Ice Cream Headaches
The Ice Cream Headaches are an improvisational rock band, known (scarcely) for their energetic, off-the-cuff performances and on-stage antics. They first appeared in St. John's, Newfoundland in 2007. Who they are and where they came from are topics often discussed around the city of St. John's, but usually in vain, as the Ice Cream Headaches have managed to remain virtually out of sight for almost three years. There was one report in 2009 of a masked figure in green tights and a pink boa jumping from rooftop to rooftop downtown, and it is believed it could have been Dysilvia or Lothlorien Creme. This has led to the belief that the Ice Cream Headaches live in one of the many vacant buildings downtown, however, various searches of these buildings have yielded no sightings, save for a few fake moustaches and half a brace of six-inch platform shoes. Their debut album "like space itself... The Ice Cream Headaches ...require a new understanding of time" was recorded in four sessions during the month of February, 2010, for the RPM Challenge. Notably, one of these sessions was on the former set of "Teen Wolf," whose sequel several members of the band were asked to audition for. Keeping to what we assume are their principles, the album is 52 minutes of purely improvisational music, from trance to rock to funk ... and their lyrics, as can be expected from their live shows, are often cataclysmic and fantastical in nature, though they sometimes have an air of mundanity or, even humanity. The Ice Cream Headaches have passed on this message for listeners of the album: "What you call hope, we call destiny. And it is your destiny to love this album."
Florian Creme, Wallace Creme, Finbar Creme, Julius O. Creme, Lothlorien Creme, and Dysilvia Creme.
like space itself... the Ice Cream Headaches ...require a new understanding of time(2010)
A purely improvisational milieu of funk, rock, roots ... whatever comes out, actually. The ad libitum lyrics are often cataclysmic or cosmic in nature...and often mundane as well. Most definitely energetic, and not without a flavour of insanity.
