BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

“Ice Cream Factory” was the debut solo single by Billy Mackenzie (Credited to MacKenzie Sings Orbidöig) released in October 1982. Written by fellow Dundonian, multi instrumentalist and, new collaborator Stevie Reid. Billy Mackenzie stated that “Ice Cream Factory” was a hilarious swirl of semi-surrealist fantasy that blended, in the tradition of Associates masterpieces like “A Girl Named Property”, elements of classic pop with an eccentric modernity. It was shiny, white and superb and it flopped.
