Icehouse and The Angels Get Together For Iconic Moment of Performance of ‘Marseilles’

Icehouse and The Angels combined for a powerhouse performance of the classic Angels track ‘Marseilles’ in Adelaide over the weekend.

The Angels co-founders John and Rick Brewster joined Icehouse at the Adelaide 500 to play the song they first recorded for the 1978 ‘Face To Face’ album. “Four old blokes, four loud guitars, one riff – Pub Rock!! I AM a pig in shit,” Icehouse guitarist Paul Gildea declared in a socials post.

Last weekend at the One Electric Day Icehouse performance in Melbourne before performing ‘Marseilles’ in their encore, Iva Davies said The Angels were one of those iconic bands as Icehouse were starting out.

Icehouse and The Angels went on to share management in the 1980s under Dirty Pool. That story is partly told in Rod Willis’ new book ‘Ringside’.

On Friday, Icehouse and Simple Minds teamed up for the release of a cover of T.Rex’s ‘Get It On’ ahead of their reunion dates for Red Hot Summer in 2024. That relationship goes back to 1982 when Icehouse and Simple Minds first toured Australia together on a double bill.

For Simple Minds, new music wasn’t that long ago. The 19th Simple Minds album ‘Direction of the Heart’ was released in 2022.

Icehouse hasn’t had a new album since the covers record ‘Heroes’ in 2004 but we have to go back 30 years to October 1993 for the last studio album of original songs from Icehouse ‘Big Wheel’.
