Denim on Ice is the second and final album by Denim. It was released in 1996. The band went on their first tour supporting Pulp on their stadium tour.[4]

The song "The Great Pub Rock Revival" jokily namechecks musician Wreckless Eric, who in retaliation penned a scathing response with his group The Hitsville House Band, entitled "Lawrence of Arabia on Ice".
