Hey ho – let’s go and listen to some violent sounding guitars from these Nordic post punks who unfortunately never released their masterpiece Ó Reykjavík on a 7″. Why, why, why but why didn’t they do that as some British punk band (whose name just slipped my mind) asked. And what do they sing about? All I can figure out is that one of the tracks have the uplifting title Suicide, but maybe someone who speaks Icelandic can tell us. In my world Icelandic is basicly an older form of Swedish with the addition of the -ur at the end of every word, but I’m not sure if they’re pulling a joke when you look at what the different instruments are called. Trumbuslattur, raddsnurur, gitarslattur and bassaslattur just sounds too good to be true, right?
Iceland have some really weird looking letters that I had a really hard time to figure out how to type, but I think I got them right even if I don’t know how to prenounce them or read it, despite being so simular to Swedish.
