What people are saying about The Icicle Works

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wold have been 5 stars but.. Great gig last night at Clitheroe, McNabb on fine form. Took my Son who was born when they were at their Pomp in the 80's.Saw them quite a few times back then so was interested in how they'd sound now. Brought back some great memories. Would have marked it as a 5 out of 5 but for them not doing 'Love Is A Wonderful Colour' or 'Birds Fly (Whisper To A Scream)..' Does anyone know why they don't/didn't do those 2 Si in bolton

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ian McNabb, one of the most underrated songwriters the U.K. has produced Have wanted to see the Icicle Works in my home town for a long time, for whatever reasons I always missed them. Obviously the line up has changed down the years, but the musicianship, passion and professionalism hasn’t. The marathon performance was unexpected, but much appreciated. Ian’s voice has lost none of its strength and his poetry; by way of lyrics and music, is second to none. Would have loved to have heard two-three more from “If you want to deafest your enemy..” but I’m being greedy, maybe “walking with a mountain” “who do you want for your love?” and “sweet Thursday” will be for another day. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Object lesson in great tunes and musicianship. I attended this event with mates who were all eager to see The Icicle Works after many years. The show kicked off at 7pm, and comprised of two sets. The first set comprised of a few singles and then the whole of the first album. Kicking off with "When it all come down" it was joy to hear such a great collection of musicians given such a great sound through the PA. For a change! Mr McNabb still has an amazing voice after all these years, and the band did a stellar job of what must be a very set of songs to play live. After a 15 minute break the band emerged with two additional backing singers. They then performed the whole of Iain's solo album from 1994, "Head like a Rock" I was slightly dubious about this as I wondered how this would go over in a live setting. I needn't of worried. This performance was absolutely outstanding , and I will definitely be revisiting this album. Winding up with Icicle Works classic "Hollow Horse' this gig exceeded my expectations. Great sound, great atmosphere. My gig of the year thus far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Too long. Too pretentious. Constantly tuning guitar. Jokes about pulling scrubbers and Rohypnol are in incredibly poor taste. Should have left you back in the 80s. Zero rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gig of the years I enjoyed of every moment. The venue was small and intimate. Perfect interaction with the public.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fab music Fabulous music from a great performer who was, as always great value for money but spoiled by the venue being quite cold, no need to worry about where to put your jacket! As with most venues I suppose drinks a bit on the pricey side and didn't get what was asked for on the two trips to the bar
