3/5/17 – The Sugarcubes – Birthday – 1987

Lead singer Björk was a sensation with unique vocals, looks and demeanour, it was […]


14/7/16 – Björk – Debut – 1993/ Human Behaviour/ Venus As A Boy – Videos – 1993

One might claim that the reason why we know about the music of Iceland is because of Björk via the Sugarcubes.

One of the tracks on Björk’s new album, Vulnicura is co-produced with Björk and Arca by the mysteriously named, The Haxan Cloak – it is eight minutes and two seconds long. This clip is an advertisment for the record – arty, experimental and using imagery and film techniques that do more than merely turn water into wine. […]
