The Good The Bad and The Zugly (2018)
16 February 2018
Misanthropical House is the title of the third album from Norwegian Hadeland-hardcore act The Good The Bad and the Zugly. The album was 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 commented about the album: “Misanthropical House is a very emotional album. It reflects the Norwegian way of life and the 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: Hemorrhoids, fungus, obesity, hair loss, moderate depressions and hangovers of course. What else can you expect?"
As if this wasn’t enough, Little Steven, who accidentally 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.
As on the first two albums, the artwork is by Norwegian artist Flu Hartberg, famed for his satirical illustrations.
Misanthropical House will be released on February 16th 2018.
