Transmitting to record stores on Monday, September 6 is
the new Icehouse single "Satellite"! The CD single will contain
the original version of the song, as well as a 12" remix called the
"Ecstatic mix." The other two tracks featured are another new
song called "Orbital Line," and one of the Brian Eno songs they
did for the Big Day In back in June. The one they chose is "Blank
Frank." The album is still slated to be released in October and a
title is still forthcoming. The record shop clerks that we've spoken to
in Australia say the industry buzz is this song is HOT and everyone
is very impressed
stupendously impressed!! Triple J is beginning
to play this new scorcher and we encourage everyone in Oz to ring them
up and request it! The video has also hit the airwaves and is said to
look really good!
Speaking of videos, two more have been filmed, using Trackdown Studios
as the location. Starring in these are Iva, Paul W., and David Chapman.
A photo shoot has also taken place, and as soon as we see the proof, so
will all of you! However, the band line-up for possible touring has not
yet been confirmed.
Also, keep your eyes open for Mr. Davies himself! Iva will be hitting
the road on September 6 to do a press tour of Oz. He'll also take that
hop, skip, and jump over to New Zealand on the 13th. He'll be there for
two days before returning to Australia. Iva will be reacquainting himself
with the press corps and also stopping in to talk with a few record company
executives along the way. What this means to us, as fans, is more magazine,
newspaper, and radio appearances!! We've got a lot to look forward to
and it's all starting to happen now!
Our thanks go out to Louise Stovin-Bradford for passing along this information
and giving us a portion of her very valuable time - something she has
in short supply these days! Also, thanks to Paul Wheeler for helping us
out with information, and being "cool!"
