Video: Icehouse performs 1980 debut ‘Flowers’ at Australia’s Homebake festival

On Dec. 3 last year, Iva Davies led the current incarnation of Icehouse through selections from the group’s 1980 debut Flowers at the Homebake 2011 festival in the band’s native Australia. Six months later, superb-quality video has emerged of the hour-long set. The debut album first was released under the band’s original name, Flowers, and titled Icehouse; when it was issued intentionally the next year, Davies swapped the names over a conflict with a Scottish band, re-christening the band Icehouse and the album Flowers.

While the appearance was billed as “Icehouse Plays Flowers,” is wasn’t quite a full performance of the album, or in order, as you can see from the setlist below. Plus, fans were treated to covers of Iggy Pop’s “Funtime” and T. Rex’s “Get It On.”

1. “Icehouse”

    “… Davies swapped the names over a conflict with a Scottish band, re-christening the band Icehouse and the album Flowers.”

    this is not correct. the band was renamed from Flowers to Icehouse, but the name of their first album continued to be Icehouse.
