moving to London

When did you move to England, and why ?

About two years ago, when the Sugarcubes were just breaking up. I decided I was going to do my own project, and doing that, every little fucking detail has to be perfect. Because I manage myself and everything had to be done under my name, it just became ridiculous doing it from Iceland. I was just constantly on the phone or the fax machine. And also, coming over here, it gives you so much space. I’m not for professionalism, but to have professional people to take care of things, it just takes a lot of the burden off your shoulders. People who know exactly what to do. Very, very good printers, bass players, engineers, you can find them all here.
