before the Sugarcubes

People think I did nothing in Iceland before The Sugarcubes, but me and my friends did everything ! We’d make pirate radio, attack the government, run into the TV station and take control, hold film festivals of only X-rated films, attack policemen - we were like terrorists, you know ? We were... terrible ! The Sugarcubes was just a hobby we did at weekends, singing silly pop songs.
