Royksopp the Cabbage Farmers

Royksopp are that quirky Norwegian duo who release a shiny electronic music album every few years. They also do a good line in cabbage barter. From an interview on emusic

Having various guest singers on Junior has worked a treat, but did you worry about the financial implications of having so many guest writers? You must be sacrificing a large percentage of your royalties…

No, we’re getting into the trading economy. Money is becoming worthless, but if we can give cabbage and get back carrots and potatoes we will be able to sustain our livelihood.
