Iggy always had a certain flair for pomp and circumstance and as such it never surprised us that she went out - with a bang - minutes before her birthday. And although there is sadness in our hearts we - as the Reverend of the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit - think that celebration is better than mourning. So move those chairs and tables and join us for our annual whoopee! But first:
An Ongoing Tradition
Iggy’s online birthday festivities started in 2011 when there were those mythical groups around like Clowns & Jugglers, No Man's Land, Birdie Hop and other swoon rooms. It was artist and general pain-in-the-arse Jenni Fiire who organised the first Iggy Birthday Bash to show 'how much we love and appreciate her'. Hundreds of messages reached Iggy Rose that day.
2013 had multi-instrumentalist Rich Hall create a song about that wacky Church and its even wackier followers. Originally titled The Reverend, the song pretty well sums up what Iggy stood - and still stands - for, because In Iggy We Trust.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY IGGY ROSE!
The Church wishes to thank Jenni Fiire, Rich Hall and everybody still
