These guys are good. Surely likely to secure a major deal sometime down the line, the Iguana's speciality is bright rock-dance with lyrics that are "not pious but positive". The opener "If Love" is a real groove with a lead singer who recalls half a dozen chart vocalists yet still finds his own identity. "The Struggle (For Existence)" is just as good, discords, fuzz guitar and another tricky-dance beat. The accompanying letter exhorts me to "listen to the tape backwards to hear a positive use of subliminal messages." Unfortunately my tape doesn't play backwards but I'm intrigued. Catch them at a club near you.

I saw these play a number of times and they were brilliant - uplifting - the lead singer was Richard Sampson who has since had a recent dance hit with 7HQ featuring an Iguana Brothers track Rainfall.

The other leader / songwriter was poet / artist Paul Conneally and band members included Billy Davison (sax) and LLoyd Feare
