Music Mondays: The Sugarcubes – Traitor

Before Bjork was known for being Bjork, she was a co-singer for the band The Sugarcubes. Even then, she stood out as what made the band worth listening to. For me, the songs were all little bazaar delights. Bjork has a way of making dissonance feel like a hug. Birthday felt like the songs I was warned about, seductive, entrancing, and lots of twisted.  In 1989, I got to see them live at what was once called Irvine Meadows. They opened up for PIL and New Order.  It was the very first big name concert I ever saw.
