Singer Bjork to rejoin Sugarcubes (For One Concert)

The band were formed on the day Bjork's son was born in 1986
Pop star Bjork is to rejoin her former bandmates in The Sugarcubes for a one-off concert in Iceland.

The gig in November will mark the group's 20th anniversary, according to a statement on the singer's website.

The Sugarcubes became darlings of the music press after they formed in 1986, and had a top 20 single in the UK with Hit in 1992.

But the band split soon after when Bjork left to pursue her successful solo career.

Her solo album, Debut, spawned five hit singles and earned the singer two Brit awards.

She has gone on to record four more albums, as well as two film soundtracks, and performed at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Profits from the Sugarcubes reunion concert will go to the band's own record label, Bad Taste.

It is one of the most important labels in Iceland, releasing albums by other renowned bands such as Sigur Ros and Gus Gus.

A statement on Bjork's website said the money would allow the company to "continue to work on a non-profit basis for the future betterment of Icelandic music".

Let's hope we get a concert DVD out of it.

I dug (and still enjoy) Life's Too Good....

I am so incredibly jealous of anyone who gets to see this. 'Life's Too Good!' and 'Stick Around For Joy' are two of my favorite albums. ['Here Today Tomorrow Next Week' definately has it's moments - I adore 'Regina' - but it's nowhere near as good as the other two.]

I'm sure we'll get some kind of record of it - especially considering Bjork's love for releasing anything and everything lately. [Except for the two things I really want - the massive singles boxset and a DVD from the "Greatest Hits" tour.]

Wow! My intro to Bjork/The Sugarcubes was the video for "HIT" from the "Stick around for Joy" cd.

I'm also hoping for a concert dvd.

Apparently Einar has said that there will be no recording - a truly one shot deal.
