Life's Too Good (hmv Exclusive) The 1921 Centenary Edition Clear Vinyl

£27.99

Released: 27th August 2022. Life's Too Good (hmv Exclusive) The 1921 Centenary Edition Clear Vinyl 2021 marked a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, with July 24 seeing us celebrate our 100th birthday, in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you... As part of our continuing birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce this year's additions to our 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday June 18th and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone! Life's Too Good is the debut studio album by Icelandic alternative rock group The Sugarcubes. It was released in April 1988 by One Little Indian in the UK and Europe and in May 1988 by Elektra Records in the US. The album was an unexpected success and brought international attention for the band, especially to lead singer Björk, who would launch a successful solo career in 1993. Consisting of veterans of Reykjavík's early 1980s rock culture, the band took elements of the post-punk sound that characterized the scene, intending to create a humorous take on pop music's optimism, which is reflected in the album's title. Despite never having intended to be taken seriously, and because of the success of their debut and their contractual obligations, the Sugarcubes went on to release two further studio albums.
