Misanthropical house, the Norwegian grammy winning third album from Norwegian Hadeland-hardcore act The Good The Bad and the Zugly is back on its 4th pressing, this time on recycled vinyl limited to 500x.
The band offers a little introduction to the album:
"Misanthropical House is a very emotional album. It reflects the the norwegian way of life and hodge-podge of values we share, most often taking the form of complaining and whining. GBZ want whining back in punk! You see, there's no end to the bodily decay we're facing as the band members are approaching middle age: Hemoroids, fungus, obesity, hairloss, moderate depressions and hangovers of course. What else can you expect? As if this wasn't enough, Little Steven, who accidently stumbled across the band playing at their local bar, Last Train, declared: "It's the worst band I've seen in Norway! No doubt! Probably the worst band in the world!" But GBZ smile nevertheless. A fake smile of course. But that's how the conservatives won the election in Norway, so no doubt, this will be a success! There is a lot of money and a lot of friends in fake smiles."
Recorded by the band themselves at Toproom Studio with technician Børge Finstad. Mixed and produced by Anders Nordengen at Nabolaget Studio. Mastered by Ruben Willem. Artwork by Flu Hartberg.
