Bjork The Discography Part 1: 1993 – 2001

Episode 31

Play episode


Leaving the Sugarcubes behind we start looking at the proper solo work of Icelandic legend, Björk.

Ewan over-labours a Radiohead analogy, Liam cries under a table, Nick definitely didn’t get drunk watching the football, and we are joined by friend of the Facebook Group and man who prepared by watching all of the Björk live DVDs in order…Jeffrey McDonald. Oh, and we are all slightly shocked by how long it took One Little Independent to change their name.

There was a huge tech issue in post-production and if you barely notice it then Ewan deserves a medal.

In this episode we discuss these records:

Debut (1993)

Post (1995)

Telegram (1996)

Homogenic (1997)

Vespertine (2001)

NOTE: This was originally intended to be released much earlier in the season so we may reference that, Yes we are still amateurs!!

DOUBLE NOTE: As mentioned we had a bunch of mess-ups post production but I think I have fixed it,

As usual there’s a Spotify playlist incorporating the podcast and selected songs which you can find at

The Guests:

Our guide for the records was Liam Moloney (@liamtmaloney), who has the rather excellent Dancing about Architecture pocast which you can find at

And he has a bandcamp full of Electronic magic over at

Jeffrey McDonald is a long-time contributor to our Facebook group and it was a pleasure to have him on

If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere on Apple or Podchaser which would help enormously. Or just tell your friends!!
