Bjork Is Dazed & Confused August 2011

  • Pin it

This is a great way to celebrate! Dazed and Confused reached its 200th published issue and having Bjork as a guest editor and covergirl is celebratory enough to make my head spin.

I’ve rarely seen a more unique performer than Bjork. She truly is one of a kind and amazing at what she does. Did you know she has a new album and tht she’s already touring the world promoting it? Called Biophilia, the album was inspired by a handful of musicologists, designers but also programmers and scientists. How do you like the Sam Falls photographed cover of Bjork as styled by Katy England? (Dazed)

I like it. It reminds on the early days of Dazed&Confused. How I loved that magazine and Björk is still special. I also was a fan from the band she started with: Sugarcubes. A pity Lars von Trier drove her into a depression and she quited acting immediately. Even her acting skills are worthy to mention. :)

“she quited acting immediately”… that was the most sad, utterly depressing movie I ever saw.
Her talent has no bounds. She is divinely gifted.

Yes I heard that film that she starred in was brutally sad and very moving. She gave up acting because it really wounded her spirit
and nothing is worth that.

Fantastic cover – finally a real artist who showcases a unique talent that doesn’t include neverending personal tidbits & not wearing pants!
Yes – The Sugarcubes were superb. I luved them back in the day.

Ellington and mdinah: oh, I came out of of the cinema depressed myself and re-watched the film later on tv and got depressed again..and not a Xanax around….;)
But Björk showed great acting despite her mood. Bravo!

keiko: ah nice to read another Sugarcubes fan. They were something really special back then. I was kinda sad when they split up but that’s life :)

Life’s too Good was a great album. I have fun memories of the late eighties (yikes) & The Sugarcubes was like the soundtrack to one door closing & another opening! I think I may go & play a few tunes on my ipod…bye!

I haven’t seen the movie… I try to stay away from dramas. It brings me down and I’m not too good at dealing with depressing moments. So I tend to flee from them. Hide beneath thick layers of romcoms and funny TV series. However, Bjork’s musical genius is indisputable and her music rocked my youth. I still think It’s so quiet is one of the best songs ever written and performed (see, it’s a happy one ;) I couldn’t go for a gloomy one)!

“Hide beneath thick layers of romcoms and funny TV series. ” you are so right.
