Sorry : my point is that, left to their own devices, Icon produced a body of work which is possibly the benchmark for unexciting. So if the question was is "Night of the Crime" a passable album (I used to think it was incredible but either I've changed or it has - I suspect the former and that even the benchmark for that kind of music doesn't thrill me to bits) - the answer is yes. If the question was were Icon much kop then no - I think any number of bands could have recorded NotC and probably better too. I seem to recall the only real embarrassment on the album being an Icon-only penned track "I wanna rock my radio"? Is that right - maybe not.
The best thing related to Icon may well be the Schoolboys EP they did before Icon, one track in particular (track1 side2 - title been deleted from addled brain) is a particularly fine pomp song and elsewhere they sound a little like the underrated Girl.
I really don't want to discuss SwW as even when it was released it seemed like cheesy bubblegum ... now there's a thought for the confectionary industry...
