The Museum of Icelandic Punk, Reykjavik

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 2.20pm (day 2,869)

Iceland punk museum, 3/7/19

Time for a summer holiday. Time for the blog’s 36th country: Iceland. Time for tiny but endearing museums devoted to the Icelandic punk rock scene from the 1970s on, built in old subterranean public toilets. The fabled landscape of Iceland? I’ll capture this if it stops raining. It’s forecast to: eventually.

Bassist, the Dictators

Dictators bassist, 4/8/16

I do the blog with a fairly crappy compact camera that needs replacing, only I can’t afford to at the moment. Rock gigs are like football matches, I’d probably be able to capture much better images of them if I had a proper lens or flash unit; in the low ambient light the participants tend to need to be stationary, which doesn’t happen that much. Best effort from tonight, where me, Clare and about 50 other people turned up to watch The Dictators go through their set: a band that can be dated by the fact they appear on a compilation I picked up last year of, not 70s punk, but 70s pre-punk… There were a few of people in the room aged under 40. But only a couple.

Punk rock family tree

Rock family tree, 10/6/16

As famously drawn by Pete Frame, and currently on display in the British Library’s “Punk 1976-1978” exhibition of photos, fanzines, posters, record sleeves etc. from that era. If you have half an hour to spare and you’re in the area I highly recommend it.
