Weeks after giving birth to Sindri, she'd jumped back into the swing of things with Bad Taste and even found herself vying for a role in an independently made film. Based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, The Juniper Tree was the brainchild of American-born director Nietzchka Keene, who'd won a Fulbright scholarship to shoot the project in Iceland. Keene, who had been busily prepping the film in Reykjavik for nearly a year, was two weeks away from shooting when potential disaster struck. The 13-year-old girl that she'd originally cast had violated the terms of their agreement; now on the eve of production, she suddenly found herself in the unenviable position of having to swiftly replace one of her lead actresses.

' We question why so-called bad taste should be called that by the people who think they are in good taste. It's in everything — clothing, furniture, house colors ...

Creatively, this was an important step for Bjork to take. " In contrast, Kukl's music was gravely discordant, perpetually distressed. Their moody stabs of angular punk had positioned them as the antithesis of accessible pop and earned them a reputation for unyielding intensity. Inherent in what they were doing was a sort of controlled desperation, likely the result of having so many dominant personalities within one band.
