What is it with Texas and Bjork? My squeeze down in Austin is a HUGE Bjork fan. I thought her Athens Olympics performance was nice, but I haven't seen much else that really turns me on (except said squeeze, of course).
Certainly! I got my hands on a copy of "Immature" eons ago, ever since I've liked her music. Of course, as with every artist, there's some better and some so-so stuff, but in general she's contributed much to my liking of Icelandic music.
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.
"Bush has been noted as an influence and inspiration by artists as diverse as Tori Amos (who has covered "Running up that Hill" and "And Dream Of Sheep" in live performances), Antony and the Johnsons, Lily Allen, Fiona Apple, Pat Benatar, Cristina Donà, (who covered "Wuthering Heights), Björk (who, in 2005 wrote an article for fashion magazine I.D. about Bush as an influence)"

Quoting N1120A (Reply 18): Ok, now this is one I would have never expected. Mr. Sig Sauer a Bjork fan.
Heh heh heh....you might just be surprised. Then again, after what we discussed that night on the drive to WalMart in BHM, maybe you wouldn't!
I always thought that some kind of collaborative effort between Björk and Morrissey would have produced some unbelieveable results, but I think Morrissey's ego would have gotten in the way of their true potential. Can you imagine the cutting-edge upbeat force of Björk's material mixed with the darker but grippingly realistic lyrics and musical tone that Morrissey always seemed to deliver? Wow.

As an aside, I totally love Iceland since we went on holiday there three years ago. That holiday is still top of my list of great holidays.
The way Icelandic names work is just so cute, but I have read that it can cause issues when travelling to the US because a family of four (father, mother, son and daughter) will all have different "surnames".
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana!
: See, here's what I am talking about. Is it just me or does anybody else see some incredible potential after watching these two clips: Björk - "Human
: Don't agree with you at all. maybe not conventional beauty, whatever the hell that is, but quite an interesting face.
: I take that back now. I just found a project with Morrissey and another of my favorites (hold on to your hat N1120A) Siouxsie (...and the Banshees).
