“Icehouse started out as a pub rock band called Flowers, who were the highest paid unsigned act in Australia at the time.

It was in 1980 that the band entered a recording contract with Regular Records and released their first album, Icehouse.

The cover for their debut album, which featured branches intertwined, was created by drummer, John Lloyd, who had been an art student in Melbourne.

In 1981 the band decided to change their name to Icehouse for use in the overseas market and announce it at the close of the Odd People Tour in Australia.”
