GRAMM 3

Includes icelandic and english txt sheets.
All the info on the cover and the icelandic txt sheet is in phonetic transcription! I'll skip the icelandic titles for now ... Here's the english translation of the titles:

Side 1 (Purrkur): Twixt ; Now ; Not yet ; Rage ; Peeper ; The flight ; Vaterland
Side 2 (Pillnikk): Holy terror ; What can I do ; Outlocked ; Exceptional product ; Anonymous ; Prime target ; Bad boy ; Still young but ; Dream ; Knockout

In my opinion this is THE album coming from Iceland.

The power, anger and arctic cold in these grooves has not been matched by any other scandinavian group and very few others, if at all.

Re-released by BAD TASTE with new cover:

Reykjavik : Smekkleysa, 1993. - (SMC1CD) [SME1CD?]

2. Maskinan : 8/3/81 - 28/8/82

Live. Sleeve is a folded poster. With lyrics, list of all concerts to 28/8/82 and when and where the various cuts were recorded. The "poster" side is a collage of live photos, very catching.

They did several shows with The Fall. Read this hilarious article from The Falls 3 gigs tour of Iceland. Even Einar gets to say a little bit!
