DVD-AUDIO CD, HIGH RESOLUTION SAME AS SACD
About the Artist
Pregnant women and people with heart ailments should avoid this ride. Remember being a child at one of those Vons parking lot carnivals, being strapped against the wall, side by side in a circle... They start spinning you around at speeds that are lethal on the highway, your face pinned to the matted wall behind you... out of the corner of your eye you can see the expressions on your pathetic comrades faces across the sphere. Then the bottom drops out and your feet have nothing to touch for security and the patheticness turns to pure fear and the smell of vomit rises in the air. Just when you think youre gonna pass out or cry or urinate yourself, the spinning slows to a stop, the floor returns and youre released, smiling, grinning, asking your friend, "Wanna go again?"
Thats the feeling you might get when seeing The Icarus Line live. Its powerful, savage, and abusive. Its fucking scary. But there is a joy in being scared. Its a rush, and when you get comfortable with it, you find its niche, relate to its void. The Icarus Lines live show is like seeing Satan having a temper tantrum, but knowing hes not mad at you, thus enabling you to enjoy the carnage. In under two years of existence, Los Angeles, CAs, The Icarus Line have a half a dozen tours under their belt, covering most of the US, and solidifying a strong following up and down the west coast. After a few 7"s (Buddyhead, Hellcat) and a blood curdling EP (New American Dream), the band has found a home on crank! A RECORD COMPANY. Mono is the bands first full length release on CD and DVD-Audio.
