Posted June 18, 2017 by admin

With The Icarus Line now effectively over, and with Joe Cardamone having since charted out new musical territory with his “Holy War” project, I spoke to the former frontman when he toured London (UK) in March about the dissolution of his band and what he hopes to achieve. Enjoy! Joe, you’ve embarked on a solo […]

One Day in Los Angeles: A Story of Buddyhead

Posted January 7, 2010 by admin

I don’t know as to how legitimate this article is, but it’s really funny, and manages to capture the rock n roll craziness of what The Icarus Line were about circa 2004. You can read the full article (along with comments) here, but I am re-posting it on this site just in case the owner […]

Another Review for ‘Avowed Slavery’

Posted July 6, 2014 by admin

Drowned in Sound recently reviewed The Icarus Line’s new (forthcoming) EP and were less then impressed. Arguing that the mini-album lacked the judicious editing and urgency of its bigger brother, the reviewer stated that “keen editing is likely what kept these songs from that record in the first place, and yet that’s something unfortunately absent […]

The Icarus Line featured in NME 6 July 2002

Posted May 3, 2015 by admin

As someone who was an unashamed “Kerrang kid” growing up, I normally never associated myself with NME and its indie championing rhetoric. Of course I sometimes made an exception, and this is one of those rare few occasions when I did go out of my way to pick up an issue. Incidentally enough, it featured […]

Boring Bands: They’ve Come for You!

Posted March 23, 2014 by admin

Here is a really old article of when The Icarus Line were first showing up in the pages of Kerrang. As an introduction, the feature certainly nails the raw intensity of TIL’s earlier recordings. And if you are so inclined, you can check out the printed article in Kerrang April 7 2001. Enjoy!

The Death of Alvin Deguzman

Posted December 3, 2017 by admin

Alvin Deguzman was the guitarist of an American band called The Icarus Line. Although I’d known about The Icarus Line since 2001, it wasn’t until 2004 when I finally got to meet Alvin after his band performed at The Reading Festival. Since then, I’d make sure to go and see him whenever he toured the […]

The Skyscraper Article

Posted January 7, 2010 by admin

I wasn’t aware of this. Apparently The Icarus Line were interviewed by Skyscraper magazine – in their Spring 2004 issue – before the magazine closed to become an online website. I am so going to have to buy a few back-issues of that magazine as I think it really managed to capture the indie spirit […]

More of a history lesson then anything else, the feature encompasses all of the band’s formative years, and brings us square up to date as to what Joe and the gang are up to now. There’s also a […]
