One of Australia’s favourite power pop bands, Icecream Hands comprised of singer/guitarist Charles Jenkins, guitarist Dominic Larizza, bassist Douglas Lee Robertson and drummer Derek Smiley.
Debuting in late 1992 with a self-titled EP, the group issued their first full-length release ‘Travelling…Made Easy’ a year later. After 1994’s Supermarket Scene EP, Ice Cream Hands issued another stop-gap single release, Olive, before finally resurfacing with their sophomore LP, Memory Lane Traffic Jam, in 1997. This was followed by a further 3 albums, one of which included the 1999 critically acclaimed, ARIA Award nominated ‘Sweeter Than The Radio’. Featuring favourites ‘Nipple’, ‘Dodgy’ and ‘Yellow & Blue’, this was by far Icecream Hands’ biggest album of their career.
After the release of their album ‘Good China’ in 2007, Icecream Hands put down the tools having notched up 6 albums, 2 ARIA nominations, countless miles and many memorable shows. Frontman and songwriter Charles Jenkins continued to delight new and old fans alike with 6 acclaimed albums, both as a solo performer and with his band The Zhivagos.
Now, 20 years after it’s original release, the iconic Australian power pop band Icecream Hands are set to release a remastered version of their most popular album Sweeter Than The Radio in early 2019. Charles, Derek G Smiley and Douglas Lee Robertson will also come together to play a handful of shows to celebrate the album’s anniversary.
