Norwegian punk for Róisín Dubh
“HONNINGBARNA ARE so good they could have been genetically modified to be the voice of a modern punk generation,” according to The Fly.
Honningbarna, the explosive Norwegian punk band which boast a lead singer playing a cello, play Strange Brew at the Róisín Dubh tonight at 9pm.
The Quietus said: “Frontman Edward Valberg is a convulsive mixture of Paul Weller and Ian Curtis. Even from behind his band’s gimmick, a cello, he screams with a righteous, bug-eyed fury.”
Honningbarna are also a politically motivated band. They refuse to sing in English and gained notoriety by persuading a politically and religiously conservative audience to sing along to their song ‘Fri Palestina’ (Free Palestine).
The band released their new album Verden En Enkel earlier this year and have won a Spellemann Award, the Norwegian equivalent of a Grammy.
Admission is free.
