Hvalen Hvalborg SHUBIDUA ((INSTALL))



As Shu-bi-dua they quickly gained success, and the name Passport was dropped. In 1974 they released their first self-titled album Shu-bi-dua.One reason for their success was their often humorous translations of rock classics, made with great care and accuracy, and often with a refined sense of wordplays in their Danish lyrics (largely untranslatable to English). They did, however, also compose music of their own, often straightforward, with simple and catchy tunes, easy to sing, high party energy often built in - several of their hits from the 1970'es are still regular party classics today, with their laid back, energetic style. Some lyrics were intelligent, like "hvalen Hvalborg", about a deceased and stuffed whale friend. Others were simple and/or silly, like "where are the keys" (that's the song's only line), but all their songs are done with great care for detail.The group also ventured into other projects, like the movie "the red cow" (a major flop) or the Shu-Bi-40 Christmas album with reggae versions of various Christmas songs and carols, and an underlying story about the sale of the Virgin Islands (Saint Creux, Saint John and Saint Thomas) to the US, in which everybody completely forgot the little (fictitious) island of Saint Hans - which also happen to be the name of a Danish mental institution.




Hvalen hvalborg SHUBIDUA



Med tiden fik Shu-Bi-Dua mere gang i helt egne kompositioner. Selvom sangene stadig blev holdt i en munter tone med et twist af underfundighed og ordspil, blev der også plads til seriøse emner. En af de første var sangen om hvalen "Hvalborg". Inspireret af en udstoppet hval på Københavns Universitet - og måske også den hval, der i 60'erne og 70'erne blev vist frem på markedespladser rundt omkring i Danmark - forholder Shu-Bi-Dua sig til hvaldrab. Sangen blev hurtigt folkeeje, og det blev en fast gimmick ved koncerterne, at bandet blev overdænget i kiks fra publikum...en linie i sangen handler nemlig om "kiks vi havd' i lommen"... 041b061a72
