Sugarcubes To Reunite for One-Off Show

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
And you thought it would be somewhere near you, didn't you? You were hoping, praying, even offering sacrifices to the Bjork shrine in your home that you'd be able to see it. And you'd be that lucky if you were living in Iceland.

The Sugarcubes are gettin' the band back together to celebrate it's 20th anniversary of the release of their first single, Birthday, on November 17th. They'll be playing in Reykjavik, so maybe you could fly out for the Iceland Airwaves Festival on October 18th-22nd and stay for a month of Icelandic fun. I've heard the sulfur springs are worth the trip alone.

Here's what the band announced on the Bjork.com web site:

"Nearly 20 years ago The Sugarcubes put out on their own label Smekkleysa SM, their first single Birthday. This release was the start to the splendid career of The Sugarcubes, and impressive releases of Icelandic artists in Iceland and abroad alike. These first steps made by The Sugarcubes have made and everlasting impact and influence on the Icelandic export of music.

It is therefore with unbound joy we announce the 20th anniversary concert of Birthday and The Sugarcubes in Reykjavik on the 17th of November. The Sugarcubes will take to the stage for the first time in 14 years.

All profit from the concert goes back into Smekkleysa SM who will continue to work on a non-profit basis for the future betterment of Icelandic music and artists.

World domination or death! yes thank you!"
