The Icons were Tom Dyer's Seattle rock band in the '80's. They liked to rock, but were not very popular. They recorded some songs that were released by Tom on a cassette on Green Monkey Records after the band broke up. When Tom started up GMR again in 2009, he did a reunion show with the band and they decided to make a new record. First Dyer remixed their original cassette album, Masters of Disaster, and added a few songs. They next recorded Appointment With Destiny!, which got some decent reviews. They have been silent since.
