THE ICARUS LINE @ THE ECHO | L.A. RECORD

Try to think of terms that say rock and roll band: danger, sleeze, sex, charisma, Ike Turner, Stooges, hipshake…knife fight? The Icarus Line has it all in spades. Having them pop up every few months on the live radar is like a big game of duck duck goose: band, band, band, band, BAND, band, band. Their sets are invariably thrilling, their songs original and, after over a decade, they continue to produce fresh and vital material: their set at the Echo to close out The Bixby Knolls’ residency included a couple old gems mixed in with material from the TWO albums they are releasing later this year-one in August on Roarscratch and one in the fall with their partners of legend, Buddyhead. I have said it for years and it remains true, The Icarus Line is the best rock and roll band in this city. —Ward Robinson
