203. Song of the Week is “On the beach” by California Cheeseburger.
California Cheeseburger are Ari Eldon on bass & vocals, Riina on guitar & vocals, Kommi on drums & Pétur on guitar, organ &vocals.
California Cheeseburger first appeared as a trio in 2005, when Pétur Úlfur, Ari Eldon and Riina Pauliina started writing and recording songs together. Pétur and Ari had played together in the band Panman earlier, while Riina had been busy with her own bands, the Homebreakers and Minä Rakastan Sinua.
In 2005 they played their first gig, at a Gay Pride party in Reykjavík and maintained a fairly active schedule for the following year. In 2006, Cheeseburger recruited local legend Kommi (Langi Seli og Skuggarnir, Oxsmá) as a drummer, but only played once in public after that before disbanding.
Now, they have risen from their grave only to record songs that were too good for collecting dust and release it as their debut album “Holland Island Bar Light“. The album has a genuine soothing surf vibe to it and one can imagine standing at the beach porch with beer and BBQ, and afterwards taking a nap in a hammock and drift away.

>Echo & The Bunnymen are Íslandsvinirnir
On my old blog I love Icelandic music I made items about videos shot in Iceland & album covers with photographs shot in Iceland.
Echo & The Bunnymen did both.
Long before Damon of Blur, Jarvis of Pulp, drum ‘n bass guru Goldie became friends of Iceland in the 90’s. The video for the song “The Cutter” of their “Porcupine” album uses footage shot in the land of fire and ice (mainly all nearby the golden waterfall Gullfoss).

The cover of the album “Porcupine” (1983) features the famous Gullfoss.
