WHERE ARE THEY NOW - Marco Abularach/The Icemen

Marco Abularach Founded the band The Icemen in 1982

In March 2011 Marco had this to say about his life now:

My life has taken many twists and turns in continual pursuit of art and expression. From art school and working as an illustrator to music of course, and eventually acting and writing.

A career in cinema evolved with a small character role in Vin Diesel's first independent feature film "Strays" which went to Sundance Film Festival in 1997 and after that he encouraged me to come out to Hollywood and write for him. Wrote a couple of original screenplays for his production company "One Race Films" which have yet to be produced.

Also have done re-writes on some of his bigger commercial films and although we still collaborate I have been writing freelance since 2008 and the majority of my work is "ghostwriting"- rewrites on Hollywood films. I also continue to develop my own feature screenplays which I plan to eventually bring to life.

I am grateful to finally be able to immerse myself completely in art, no more side jobs - and that is truly fulfilling.
Recently have managed to find a little time to revisit The Icemen and hope to cast some ice-magic in the future."

i know next to nothing about this band. were they sxe?

Jim Pitts said...

The Icemen weren't SxE, they were just a NYHC band that had Mackie from the Cro Mags on drums.

A funny dig on his car and a question about straight edge. Narrow focused doublecross readers never let me down.

Seriously-- Posing with the mercedes is very West Coast. Too much gangsta rap or Vin Diesel movies.

The Icemen were a great band- with Mackie on Drums and Carl the Mosher (find his demos with Underdog to give you a new view of the band) and a guy that looked like Mario van Peebles. Sure they only had 4 good songs but they were good but fell victim to high school bull shit.

Oh yes-- and don't let me forget Mario- he rocked also

I don't know him. But if he is breaking balls by posing on that Benz, that is pretty funny.

"We're The Icemen, cause it's a cold fuckin world out there.. and I gotta live in it everyday"..
Loved The Icemen, Mackie was a great fit for that band. Bass player was Noah. They played on some great matinees and a few superbowls if I remember correctly. Wish someone would put out a full discography of theirs..

Van Peebles is Noah Evans and he produced some great records.

Either one of the above posts can be correct.
