Icelandic Sugarcubes

June 19, 1988

The Icelandic band the Sugarcubes was wrongly referred to as an English quintet in a caption below its photo ("Sugarcubes' Demons, Doubts and Humor," by Robert Hilburn, June 12).

As a student journalist I understand mistakes occur, and while misidentification errors like this are particularly bad, it is compounded by the fact that the band's Icelandic heritage was referred to in the article's lead, a mere two inches away from the caption. The word correction comes to mind.

It was an otherwise precise and much needed acknowledgement of a singular band.
