Sigur ros - Copenhagen 27.01.2001 FM BROADCAST

Sigur ros - Copenhagen 27.01.2001 FM BROADCAST

Lineage: unknown 192kbps

This concert comes highly recommended. The sound quality is excellent but be warned there is a very bizarre radio jingle at the beginning which if you're not expecting can be a bit frightening! This is such a great concert in many ways. Being an early one, there are parts where you hear some fragility in the singing and playing which comes across as very endearing, especially when at other parts you hear the potential power behind some of these songs starting to be released.
There is a very early version of I Gaer here which is in many ways different from the Hvarf version. There is also an stunning 12 minute Bium Bium Bambalo * which is very rare live. Just before the last song, Popplagio, Jonsi announces he feels like Tom Jones !? A must have concert for fans. Enjoy

- * Correction on Track 04 - Actually 2 tracks together. Thanks Alline

Track List:

01 E-bow
02 I Gaer
03 Ny Lagio
04 Bium Bium Bambalo/Danarfregnir og jaroafirir
05 Sven-G-Englar
06 Popplagio

This is an incredible set-list! I have no word to thank you for sharing this, because I thought they never played Bíum Bíum Bambaló live... and you can add on the set-list, chained up after this wonderful song, Dánarfregnir Og Jarðafarir too, which is very very rare.
