Biography

The Icicle Works (also known as Icicle Works in USA, are an English alternative rock band and were named after the 1960 short story "The Day the Icicle Works Closed" by science fiction author Frederik Pohl.

They had top 20 UK hit with "Love Is a Wonderful Colour" (1983). In the US and Canada, they reached the charts with the 1984 single "Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream)".

Led by singer-songwriter Ian McNabb, the band released five albums from 1984 to 1990 before breaking up in 1991. McNabb later convened a revised line-up of the band in 2006 to play live shows; this revised Icicle Works line-up still plays sporadic live dates.
