Bjork's First Album

Bjork.jpgWFMU has dredged up a special treat for fans of Iceland's highest profile pop star, Björk Gudmundsdóttir - an album recorded by her when she was 12 years old. On it, she not only sings in a manner that gives early indications of the vocal histrionics that are to follow, but she plays flute (cf this tribute to Icelandic painter Johannes Kjarvel)

Musically, its mostly tragic hippie disco, but it does include a cutely clunky Icelandic language version of the Beatles' Fool On The Hill.

One for Bjork completists.
