    Thought some of you might find this at least vaguely interesting:

    All members of Icarus were huge fans of Marvel Comics, hence the basic concept of this LP. As you can see from the track list, each title is based on a marvel character. Sadly at the time, the head of Marvel found out about this shortly before release and demanded a 50% share of the royalties. Instead of giving in, the record company simply withdrew the LP. Several copies of the originals slipped out of course.


    You can download the album and all art at this blog.

    Seems you're the only person who is interested. I'd start by following the link, the one that says "You can download the album..."

    So far so good. Really quite fucked up. Sounds like funk, then come the Marvel references... My brain split into little bloody segments and I feel really confused. I will give it a full listen tomorrow. I think this is incredible though, really. Fantastic Four is my favorite so far... the Skrull references... so so timely.
