Reykjavík maverick Henrik Björnsson is due to release ‘Good Sick Fun’, his eleventh album under the Singapore Sling project, on September 25th via Fuzz Club Inspired by goth-rock, dub and big-band jazz on top of the usual fuzzed-out rock’n’roll touchstones that are seared into Henrik’s work, the latest Singapore Sling full-length is as perversely hedonistic as they come – and that’s not without competition by any means.
An invitation to “rejoice in doing wrong”, in Henrik’s own words, ‘Good Sick Fun’ is the latest morbid and characteristically-depraved addition to a back-catalogue spanning nearly two decades from the cult Icelandic band. Arriving off the back of the 2019 ‘Killer Classics’ LP, Henrik says of the new album: “Old rock´n´roll is the main influence on this record, as on most of my records. When I release a record it means rock´n´roll has saved my life, my mind and my soul once again. And it does that quite frequently. Sometimes I start running astray, getting sucked into pointless garbage and thinking it actually matters. Then I realize that it´s absolute garbage and that nothing matters but rock´n´roll so I go and make a record instead.”
