Björk & 808 State: In Yer Glacier!

Barbara Ellen, New Musical Express, 23 March 1991

Deep in the Icelandic countryside, surrounded by vile-smelling sulphur springs, 808 STATE and BJÖRK are cementing their union as dance music's unlikeliest collaborators. BARBARA ELLEN braves the stench and the Scandinavian boredom.
