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.

THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG

When I hear demolition
Is the way to set it straight
I surrender to convulsion
And rapidly begin to faint

All these peers and magicians
They all know how it’s done
But it’s ambition for admission
That propels everyone

It is easy to be righteous
To condone and to condemn
But beware what you wish for
Before you turn into wolverine

Only life can truly teach you
How to love and how to care
How to see behind the mirror
And how to wipe the smoky glare

No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love
No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love

When you speak of revolution
Right away I sit up straight
And surrender my attention
Without an ounce of restraint

But a part of me is weary
Because I need to understand
What you nurture, what you cherish
Before you tell me I’m the man

I paid my dues and I paid my debts
Found a purpose and instilled some sense
I learned many heavy lessons
Not a single one was with regret

I need to build, create and perfect
Stand up strong, fence and protect
So, here I slant - proud and erect
Humble and direct, positively I reflect
No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love
No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love

No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love
No, no, this is not a love song
But it calls for love
