I am off to see Iva Davis tonight do the whole of the 'Primitive Man' album, how EXCITING!
GLAM!!!! UNIFORM and TROJAN BLUE!!!
Primitive Man was a brilliant album where every song could have been a single.
Trojan Blue is one of the best Icehouse tracks ever but didn't even make it as a B-Side.
It's like Real Life's Burning Blue should have been released as a single - but that's another story.
Anyhow, I imagine it would have been a great show. Was it with a full band or more solo/acoustic?
Every track on this album is perfect. You're right Guru Bob, there could have been more singles released from this album. Trojan Blue is the one song that I have played the most.
Icehouse played in Canberra on 30/10, unfortunately I couldn't go due to other commitments. . I did try to win tickets about 8 weeks ago (ie a tv ad where you had to text to win).
Jason, was this a one off concert/date where they played the full 'Primitive Man' album separate from their current tour/playlist?
I agree with everyone here Primitive Man is a brilliant album - Trojan Blue was always a stand out,such a great song. And finally got the CD the other day,had the vinyl back in the day. Not a fan of digipaks but it's not bad and love all the bonus tracks inc a 12" of Glam
Interesting that the tracklisting of the DVD doesn't mention the full clip of 'Great Southern Land'???, which is the first track.
If anybody's keen to read it, I interviewed Iva recently for the "Primitive Colours" tour. He was a great guy and a pleasure to interview ;-)

I did read it. Thank you.
