Students of Australian music need to listen once to the first six songs on Icehouse by Flowers as part of first-year New Wave. Beyond that, singles will do. Hitting fast forward a lot.
Mostly. I have discovered the best Icehouse album ever recorded: The Berlin Tapes, a collection of post-punk covers Iva Davies put together for a Sydney Dance Company production. Yet again, we see excessively skilled musicians do well handed someone else’s songs. I most strongly commend to you “Disappointed?” His “Love Like Blood” wins as well. How the hell did I not hear of this when it came out?
