Band Name Origins:

  • They were performing in Australia as the Flowers, when they decided to tour the USA they found that there was a band already with the name Flowers. They had just released an album called Icehouse so they took that name to tour America and decided to keep it. Submitted by: Jot
  • The band originally were named Flowers. Their first album was named Icehouse. They decided to go to America and try and crack the music scene there, but a band over there already had a similar name. So to save money on reprinting records and covers with a new name they just did a reversal. The band was Icehouse and the album was Flowers. Submitted by: DJ
