The Good The Bad And The Zugly announce new album: Misanthropical HouseNovember 23rd, 2017
The Good the Bad and the Zugly (or GBZ) is probably Norway’s best kept punk rock secret. Truly the bastard child of the 90s scene in Oslo, these young men carry the torch of Turbonegro, Gluecifer and Anal Babes and remind us of a time when punk rock was a promise of infantile nihilism and pure vicious fun!
Misanthropical house is the title of the third album from norwegian Hadeland-hardcore act The Good The Bad and the Zugly.
It is recorded by the band themselves at Toproom studio and mixed and produced by Anders Nordengen at Nabolaget, Oslo. Ruben Willem (previously in Haust) has done the mastering.
The band offers a little introduction to the album:
“Misanthropical House is a very emotional album. It reflects 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!”
Nevertheless, GBZ keep smiling. 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.”
As on the first two albums, the artwork is by norwegian artist Flu Hartberg, famed for his satirical illustrations.
