Ian McNabb (The Icicle Works)


Part of the Liverpool renaissance movement of the eighties, alongside acts such as Echo And The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, WAH!, Heat, OMD, Black, Dead Or Alive, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Lotus Eaters, and China Crisis, in 1981 Ian formed The Icicle Works.

They scored a top 15 hit with "Love Is A Wonderful Colour" in the U.K ; and top 40 placings in the U.S, Canada, and Europe with "Birds Fly (Whisper To A Scream)" and enjoyed Top 40 success with three of their albums until they split up in 1988.
As well as collaborations with his friend and previous Icicle Works producer, Ian Broudie - a number of his songs featured on subsequent Lightning Seeds records - and The Waterboys, his solo career of guitar driven pop/rock has subsequently seen him nominated for a Mercury Music Prize, and two UK Top 30 albums including “one of the best records released in Q magazine’s lifetime”.
