LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 174 – Once Upon a Time in the West Special 03/07/18

With Once Upon a Time in the West Festival around the corner, we thought it would be rude to not dedicate a significant slice of our most recent show to bands playing the event. So we did.

We also sung happy birthday to the NHS, told The Donald what we thought of him and had our own mini sonic world cup thing going on.

We were going head to head with England v Columbia, so one or two of you may have missed the show going out live. Fear not, the whole thing, mono-warts and all (we lost one of the channels for a bit at the start of the show), is here for you to listen to again below.

LISTEN AGAIN: Iguana Radio # 172 West Wales Vibrations

Last weekend the iguana crew spent many lazy hours looking out over Cardigan Bay, whilst soaking up some festival vibrations.

And it was as we looked out over the water, we came up with a cunning plan. A radio show made up entirely of bands we have seen in west Wales over the years.

Some were from last weekend, whilst some are from gigs going back to the last century.

Peppermint Iguana Radio # 177 – Three Dub Plates outside Dapper FM, Penywaun

On Tuesday 27th February, we braved the cold of the ‘Breeze from the Seas’ to bring you another hot episode of the Peppermint Iguana Radio Show.

We had joy, we had fun, we had two hours on air mun.

Then we had to warm the car up for ten minutes to defrost the brakes which had frozen on. I tell you what dudes, it’s two coats colder up in that Penywaun.

Anyway, whilst you are confined to barracks because of the ‘Beast from the East’, you can listen to the show again to warm the heart of your cockles. Just click on the mixycloud thingy

Lisa bribes her way into Clint’s heart tog et on the radio

For this week’s radio show we looked back on the days when we used to put on gigs on a regular basis.

The peppermint Princess, Lisa Dreads, joined us in the studio for the night. She was shy, she was losing her voice, but she still managed to be louder than our microphones could handle.

Back in the day we just put gigs on. It was what we did. But going back through the list we can safely say we put some pretty tidy bands on, even if we say so ourselves.

And we are getting back into it – kicking off with a gig Le Pub – with the awesome Tarantism Folk Disco headlining

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.

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 159: Unexpected show in the Dapper FM area

This ‘Selected highlights of 2017’ show is a bit unique, having been broadcast not once, but twice!

“How can that be?” we hear you cry. Well, it was first broadcast on Tuesday 28th November, but after the show finished we managed to break the station and loose the recording. Normally we would just shrug our shoulders and move on. But this was a reflection on some of the year’s best choonage with a rather splendid play list. So we decided to do the show again with the same play list.

Find out if it was worth the effort by checking out the cloudcast below. Continue reading LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 159: Unexpected show in the Dapper FM area

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 158 – Mind your head with CAPTAIN PARANOID

Just because you are paranoid it does not mean they are not out to get you

On 21st November the legend that is Captain Paranoid joined Peppermint Iguana in the studio for a very special radio show.

Pick a few songs we said. The next thing we knew we had a massive thirty eight track play list and he could not make up his mind which ones to loose. He was even arguing with musicians he has collaborated with over which version of his own songs to play.

We were well over an hour into the show before we finally worked out what the play list was going to look like. But hey, this is what happens when working with people who are all consumed by music and are filled with passion and emotion. It was memorable. To say the least.

To listen to the show again click on the cloudcast below – and below that is what we think the play list was – even now it is hard to keep up with what went on!

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 157 – 100th Anniversary of the October Revolution

On 7th November 2017, we went out live and direct, broadcasting to the free world, with a show that marked one hundred years to the day, since the October Revolution in Russia.

On 7th November 1917 the Red Guard occupied government buildings in Petrograd, in preparation of the storming of the winter palace, which took place on 8th November.

The start of ten days that shook the world, ten days that had an impact on every man woman and child on the planet, ten days that are still reverberating around the world today.

There are far better places to go for a history lesson of those one hundred years, but we had a go at reflecting on the last century using rock and roll as our media of choice.

From October 1917 itself, through plots and coups, through wars, cold and hot, through the expansion of an ideology to the collapse of an empire.

LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguaua Radio Show # 155 – The Shape of things to come 10/10/17

On the 10th October we hit the hit the airwaves once more for a show full to overflowing with hot new releases, and demos.

Throughout the summer we have been concentrating on the UK festival scene, showcasing the bands playing the best of the underground gigs. But the season is finally over. Tents are now being stuffed into attics for the winter, lightweight caravans are being put in storage and hardcore trucks are heading for the sun.

So for this show we caught up with some of the demos and freebies we have had sent to us through the summer, but not got around to playing. Despite cocking up the advertising for the show, twice, forgetting to take our glasses into the studio and leaving the iguana phone back at HQ, it was a blast.

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.

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.
