Icehouse was another group that was popular when I lived in Sydney. The group was called Flowers and released a great album called Icehouse. When they signed a US contract, I think, the name was taken so they changed the band name to the name of the album/song.
One of my favorite albums with tracks like 'We can get together' 'I can't help myself' 'Fatman' and others. I liked this LP better than anything the band did afterward. Iva Davies disbanded the group and pretty much took on the name himself with a rotating band of musicians for a while, iirc.
I wish Rhapsody carried this album. 'Icehouse' needs to be on my Halloween playlist.
Devil lives inside the icehouse
At least that's what the old ones say
They say, (he came a long time ago)
He came here with the winter snow
Now it's colder every day.
Well, look what I found on Youtube, of all places.
I remember hearing "We Can Get Together", believe it or not, on Top 40 radio more often than on AOR Radio. OTOH, the title track received major AOR airplay, though, I mainly recall it as the second Icehouse track on two-fer Tuesday, when "Crazy", "Electric Blue" and the David Bowie -Esq, "No Promises" -- The band's other major AOR hit in the States -- were at their peak, and still remains, IMO, the band's definitive AOR radio track.
