Kukl is amazing, even to this day. In 2009 Kukl is probably best known for being the first notable band that Bjork was in, not for being the incredible sonic experiment that they were recognized for in the '80s. Back in the day, this band toured with Crass and Flux Of Pink Indians, and played with Chumbawumba when they were cool. They are my favorite of the "anarcho-punk" movement, perhaps because I am such a sucker for Bjork's voice.
Most of the members went on to form The Sugarcubes, and you can hear a lot of Sugarcubes in the music on "The Eye," and you can certainly hear the foundation for the experimental pop that Bjork performs now.
"The Eye" was influenced by Georges Bataille's book "The Story Of The Eye," which at the time was reported to be Bjork's favorite book. Incidentally, it is one of my favorites as well. This album was released in 1984 on Crass Records.
This is an unforgettable album, that always reminds me how cool Bjork is. This makes me forgive her for the instantly forgettable and perhaps even regrettable album "Volta."
