ooh the controversy...
CCP occupation ftw.
'Another wrote: "Why do western stars give a shit about Tibet. Isn't Tibet ours?!
Mind your own business!'
couldn't really be any more apt...
and i don't think mark bell or matmos have ever been called 'hot' producers.
just good ones. timbaland was only on 3 or 4 tracks from volta anyway.
and they do a lot more than 'lay down some beats'.
i like the sugarcubes too, but they're two completely different beasts. almost like saying jonny greenwood's orchestral works are better than radiohead.
but it's all subjective isn't it?!
i've no idea why she left the sugarcubes, but it was probably because of why anyone leaves a band- because they just weren't feeling it anymore.
i kind of agree about the videos thing (although cunningham has yet to do one for her) a lot of kids do tend to go nuts for her just for the weird videos, but that's no bad thing really.
she does have a huge entourage on stage anyway doesn't she? i saw her on jools holland and she loads of people with her! including that splooge worthy reactable...
said the man in the orthopedic shoes
Nonsense. The videos are merely a reflection of her creativity and ability to work with other people of a like-mind. It's no coincedence that Cunningham, Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry all worked with Bjork early in their careers and were allowed a free reign to produce something remarkable, and were no doubt inspired by her brilliant music. The latter two have gone on to make amazing films. Try making a decent music video for a shit song that's void of ideas and you'll see it ain't so easy.
The same goes for the producers, musicians and vocalists she works with. The fact is her music is groundbreaking, her voice is incredible and one of a kind, and her lyrics and delivery are full of raw, honest emotion. Also they are simply very good tunes.
Codswallop, I'm afraid your attitude is simply one of snobbery and faux superiority because you're so pleased with yourself for having heard of the sugarcubes and then assume no-one else has when a lot of us clearly have. The fact is her solo work is just as good if not better than what she did with the sugarcubes.
Bjork is nothing without Einar shouting about lobsters.
a fucking genius. She can shout what the hell she likes. And Tibet should be freed, so no worries there anyway.
Kylie's reasonably fun and catchy, Bjork's a goddess. End. Of.
and this didn't happen
Bjork said: “I would like to put importance on that I am not a politician, I am first and last a musician and as such I feel my duty to try to express the whole range of human emotions.
“The urge for declaring independence is just one of them but an important one that we all feel at some times in our lives. This song (which appears on the star's 2007 album 'Volta') was written more with the personal in mind but the fact that it has translated to its broadest meaning, the struggle of a suppressed nation, gives me much pleasure.
“I would like to wish all individuals and nations good luck in their battle for independence. Justice! Warmth, Bjork.”
..... throw up?
as in physicaly sick up a bit??
if she didn't really do it she just makes them feel a bit dizzy.
but in Guildford.
"She hasnt done anything worth bothering with since 'Here today tomorrow next week'.
She's just a jobbing songstress, no better than Kylie Minogue."
You sir, are a fool.
