Album

Gay Icon - The Bear Quartet. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. In a fashion typical to Bear Quartet's ever re-inventive state, Gay Icon shifts inside nine minutes from spare and queasy piano balladry to effervescent, '60s-inspired pop attired in tingly guitars and vintage organs. This opening salvo is followed by one of the best song titles ever, Fuck Your Slow Songs, that encourages haters to do as much. Bear Quartet seem to be about accessibility on the surface. The Bear Quartet is an indie rock group from Luleå in northern Sweden. They have been playing since 1989 and have been making records at a steady rate since 1992, often to critical acclaim but never resulting in large sales. The Bear Quartet are Mattias Alkberg on vocals and guitar, Jari Haapalainen on guitar, Peter Nuottaniemi on bass guitar, Jejo Perkovic on drums and Carl Olsson on keyboards. Peter and Mattias write the lyrics, while Mattias, Jari and Carl write the music. Gay Icon. The Bear Quartet. Released 2001. Gay Icon Tracklist. Load It Lyrics. Fuck Your Slow Songs Lyrics.
