Went to see the Sugarcubes yesterday. This was their first reunion since they broke up in 1992. I had a great time, especially since the Sugarcubes were obviously having the time of their lives. Björk was bouncing around and dancing, and exchanging smiles with Einar Örn. Sigtryggur, the drummer, was as amazing as always. Bragi, the bass player, got a bit of a solo in the encore, and seemed to enjoy himself. Great concert.

Múm played support. I liked what they were doing, but thought the singers were a bit over the top though. I guess they were mainly not used to performing to such a big crowd.

Rass also supported. They are a very hard punk-rock band and played some exceedingly good, and supremely short political songs. I liked them better than Múm actually.

Afterwards we met up with Mummi, my brother, and Marta, his girlfriend. They came home for some tea (honest!) and a chat.
