Björk: 'People miss the jokes. A lot of it is me taking the piss out of myself'

It's quite hard talking to Björk about her music. This is for a few reasons, the most important of which is that she doesn't make music to talk about it. She makes music because that is what she does ("I write one song per month," she says, "sometimes two months"), and usually the whole picture of an album doesn't emerge for her until very late in the process.
