Love is a wonderful colour - Icicle works

The Icicle Works' frontman Ian McNabb sounds suspiciously like David Bowie in this track, 'Love is a wonderful colour'. Their first hit single, entering the UK singles chart on December 24, 1983, it was also their biggest, peaking at number 15 during a 9 week chart run.

This 12" single features an extended remix of almost 7 minutes created by Hugh Jones. The two B-side tracks also appeared on a limited edition double single which I've written about almost three years ago.

My collection: 12" single no. 226
Found: Plaatboef, Den Haag, 1994
Cost: 2,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Love is a wonderful colour (long version)' / 'Waterline', 'In the dance the shaman led'

  1. Used to love the Icicle Works - had lots of vinyl but foolishly sold it all (am currently re-stocking my record collection after several turntable-less years, which I'm periodically scribbling about on my own blog).

    A friend has memories of seeing them live, and McNabb introduced this as the 'song that paid for my house'. Can't really begrudge him that!
