V/A - Rokk Í Reykjavík 2LP 1982

Rokk í Reykjavík was the soundtrack to the Icelandic TV documentary directed by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson during 1981-82 winter and released in 1982. The soundtrack, which was released in April 1982 as a double LP released through Hugrenningur, features the performances of several Icelandic bands of the post punk/New Wave scene. Bands such as Þeyr, Tappi Tíkarrass (a band led by singer Björk), Egó, Purrkur Pillnikk (with Einar Örn Benediktsson as the front-man), among others, were considered some of the most important bands at the moment, exclusively live material. Truly a fantastic time document of the early Iceland punk scene.

PURRKUR PILLNIKK - No Time To Think EP 1982

Further with more viking stuff here. Yet, the last release by these awesome punks from Iceland with four extremly weird cool songs. Again released via Gramm Records in 1982 and here on it the hymn 'Surprise' which is a short snotty punk track as a punk song should be and 'For Viewing', a rhythmic thunderhall number. And when i listen to the singer, I always think of volcanic eruptions. He's absolut brilliant. The use of a saxophone is also a highlight here. This was posted on WDR on May 2011 an maybe other stuff of Purrkur Pillnikk follows soon. It's sunny weather outside so i leave you with this today.

PURRKUR PILLNIKK - EhgjI En: 1981

A leap in the far north and we meet Purrkur Pillnikk, an amazing band from late punk era from Iceland. The band existed for eighteen months (1981–1982) and were very active, they released at least two albums and one live record and two EP's. The distinguishable character of the band were Einar Örn's howling and off-key singing and his lyrics that most often described very day-to-day things but with a lot of interwoven angst. Members of the band later found themselves in KUKL and 1986 in the Sugarcubes. The band toured Britain in fall 1982. This is their debut album on Gramm records with seventeen short crackers with simple guitar riffs which is fuckin' PERFECT!! Search this blog for more. And now two new records arrived and they wanna be digitized immediately... I Love Saturdays! - See you in Walhalla.

V/A - Nobody's Perfect EP 1986

One more rare record from my Wanted-List now. The first issue was released as Lasta-EP II by ST-Records in 1984 with different artwork and this here two years later on Leukemia Records. Musically, we are in Europe (except Bill Of Rights) and approaching a slightly aggressive sound that we all know as punkrock. I think the band names speak for themselves and every song is a typical representative of this genre: loud + rough + snappy! Each band puke in their natural language which I always enjoy, even if I don't understand a word. Four mid-tempo goodies and three short rapid heart attacks, what you want more? Probably appeared in small editions and hard to find... pull now!

1.I Miei Occhi - STIGMATHE
2.The Frontline - ZERO POINT
3.Efialtis - ADIEXODO
4.Paranoja - OPDAKI CIVILIZACIJE
5.Ekki En - PURRKUR PILLNIKK
6.C-9 - THE BILL OF RIGHTS
7.War Is Here - W.D.M.

V/A - Geyser 1987

HUHHHH, usually I'm in the stadium when Dortmund comes but today not but it was an exciting game and a 2:1 is the victory for the SGE, now we are third in the league, Juhu! OK, interested none of you so let's enter "Geyser, a compilation on Enigma Records and this record is a reflection of the activities Gramm Records has been engaged in over the five past years. Gramm began its lifespan in the beginning of the most creative and inventive era in history of Iceland rock music." This is a short statement from the backcover. Twelve songs, varied styles: punk, alternative, electro, wave, gothic etc.. not bad and a decent mix. That's it for today, have a nice evening!
