Scott Roger

(Tour manager The Sugarcubes from 1988-92.)

She’s not on this planet, or from it, in the nicest possible sense. On tour she would disappear, and you wouldn’t see her again until soundcheck. Then straight after she would disappear again and turn up five minutes before the show... She once bought a pair of Adidas trainers, pre-1970’s, and wanted to get four inches added onto the sole. Trying to explain that in German was tough, but we managed it, and paid $200 just to do it. It was like that all the way. She’d spend a lot of time around NASA in Texas, buying silver jackets and astronaut food.

Björk in three words : godlike, inspirational and genius.
