Icicle

Born and raised in communist Bulgaria, Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) grew up with a few tight friends who were true music maniacs. Being one of them as well, he studied and analyzed every note of the repertoire of his favourite bands (Pink Floyd, Genesis, The Police, The B-52’s, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Clash…). With a little help from his friends (and band mates) he bought his first bass guitar - a Fender Music Master. It proved to be the best investment he ever made, for it changed Krassy’s life. Following years of ardent practicing and playing in garages and clubs, the skilled musician fled from his native country and landed in Montreal one freezing-cold winter day in 1990. His brother-like peers from the band The Clouds accompanied him in this new and exiting adventure. At the time they were passionately devoted to the 90’s psychedelic rock. After many subway and club gigs, considerable magazine and newspaper coverage, and two full-length albums, the members of the band decided to explore new horizons, this time separately. In 1996 Krassy joined the band Chiwawa. Produced by Steve Whitfield (The Cure, The Mission, The Trash Can Sinatras) and recorded at The Mission’s studio in Bristol, Chiwawa’s first album The Sick World of Yona won the attention of the media. Becoming a core member of the group, Krassy composed and sang a major part of Chiwawa’s seven albums worth of material. In 2014 Icicle released his first solo album, Resurgence. Multifaceted and very seasoned, this 13-piece oeuvre represents a passage door between the past and the future, a quintessence of lessons learned and dreams that lay ahead. His second album, Theorems (2015) cemented Icicle’s broad musical path where rock, pop and funk elements stir a mixture of fresh, innovative and genre defiant sound – Icicle’s specialty.

MY CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY

As I look at the clock, it’s a quarter to four
I put on my uniform and head for the door
I stop by the bong and take a deep puff
Then I hit another cause one is not enough

Now I’m running and screaming down A1A
I pass the bus in the left hand lane 
Shout at the tourists to get out of my way
This f*cking job is driving me insane

My current speed is right at 83
Here goes my contribution to society
My current speed is right at 83
Here goes my contribution to society

Ever think that maybe I’m alive?
Then why the hell won’t you just leave a five?
I’m your prostitute not your f*cking slave
The difference is - prostitutes get paid

No, I don’t want to serve you your big fried shrimp
I’m your waiter not your f*cking gimp
Who the hell do you think you’re whistling at? 
Eat your clam strips - make you big and fat

What’s your early big special, my forks got a spot
Where’s my tartar sauce, my coffee’s not hot
Can we get a booth, can we get more bread
How ‘bout a nice fresh kick in the head

My dinner count is right at 63 
That’s my big contribution to society
My dinner count is right at 63 
That’s my big contribution to society

Ever think that maybe I’m alive?
Then why the hell won’t you just leave a five?
I’m your prostitute not your f*cking slave
The difference is - prostitutes get paid

I try to clock in but I can’t find my time card 
It was right here last night it shouldn’t be that hard
Here it is on the floor all sticky and sour
I punch in so I can make two dollars an hour
 
I pick my section, I’m stuck in the back room
Ten sauce trays to fill, got to wash my shirt soon
First table of mine is anxious to meet me
Cause they’re in a big rush and they want some sweet tea!

Next table of mine is down on vacation
They have come here from Georgia to see Disney’s great nation
They’ve got plenty of money but they need it for later
So you know that their plan is to just stiff their waiter

Last table of the night comes in right at ten
They stay until midnight and leave five percent

My dinner count is right at 43
That’s my big contribution to society
My dinner count is right at 43
That’s my big contribution to society

Ever think that maybe I’m alive?
Then why the hell won’t you just leave a five?
I’m your prostitute not your f*cking slave
The difference is - prostitutes get paid

Ever think that maybe I’m alive?
Then why the hell won’t you just leave a five?
I’m your prostitute not your f*cking slave
The difference is - prostitutes get paid
