Sigur Rós - Culture Show Special

Sigur Rós - Culture Show Special 20.10.2007

As requested [thanks Emerline - Just about melted off my chair watching this again. Its been 10 years and this STILL gives me goosebumps listening to it] reposted from October 2008.
(I don't use Rapidshare anymore so many of the early links have gone. Please do request anything to be re-posted if you find a dead link)

~ Video and Audio - Exclusive live studio acoustic version of Njosnavelin. An essential viewing for Sigur ros fans and in fact everyone. This is the best interview i have seen of them to date. It shows them as they are, despite enormous success, still very much down to earth and quite humble. Its geat to hear Jonsi finally reveal the truth behind 'Hopelandic' his made up lanquage! I like Verity Sharp, she is doing a similar job to the late John Peel with the BBC show 'Late Junction' Watch her face during the performance!

"Verity Sharp meets the four-piece band Sigur Ros in their native Iceland and on their visit to the UK for the 2007 Electric Proms. They have sold two million albums globally and their haunting music has been used as a soundtrack on trailers for the BBC series Planet Earth. They talk about their unique sound and their film Heima, which chronicles a series of unannounced gigs in Iceland in 2006"

Thanks so much! Totally agree with you about the interview (the best I've heard) with Verity Sharpe excellent, and totally overwhelmed by the band and love their music.
I had so far not been able to see the entire issue, but since yesterday when I found and watched, I'm just enthralled.

Thanks so so much for all. Also for all matters relating to Olafur Arnalds

I saw your blog victoryrosevideo. unfortunately all the links are dead. Would you have reap load them another time with media fire? it's complicated?

What you do here is fantastic and valuable to all lovers of good sound and Iceland.
Would you have figured out how to upload the Wiltern concert of Jonsi?
