Burnside Album Details

Icons, The, Appointment With Destiny!

Fact: The Icons = TOTAL ROCK ACTION! On their second release in 25 years, these Seattle Underground Rock Gods slap together an irreverent pile of noisy guitar songs filled with brain-sucking hooks in the tradition of the Pacific Northwest. As raw as The Clash, as stupid as the New York Dolls and as intellectually stimulating as Lou Reed on a really bad day, this ain't for the faint of heart. Guests superstars include Jeff Kelly of the Green Pajamas, multi-instrumentalist indie-star Amy Denio and Glen Slater from the Walkabouts."...there are lots of young musicians trying to capture this kind of guitar-driven spike-pop sound and not doing it nearly as well." The Big Takeover, 2009
