The quintet was formed in Iceland a year ago, the members had reached a conclusion that the artistic life was the only one to live. As an outlet the boys attempted to form a “Fun House” tribute band, which would only play the classic Stooges album ad infinitum. But after a vomit soaked awakening the acoustic approach revealed itself to be the only sensible outlet for their dementia.
With a banjo, a delay-pedal, gentle finger-picking, distorted drones and a vintage organ they continually attempt to cleanse the impurities of their hearts and minds, though it has not been formally established that all the members actually have beating hearts.
The members have all delved into the roots of their own culture and of our North-American brethren and sought inspiration of kindred spirits such as: Akron/Family, Neutral Milk Hotel, Phil Elverum, Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and other troubled minds.
The group has played diligently in various Icelandic venues, amongst others the always popular Iceland Airwaves festival. They have teemed up with Icelandic artists such as Lay Low, Pétur Ben and other bohemian beatniks of Reykjavík town. Currently an attempt to capture their artistic vision is underway in form of an album, where they will be recording a piano filled with flames on the barren black beaches of the tundra.
