11-Year-Old Björk Reads The Nativity Story On An Icelandic TV Special

Back before Björk was part of The Sugarcubes she was just a young lady with dreams of stardom who appeared on an Icelandic TV special back in 1976, reading the Nativity story while onstage with some talented young musicians.

It's hard to understand what people are saying in the video unless you speak Icelandic, and the English subtitles seem to be a bit off, but it's not hard to see why people were captivated by Björk's unusual beauty. And yet she somehow manages to look practically the same whether she's 11 years old or 50!

In between this and the Sugarcubes, Bjork was definitely involved in a few other things. She was in a kinda New Wave-ish band called Tappi Tikarrass, which you can see perform in a documentary "Rock in Reykjavik" (1982), as well as having a bit part in a club scene in an Icelandic movie called "New Life" (1983). After that she was in a band called Kukl, they were a noisy experimental band on Crass records (ala the political punk band) that came out with a couple albums. Bjork and 2 other members of Kukl then formed the Sugarcubes.
