JAMES WILLIAMSON jams with THE ICARUS LINE

 










 It's loud, insistent, rhythmically, uh... brisk, emotionally raw, bombastic even at times like the best of heavy metal or the Grand Opera. But it's far from heavy metal or the Grand Opera: all it has in common with them is sheer grandeur. The Icarus Line is an onslaught of well-played, proud rocknroll noise led by giving-it-his-all singer Joe Cardamone who thinks I don't understand. I don't need to understand. I feel everything they send out, like every single member of their audience.


Hall of Fame guitarist extraordinaire James Williamson (above left) of Iggy and The Stooges joined The Icarus Line onstage 12.11.14 at Silverlake's Echoplex for several Stooges songs and more  thanks to singer Joe Cardamone's participation in Williamson's new Re-Licked solo album that features 14 passionate singers on the lost Stooges songs that were to have followed up Raw Power (more to come on this.) Formed in 1998 and with 7 album releases, The Icarus Line cranks out raw power of its own intense 
divination...



The Icarus Line are: 
Joe Cardamone, vocals; John Bennett, guitar, Jeremy Gill, sax/ keyboard; Alvin Guzman, bass; Ben Hallett, drums. For more info, click LINK
