Touring can be hard. Einar Örn devised a solution for smelly socks while on the tour bus. After a hard days work he bottled his socks in empty bottle found on the tour bus in order not to disturb his fellow band members in The Sugarcubes.
This is an example of this solution.
This item was first exhibited at the Lobster or Fame Exhibition in Reykjavik 2003
Yes, the socks are used.
The item is from the personal collection of Einar Örn and are in an edition of 3.
This is edition 2/3
After Smekkleysa was formed some of its founders realized that if we were to succeed in World Domination or Death we needed a pop band, hence The Sugarcubes.
Smekkleysa has never been run as a company for profit. Of course, that has been difficult but we have managed as once in a while we get products which have sold and that has footed the bill.
We were thinking the other day, why not auction off some of our paraphernalia and memorabilia, instead of storing it in boxes somewhere, to fund our activities.
And here we are at the point of launching an auction of these items. The auction will be ongoing as we shift through our boxes, and we have every intention of finding curiosities which desperately need new home, instead of the box. All income from the auction will go to fund Smekkleysa SM.
The auction will be ongoing as we are shifting through boxes of our past and our past pasts, i,e, even from time before Smekkleysa was established in 1986. Going way back to 1981 even.
Welcome to The Auction and we hope you stick around for joy!
