Hey, sigur ros are fantastic.
They have also released a soundtrack album for the film' angel of my heart'
The language jonssi (singer) sings in is the noise he makes when he first thinks up a melody. As he believes this is the purest form of his music this is the way it stays for the album.
You may notice the frequency of the 'words' (sic) eel sa da lo, on the album. The above explains why this is the case.
Von is very hard to find, ie only on import cos they weren't signed to a major label then and still can't get the distribution.
Bye, andrew

sigur ros is :shock: and :-D and :cry: and :eek: live...it was seriously one of the most amazing live music expierences ever! (they're up there with coldplay if not tied to their performance) the raw emotion and intensity it's just almost too much to handle...so beautiful!!

( ) is a great album to play soft and drift off to sleep listening too.

I agree... I didn't even know they had three albums out - I've only got () Agaetis Byrjun, so I'll have to see if they have the first... what does it look like? :oops:

hahah yeah i didn't want to say it being that this is a coldplay board *ahem*

but as far as other cd's they have.... there's von and von brigði (recycle bin) their former record label owns the rights to those i'm pretty sure so you have to order it through them ... http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk has more info

They are an amazing band...i have the last two albums...don't have Von or it's remix cos they are only available in Iceland or from the Icelandic record company. The live material is even better, good stuff to get into.

for sites which have media

www.potemkin.cc/sigur - live in vienna 02
www.sigur-ros.com - just general stuff off ()
www.sigur-ros.co.uk - lots of different stuff culled form live shows etc...
213.220.78.118. - the ftp site


they are far more emotional/powerful than Coldplay...but Coldplay are still a good band. Sigur Rós live are unstoppable and unfathomable...I love them. I saw them in dublin and was just awed...everything is so much better with the visual fulfilment...


now...night-night
