Repost from the ever kickass Watch With Mothers
With the 2010 Brits on the horizon, there’s a sudden rush of awards ceremony nostalgia going around. Brit Hits on ITV last Friday was a fine example of how to celebrate all that is stolid, tedious and uninventive about an awards ceremony – a show that even managed to roll its eyes at the brilliance of Jarvis Cocker mooning a supposedly messianic Michael Jackson back in the 90s.
So it falls to Fever Ray – solo artist and one half of Swedish electro weirdos The Knife – to set the standard on how to upset, bemuse or get people talking at awards ceremonies the moment you move towards the stage. Be warned, the Youtube clip, below, is very, very strange.
And if that wasn’t enough Swedish weirdness, check out Robyn’s and Spank Rock’s appearance at the same show.
Swedes – respect is due.
