i am beginning to get a bit hyper about “heima” which gets it world premiere in reykjavík in 11 days (september 27th at the reykjavík international film festival) and it gets shown two days after that here in helsinki at the rakkautta ja anarkiaa film festival (its sold out). after that it will be shown in new york, london and at a few other european (and beyond) film festivals in october and november. the film is released on double dvd on november the 5th.

ultra

the first gig i saw at the iceland airwaves festival 2 weeks back was the icelandic band ultra mega technobandið stefán. in the space of about 30 minutes they rocked the venue – there was perhaps a hundred or so people there watching – about seven photographers up the front with very expensive cameras moshing along with the singer and taking thousands of pictures. the singers stripped off and was jumping around the place as his father was taping it all on video camera. the energy of the gig was just amazing.

photoset from their pravda gig on 2006.10.18: here

here are some youtube links: “cockpitter” + interview (in icelandic) + “story of a star”

they played a second gig on the sunday night in another venue – we had heard it was due to start at 0100 so we got to the venue at just before 0100 only to find out that they had started a little after 0000 – so we only got to see the last 2 minutes of (i think) cockpitter (see video above) which had four or five band members moshing in with the audience. (oh plus they are aged only 16 or something)
