Sigur Ros...


On Sunday night Kev and I went to see Sigur Ros performing at Somerset House. Those Icelandic good time boys (and girls?) wowed us with their high-kicking quick-fire bubble-gum pop songs... ok, ok... I'm joshing of course... Sigur Ros are better known for their anthemic, mostly untitled, part-Icelandic, part-English 8+ minute tracks that put them fairly and squarely in the realm of prog rockers. Fabulously atmospheric in a perfect setting.

We went down there on Kev's motor bike - me hanging on the back for dear life. Naturally we stopped off at Comptons on the way there and the way back. Well you would, wouldn't you? Great fun.
