Björk & 808 State: In Yer Glacier!

Barbara Ellen, New Musical Express, 23 March 1991

I love the smell of God's farts in the morning... It smells of Reykjavik to me! 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.
