the top 20

Helgi Briem - found the web site by accidental google. Never knew Helgi was in Fræbblarnir - means I probably saw him in concert 25 years ago or so. Weird. Check their MP3 samples above.

The definitive top 20 icelandic albums.

I would rearrange the order a bit - I am feeling a bit inimical towards Sigur Rós for slightly obscure reasons, and Björk - well I really prefer her early stuff, but this is a pretty good list.

Dr Gunni - the John Peel of Iceland?
I miss John Peel.

Fabriclive:07 is one of the best albums around, and, appropriately, listed as "unclassifiable" on iTunes.

Also check out Smekk Leysa for more avant garde Icelandic scene... ;-)

Sæll Steinn.

Fann þetta líka fyrir tilviljun. Ég spila í Fræbbblunum núna (frá 2001), en gerði það ekki þegar þú sást þá fyrir rúmum 20 árum. Þá var ég reyndar stundum rótari, umboðsmaður og allsherjarreddari hljómsveitarinnar.
