30 Icelandic Music Scandals & Rock Orgie in the West Fjords (2004)

When I was in Iceland a few weeks ago, I found the Icelandic (Gossip) Magazine Séð og Heyrt (2004) about a Rock orgie featuring the band Trabant @ Ísafjörður, West Fjords. Also I read an article in Fréttabladid Newspaper by Dr. Gunni entitled:
