Þeyr

Real Name:
Þeyr
Profile:
The legendary group Þeyr (sometimes written as Theyr, or Peyr) contained two future Kukl / The Sugarcubes members and were the thinking man's favorite group in Iceland between 1980 - 1983. After releasing their first Album Þagað í Hel, which was strongly influenced by dance music, the group underwent a change and discovered the new wave. Their music was now something very special, raw, and angry, sometimes compared with works of Killing Joke or Joy Division.

Their music never has been re-released as the masters are believed to be lost. However in 2001 a compilation was released called Mjötviður til Fóta. It contains songs recovered from the album Mjötviður Mær and the single Iður til Fóta, two records released in 1981. Thus, the only recorded material of the band currently available is this release, as well as some Icelandic compilations which feature a few tracks.
