An occasional blog about natural history, travel, books and writing ... and anything else that catches my attention.
Classic! Took me back to my time in London, a grey, foggy day walking up Bayswater Road, listening to Icehouse, and in particular "Street Cafe", "Hey, little girl" and "Great southern land" on my Walkman, and feeling the pangs of homesickness. Oh, I love that group! Thanks for the blast from the past.
When "Flowers" released their song "Icehouse", they failed to realise there was already another band by the name of "Flowers", so they had to change it. For some reason, they liked the name "Icehouse", and so it came to pass that they named themselves after their first hit song.
Tracey, have you heard Icehouse's 'Berlin Tapes'? It's another collaboration with the Sydney Dance Company. All cover songs (Bowie, Velvet Underground, XTC and others). Dark Orange/Mr Green Hellbound, you're back!
