Bjork and Sugarcubes Reunite for Anniversary
Bjork, below, will rejoin her old band, the Sugarcubes, to commemorate its 20th anniversary with a concert in Reykjavik, Iceland, on Nov. 17, the BBC reported. Proceeds from the reunion will benefit the band’s record label, Bad Taste, one of the most important in Iceland, which releases albums by other bands, including Sigur Ros and Gus Gus. Bjork said on her Web site, bjork.com, that the money would allow the company ”to continue to work on a nonprofit basis for the future betterment of Icelandic music.” The Sugarcubes had the top single in Britain, ”Hit,” in 1992 but dissolved soon after, when Bjork left to pursue her solo career.
