B-Side From the Sugarcubes

This song is taken from a promo U.S. 12" of the "Motorcrash" single, circa 1988. On the surface, pretty unspectacular. DJ cover (see above) with no information whatsoever. The A-side is taken straight from the 'Life's Too Good' album. It's two minutes of heaven, to be sure, but I like my 12" singles to be extended. The only reason I picked it up was to hear the live version on the flipside. This is Exhibit A in my argument that the Sugarcubes were pretty damn good on stage. Yes, this piece of vinyl was well worth the $1.99 I paid for it.

The only time I got to see them on a stage (and it was a large stage! opening for New Order), Bjork sat on the stage and refused to perform because she felt the audience weren't "into it".
Awesome blog, btw!

Wow, Grebo Guru, a Sugarcubes/New Order show sounds like a dream to me, but what a diva move by Bjork! Wonder what Peter Hook thought about that? Thanks for commenting. Stop by again when you can.
