Icelandic group formed in Reykjavík September 1981, Tappi Tíkarrass was a short-lived project that is perhaps best known as being the first serious music project of now-renowned singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir (aka Björk, who was only in her mid teens at the time). Coming out of the punk rock movement Tappi Tíkarrass combined also elements of funk, disco and jazz. The band's name is Icelandic for "Cork The Bitch's Arse", but they recorded just an album plus an EP, both together in this link here below. They started in 1981 and disbanded in 1983, meanwhile Björk played also in her other band KUKL.

KUKL was formed in August 1983 when Ásmundur Jónsson from Gramm Records wanted to create an avant-garde / punk supergroup to perform on the final episode of a radio show called Áfangar. He assembled Björk Guðmundsdóttir, vocalist of Tappi Tíkarrass; Einar Örn Benediktsson, a trumpeter and vocalist in Purrkur Pillnikk; keyboardist Einar Arnaldur Melax, from the surrealistic group Medúsa; Birgir Mogensen, the bassist from Spilafífl; and finally drummer Sigtryggur Baldursson and guitar player Guðlaugur Kristinn Óttarsson (a.k.a. Godkrist), both from the band Þeyr.    KUKL's first live show was on Reykjavík on the September 20, 1983 opening for Crass. They soon after put out their first release, a single for the song Söngull b/w "Pökn (fyrir Byrjendur)". "Söngull" is the Icelandic version of "Dismembered", a song which would later appear in English on a later album.
