missing London

You lived in London for a large part of the ’90s. Do you ever miss it ?

Definitely. I miss the music, the people and the feeling of acceptance. When I was a teenager in Iceland people would throw rocks and shout abuse at me because they thought I was weird. I never got that in London no matter where I went or what I wore. The English press were also the first to embrace The Sugarcubes. I don’t know where it stems from, but I think the English have a real appetite for difference and eccentricity.
