“Björk Gudmundsdottir was born November 21, 1965, in Reykjavik, Iceland. Before becoming a solo act — a phenomenally successful solo act, one might add — Björk was the vocalist of several bands throughout her career. In 1977, Björk recorded her first album. 2 years later, the eccentric 13-year old became a member of Exodus, and the band made an appearance on Icelandic television. It was when she formed the band Tappi Tikarass that Iceland would get to know Björk as the star act. When she was invited along with other members of the New Wave to become a ‘supergroup’ for a one-time session on radio program, Björk met her future band mates Einar Orn and Sigtryggur Baldursson.
The three formed a new group, Kukl (Icelandic for “witch”). Björk put all her creative energy in the new band, and together they released two albums, The Eye and Holidays in Europe, and went on a European tour before calling it quits in 1986. While 1986 marked the end for Kukl, it marked a new beginning for Björk and her husband, guitarist Thor Eldon, who saw the birth of their son Sindri.
1986 also saw the birth of The Sugarcubes, a new band formed by Björk, her husband and several Kukl members. In 1992, the single Hit, off the album ‘Stick Around For Joy’ was a huge success; unfortunately, the Sugarcubes did not stick around for more joy and broke up that year. On her own after having broken up with her husband, Björk moved to London with her son in 1993, ready to begin her solo career. “
