Margaret Berger ‘Pretty Scary Silver Fairy’ Roundup

FT5 comments • 577 views

FT hasn’t entirely retired its cutting-edge pop reporting (*cough*), but we’re perhaps getting slow in our old age. So feel free to find out more about Margaret Berger from older posts on say Dirrrtypop or Popjustice. Summary:

* “runner-up on the second series of Norwegian Idol in 2004”
* in the Annie/Kylie/Girls Aloud/Rachel Stevens/Xenomania/icy electro model of things (i.e. hideously out moded now if you are ‘hip’)
* “The album will probably never be released in the UK”

:-( oh noes. Well you can hear brief bits of the best two tracks from this (her second) album on our poptimism podcast and you can find mp3s
