Band member Rory Atwell has also stated that the first song on the album, Your Biggest Mistake, is about the film. For Screening Purposes Only Q&A.
Test Icicles' debut (and since they recently called it quits, last) album is a frantic blend of experimental, post-hardcore, punk and noise pop. Weird, is the first word that came to mind when I put For Screening Purposes Only into my computer. The album is a (nearly) non-stop barrage of sound to the ears. All in all For Screening Purposes Only is a good CD. Different and smart, two things the music industry (well the pop industry) lacks.
Summary: This debut (and, it turns out, final album) from the noisy London trio was produced by James Ford (Simian). Record Label: Domino. Genre(s): Indie, Rock.

Test Icicles take hardcore punk, doom metal, hip-hop, funk, avant pop and 400bpm gabba, and squish those forms into new, enthralling shapes. Cynics will say they sound like a band lost, without an idea of what they want to be, but like all pop pioneers – including The Beatles before their pan-generational beatification – they’re asking questions of who they want to be with every song on the record, never putting a roof on their ambitions.
