The Sugarcubes (Sykurmolarnir in Icelandic) (1986-1992) were an alternative rock group from Reykjavík, Iceland. For most of their career, the band consisted of Björk Guðmundsdóttir (vocals, keyboards), Einar Örn Benediktsson (vocals, trumpet), Þór Eldon (guitar), Bragi Ólafsson (bass), Magga Örnólfsdóttir (keyboards) and Sigtryggur Baldursson (drums). Lead singer Björk would later become an internationally successful solo musician and the best selling Icelandic musician of all time. They received critical and popular acclaim internationally.

The Sugarcubes debut album dispenses with Picasso’s despised frugality by having its sleeve printed in five acid-bright colours; as for good taste, wel. t can’t quite make its mind up about that. The creepy baby-Ballardisms of ‘Motorcrash’, one of the many infantile, surreal scenarios in Life’s Too Good’s lyrics, with a bicycling Björk chancing upon a car accident, and stealing away an injured woman to nurse in her house.
