LHOOQ was an electro trip-hop band from Iceland. The band is named after a work of art by Marcel Duchamp. In 1919, Marcel Duchamp drew a moustache & goatee with a pencil on a post card reproduction of Leonardo's Mona Lisa. He named his work "L.H.O.O.Q." This, when read aloud in French, gives "Elle a chaud au cul", which means something like "She has a hot ass."
This is some smooth trip-hop in the Morcheeba or Olive vein with sexy vocals by Sara.
"A Day Lasts Forever", "BEM", & the instrumental "Peeping Tom" are particularly good.
LHOOQ are: Sara Guðmundsdóttir – vocals; Pétur Hallgrímsson – guitar; Guðni Finnsson - bass guitar; Jóhann Jóhannsson – keyboard; & Arnar Geir Ómarsson - percusion. They issued only one EP called I Don't Want to Know (Bogus) & this album called LHOOQ in 1998.
LHOOQ – LHOOQ, Echo – ECHLP 22, 1998.
