The Jim & Anto Show: Lockdown Radio has become almost regular at this point, and we are having fun doing it. Today we discussed schooling under lockdown, re-wilding bears and wolves in Trentino, creativity, American candy, and more.
The band received critical and popular acclaim internationally. Their debut studio album, Life’s Too Good, was released in April 1988 to unexpected international success. It is credited as the first Icelandic album to have a worldwide impact and is considered a definite influence on all subsequent Icelandic popular music.
It was not a very well contextualized #vinylcast given the Jim & Anto show ran long, and I did not even do the basics of reading the Wikipedia article, cause if I had I would have known Bjork was in bands since she was 11! But that’s what happens when you are an amateur and you are scrambling for lunch between sides, but it was a real fun day on the #ds106radio.
As a 16 year old on Long Island, the perverse European artsiness of this album was not lost on me. I never looked at circumcision, cats or birthdays the same way again! #ds106radio pic.twitter.com/V5e2eOKGtT— Jim Groom (@jimgroom) April 3, 2020
