Fact: The Icons = TOTAL ROCK ACTION! On their second release in 25 years, these Seattle Underground Rock Gods slap together an irreverent pile of noisy guitar songs filled with brain-sucking hooks in the tradition of the Pacific Northwest. As raw as The Clash, as stupid as the New York Dolls and as intellectually stimulating as Lou Reed on a really bad day, this ain't for the faint of heart. Guest superstars include Jeff Kelly of the Green Pajamas, multiinstrumentalist indie-star Amy Denio and Glen Slater from the Walkabouts. Expanding the pandemonium of Green Monkeys reissue of The Icons 1986 'Masters of Disaster', with 16 full songs 'Appointment With Destiny!' delivers the
mighty rock and tuneful thrashing you should always expect from these four misguided post-moderns. Have mercy. The Icons have always made music just for the plain and simple good of it, art for art's sake. But with the release of 'Destiny!', they are finally on the verge of fame and fortune... 'Appointment with Destiny!' is the 'Sgt. Peppers' of the 21st Century. They are the walrus. The Icons are: pretty boys Tom Dyer - Guitar, Vocals and Steve Trettevik - Guitar, Vocals - plus Hades own rhythm section, James Gascoigne on drums and Rick Yust on bass and vocals. Add it all up and it equals Total Rock Action!

JIM OF SEATTLE - WE ARE ALL FAMOUS

Jim of Seattle makes a lot of different kinds of music. Somehow it all fits. Take some Van Dyke Parks, stir in some Beach Boys, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Dr. Suess and maybe youve got a start. Hmm. You might as well toss in Mancini, They Might Be Giants and Bjork ... read more »
