I love the guitar/bass in this one on basically all tracks because there are so many little licks in them! Adds lots of depth to the songs. The voice fits the theme perfectly and drums are also cool... I guess :D Sorry, have to re-listen again. The guitar and bass licks always draw my ears attention away from everything else ^^
Even though Death By Unga Bunga are still considered to be fairly young men, they’re actually celebrating their ten year anniversary as a band in 2018. Rock band, to be precise. To commemorate this, they are releasing their fifth album, «So Far So Good So Cool». A title that summarizes their career so far pretty good.
2016 was a prolific year for the band, resulting in three releases. Firstly, they released their fourth album, «Pineapple Pizza», then a remastered edition of their debut album, «Juvenile Jungle», for the first time on vinyl, before they wrapped up the year with four brand new songs on the EP «Fight». After all of this, you might think that the boys in DBUB would slow down the pace a bit. But alas.
While 2016 was prolific, 2017 was an intensely active year. The band has of course toured all over Scandinavia, both clubs and festivals. Additionally, they also toured in the UK, Germany and Benelux and in March, they went on their first headliner tour in the US, which took them from New York in the east to California in the west. A milestone, for sure, but their US adventure didn’t stop there. In September, they joined punk rock legends Stiff Little Fingers as supporting act on their 40th Anniversary Tour, playing close to 20 concerts from coast to coast. By year end 2017, Death By Unga Bunga had played a total of 34 concerts on the American continent. Impressive.
On the heels of their foreign exploits, DBUB released the singles «Bye Bye» and «Into the Night» late in 2017. The upcoming singles, the huge anthem «Soldier» and the über-cool «Cynical» further showcases the band’s songwriting panache – with clever hooks, and dumb/smart lyrics – amping up the expectations for the forthcoming album. Jansen Records are therefore proud to announce that their fifth album will be released on April 6th. Also, this time they produced the al-bum themselves, giving it a more personal touch. Furthermore, the riffs are catchier, the solos are wilder and the songs are faster, louder and funnier than ever. Death By Unga Bunga epitomize everything that’s fun and great about rock ‘n’ roll, so we’ll end this by saying: welcome to the rock show! Enjoy.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR, easily.
effortlessly on a par with X's vintage catalogue, "Alphabetland" is a solid testimony of a band as vibrant, creative and urgent as ever. Honestly, it's THAT good. Strongly recommended. ramblinerikk
