FIRST PICTURES / The Sugarcubes: Life's Too Good coloured vinyl

front_noseal

The Sugarcubes‘ debut album has just been reissued as a limited edition fluorescent green vinyl.

The Icelandic band had what used to be called an ‘indie hit’ in October 1987 with Birthday (thanks to much attention from the UK press and John Peel) and the album followed in Spring 1988.

One Little Indian released the album in the UK (Björk remains with them to this day) and the label continue their recent spate of coloured vinyl releases. This is an improvement on some of the solo albums that were reissued in March, although like those, this not 180g vinyl but 140g. That’s not really a big issue and our pressing was flat and clean.

The best thing is that the repro on the artwork is excellent. This looks great and very vibrant, with the top-loading green sleeve housing the orange inner-sleeve and the yellowy-green vinyl record. This also comes with a download card for MP3s.

This limited edition pressing of Life’s Too Good is out now.

    Life’s Too Good, surely?

  2. Straker says:

    Title needs amending – “Life’s Too Good”, not Lifes Too Short.

    Looks fantastic, remember them popping up on the Chart Show for the first time, very sharp group of people

  4. Gareth says:

    Pressing quality the same as the dreadful Bjork reissues or actually decent?

  5. andy Stone says:

    Anyone know if its a remaster? I have the original so not sure whether to double up.

    Always been a fan of the artwork of Paul White. Love this cover.

    picked this up in one of those new fangled record shops they have these days yesterday (Diverse Records in Newport) and it looks and plays lovely

  8. Paul English says:

    I remember the original LP came in FIVE different coloured sleeves. I know somebody who bought all of them.

    Me – I was happy buying all five 12″s of Heaven 17’s 1985 masterpiece . . . And That’s No Lie.

    Looks fantastic! The question is, since the ‘Cubes were such a short-lived thing, why not just the complete LP set? Still, I’d consider getting this!
