The 12 Inches

The 12 Inches

Australia’s first ‘supergroup’ of the 1980s, led by the ever-present Iva Davies.

24 tracks on 2CDs, many exclusive and otherwise unavailable mixes.

Contains the extended versions of US hits ‘Crazy’ (#14) and ‘Electric Blue’ (#7), both 1988.

Features US and 12-inch versions of the hit ‘Hey Little Girl’ (UK #17, 1983), plus extended club mix and 12-inch versions of ‘No Promises’ (UK #72, 1986).

Includes the remix of ‘Great Southern Land’ (‘Byrralku Dhangudha’) - featuring Australian Aborigines singing the chorus in their own language - from the 1993 EP ‘Spin One’, a hard-to-find highlight here on this set.

ICEHOUSE are currently active again and have 2013 dates planned.

Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected journalist Michael Heatley (‘Record Collector’ / ‘Guitar & Bass’).

Expertly remastered. Superb sound – the best in the business!
