Band has new generation of followers
Icehouse live with Tony Mott. The band has a new wave of fans and a back catalogue being re-mastered.
Iva Davies is working in his Sydney
studio to help re-master the whole
Icehouse back catalogue.
The creative force behind one of the
most iconic Australian bands of all
time is aware that a newly re-fined
Icehouse album will appeal to a
generation of fans.
The sort of fans living and breathing
the vast soundscapes of albums,
Icehouse and Primitive Man -- then
dancing to the polished pop of
Measure to Measure and Man of
But it s not only older fans
savouring Icehouse s extraordinary
musical legacy. The band re-formed
three years ago; and Davies noticed
young fans enjoying songs "the band
was playing well before they were
The evolution in technology, he
said, had created new means to deliver
music and new audiences keen to
discover music that has gone before.
"The younger generation is
consuming and vitalising music from
the 60s, 70s and 80s which of course
includes us," he said.
It s easy to forget how big Icehouse
were. In July 1975, Davies career
really began with the release of his
first single Leading Lady and B side
I'm Gonna Give You All My Love.
But it wasn t until 1980 that Davies
put his name on the map when the
successful pub band he founded,
Flowers, signed a recording contract
with Regular Records. Their debut
album Icehouse made it into the Top 5,
becoming the highest ever selling
debut album in Australia.
From there, the band amassed an
amazing 28 platinum albums, eight top
10 albums and more than 30 Top 40
singles. Not bad for a pub band caught
in the middle of the Sydney punk
"We had to walk a very fine line
which was to retain the integrity of
those punk elements, but also
introduce in our own way these
soundscapes that are more
comfortable in a Pink Floyd song, and
it was a peculiar kind of hybrid,"
Catch Icehouse at Canberra's
Southern Cross Club on
Wednesday, September 3. Dinner

ALBUM: SINGLES / ARTIST: FUTURE ISLANDS
Committed outfit always taking you somewhere new
Canberra s Landspeed Records is a
musical institution and let s hope it
never gets swallowed by the sterile
conglomerate shopping malls haunting
Not only has it retained its
alternative charm, but if often has
music pouring out of its considerable
speakers, enticing you to buy
something you ve never heard of.
Baltimore s Future Islands was
recently playing in that store, with
Samuel T. Herring s rusty vocals as
passionate as I ve heard in a while (in
that tortured, soulful way).
It wasn t long before their new
album Singles was in my possession
and I was frantically searching for the
Letterman Late Show performance
(check it out on YouTube and marvel
at Herring s possessed dancing style
and gesticulation in Seasons).
Seasons is a game-breaker for the
band -- a pure indie-pop delight with
real meaning and a sense of
Like most of the album, it carries
you somewhere mysterious and new.
Most of the indie-synth ballads are
tinged by a feeling of inner sadness --
and deeply influenced by the
electronica of New Order, Kraftwerk
and another Baltimore band going by
the name of Beach House.

FIVE POTTERS AND A
Five potters and a painter are uniting to
present an exhibition of new work at
the Watson Arts Centre. The five
potters -- Sally Armstrong, Emily
Laszuk, Margaret Ling, Louise
Ranshaw and Pauline Wellfare -- are
part of Bathurst Potters Group, and
draw inspiration from nature for their
latest exhibition. The ceramics
includes vessels that work with light
and shadow to create dappling effects,
and colour illusion. Canberra painter
Barbara Hiscock Laszuk focuses on
her evolving work of the human form.
The series of paintings explores layers
of DNA, taking viewers on a thought-
provoking journey. Untitled -- Six is on
show at the Watson Arts Centre from
September 4-14, from 10am-4pm
Thursday to Sunday.
