host to names that went on to take the world by storm, from local boys Dub War and Sixty Foot Dolls, to the likes of Therapy? Bad Brains, Green Day, the Butthole Surfers, The Misfits and The Melvins.

Listen again to the show and hear tales of incidents with Kurt Cobain, John Peel and several tons of shredded paper

IGUANA RADIO SPECIAL – Simon Philips – Cheap Sweaty Special Guest

On 23rd February 2016 Peppermint Iguana once again sneak in an extra radio show with a special guest dropping in to shoot the breeze and talk about life, the universe and seven inch vinyl.

Our ‘Star on the reasonably priced radio show’ will be none other than Simon Philips, record dealer, gig promoter and all round eminence grease.

Simon started out with Rockaway Records, a small record stall in Newport Provisions Market, and ended up organising record fairs the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way he casually put Newport on the map and played a major role in making Newport’s TJs Legendary throughout the world.

With no ambitions other than to get some of his favourite bands to play his home town, with a cheap ticket price, he played host to names that went on to take the world by storm, from local boys Dub War and Sixty Foot Dolls, to the likes of Therapy? Bad Brains, Green Day, the Misfits and The Melvins.

Expect two and a bit hours of three old mates chatting about Newport, obscure punk rock and obsessive record collecting – oh, and playing some notable tunes from back in the day.

We even kicked off with a brand new jingle recorded for us by Fraggle of Back To The Planet in his barn with his ferret.

Iguana Radio Show tribute to Bowie (and other rock and roll oddities) listen again

Bowie-spaceoddity

On 19th January we paid tribute to David Bowie. None of us here at Iguana HQ were massive fans of ‘The Thin White Duke’, but it is fair to say he was one of the most influential musicians of the last 50 years – so hats off.

He was often described as a chameleon, which is missing the point slightly. Chameleons change their colours to blend in. Bowie changed his couloirs to stand out – and others changed their colours to copy him.

For us at Iguana, he had not recorded anything that really flicked our switch for over forty years, but some of his early work was absolutely spot on. Changes, Suffragette City, Gene Gene, Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel – all timeless classics. For other generations there will be other periods of his work that did it for them. The point being, everyone out there will like at least one Bowie tune, if not more. Not many artists can claim that.

Then of course there were the collaborations with the likes of Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople and the movies he made.

In this show we pay tribute to his Bowieness by including tracks written by him, inspired by him and even performed by him. As you can expect from an iguana show, our selection wanders away from the expected hits

And it goes without saying, we also spun a selection of new choonage and songs relating to other things going on in the world.

PEPPERMINT IGUANA RADIO # 105 – COMIN’ AT YA TUESDAY 24TH NOVEMBER

DSC_0267Well, there is no avoiding it, we are hurtling towards the end of the year. So Clint will be concentrating his mind for the next few shows on the best of the music released in 2015. Too early to be looking at a best of the year? Well, maybe, but hey, there have been some fantastic new releases this year.

So over the next few shows expect the likes of AOS3, Moonloonies, One Eyed God, Cosmo, The Membranes, Clutch, Public Service Broadcasting, Sendelica, Nuke on Route, Scum of Toytown, Pretty Vicious and many more to make it onto Clint’s play lists.

No doubt John will also be reflecting on the last year and the new-old releases he has got his mitts on at various record fairs, boot sales and independent record stores.

To hear the next show, log on to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on Tuesday 24th November. You can also interact with us via facebook by going to the show’s event page.

Next PEPPERMINT IGUANA RADIO SHOW – Tuesday 10th November from 8pm

Well, it might be our 104th show, but The Artist Formerly Known as Ginger John has been absent without leave a few times since we first hit the air. There was the time he had the gastric band fitted, the time he wanted to catch up with the live East Enders, the time he was washing his hair and the time he was doing the thing we promised to never talk about in public. So – anyway – he is going to be celebrating his 100th radio show this week, bless him. His play list will include some of his favourite tunes that he has played when he can be bothered to turn up, including Alton Elis, The Clash, Chiefs of Relief, The Impressions and the Slaves.

Clint, meanwhile, has spent the last week protesting at the abuse of lions and tigers near Bargoed (no, they are not normally fund in Bargoed, it was a travelling circus). So he will have a number of lion/tiger/circus themed tracks to fit alongside his usual mix of new releases and previews of forthcoming gigs. Expect The Members, AOS3, Dugmus, Cabinet of Millionaires and Radical Dance Faction to make it through to his final list.

Tune in via www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm o’clock on Tuesday 10th November.

As usual, big up to our sponsors, Rhondda Cynon Taff UNISON, the union for public sector groovers.

Peppermint Iguana Radio # 103 – a farewell to Mark – listen again

Our most recent radio show was a mixture of elation and deep sadness. We celebrate the welsh football team qualifying for their first major tournament since 1958, mark the arrival of new albums by Cosmo and Killing Joke and look forward to the knees up that will mark the 20th and 25th anniversaries of Tarantism and AOS3 respectively.

However, we also say goodbye to Mark Humpries, who has sadly gone on to the great gig in the sky since our last show. Many will remember him playing with bands like Pod, Dooffer and Cakehole Presley. Many more will have seen him simply busking around the Hayes area of Cardiff, casually putting all other buskers to shame with his abundance of talent, making the most complicated of things look simple.

Expect Mark to pop up throughout the show.
