Simon's Pet Iguana - Simon Says (1994)

Simon's Pet Iguana - Simon Says

Dan Izzo has passed this one onto us. Handsome Dan confirms our suspicions by noting, "I used to see them about three times a month at the Black Lung."

Dan also says one or more of these guys went on to form Downway. We have no idea what he's talking about.

And if you don't know where the Black Lung was, you weren't there.

I was Ocean Productions who used to book all ages shows at the black lounge. You can see me thanked on their tape insert. Anyways, Dave and Dave originally had named their band The Simultaneousy Playing Instruments. I booked their first show (as I went to high school with them). I put S.P.I. on the poster because the name they had chosen was way too long. After the posters were all printed someone pointed out to them that this was kind of a lame name. I refused to reprint the posters so they had to come up with a name that also used the initials S.P.I. It was both Daves that went on to form Downway.

I used to sell knives with one of the guys in this band and he gave me one of those demo tapes. It was great. I wish i hadn't given all my tapes to my brother. They're all gone now.
