The Sugarcubes

The Sugarcubes  (Sykurmolarnir in Icelandic) were an Icelandic alternative rock band formed in 1986 and disbanded in 1992.  They received critical and popular acclaim internationally.  The members of The Sugarcubes had formerly been in a variety of Icelandic bands.  Björk had the longest career out of any of the members — she had recorded an album as early as 11 years old, and in her late teens, she joined the Icelandic post-punk band Tappi Tikarrass, who released two albums before splitting in 1983.  (More from Wikipedia)
Mel Jefferson was the engineer for the Ja Ja Ja music; he later worked with the Sugarcubes and Björk
