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 […]

MySpace (that little known social networking site from yester-year) recently published an article on The Icarus Line. 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 […]

Interview with Joe from The Icarus Line @ Catch 22

Posted November 5, 2011 by admin

It must be said that The Icarus Line were really tired by the time they rolled into London for what was to be their final UK show. And although Joe Cardamone was more tired than most, he was still courteous enough to grant me this quick interview with him. I am sorry for the delay […]

Another article from The Icarus Line’s heyday.  This was first printed in ‘Salt For Slugs’ Vol. 4 No. 3 2001, and I am sure that I was very lucky indeed to have picked this up.  Anyway, enjoy…

Sorted Magazine Feature: New levels of Insanity

Posted January 7, 2010 by admin

I still have a few articles from magazines that need to be posted on here – including that (in)famous 5K Review of Mono. I’ll post them up when I have time (and a new scanner)… I have also decided to archive as much TIL content from the web as possible. I guess there is just […]

Kerrang #895 (March 16 2002)

Posted August 31, 2014 by admin

Here are a few scans from Kerrang’s blowout feature on The Icarus Line (circa 2002). To the best of my knowledge, this was the only time that The Icarus Line ever graced the front cover of the British media institution (although I could be wrong). The article contained within was also a veritable highlight. Anyway, […]
