The Sugarcubes - 20th Anniversary Concert, Laugardalshöll (2006)

  • Alternative rock
  • Indie pop
  • Psychedelic rock
  • Live recording
Comment: this monumental live gig includes 20 tracks within 84 minutes by the legendary Icelandic alternative group The Sugarcubes who was the first Icelandic group reached international acclaim from the island. The collective and Bjork`s solo career might indirectly open the way for other Icelandic groups either – Sigur Ros, mùm, Mugison, Amiina if to name just some combos among others. Although I am being Bjork`s fan for many years my experiences with The Sugarcubes have not been so pleasant and expected because of chiming a little bit monotonous and annoying in longer time spans. On the other side, Kukl was far more sympathetic thanks to their more avant-garde approach in music and concept. In true, in live they used to sound remarkably better mostly due to Bjork and Einar Örn Benediktsson`s erratic and tumultuous singing manner. The best moment is presented in midway – A Day Called Zero is a gravity-lost jazz-y wonder.
