NHT087: THE SUGARCUBES – Water
Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Icelands THE SUGARCUBES, like the country itself, were certainly unique and intriguing.
Fronted by the mysterious Bjork, they took the alternative music world by storm with their debut single Birthday and accompanying album.
They were only with us for a short while, releasing just three albums but they did themselves and their country proud.
Altogether different to what we traditionally term as world music, THE SUGARCUBES did make the music world stand up and notice that incredible music could come from anywhere.
A superb achievement and many a band owe them a debt of gratitude.
I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Cheers, Andrew Muecke
