This is a broadcast from the North.
Radio Summerhall loves Lucky Records. We have the rain, they have the snow and we both have the music.
Listen, don’t let the name throw you, there’s no luck involved. You either know what you’re doing or you don’t and Lucky Records is Reykjavik’s seat of vinyl learning. Countless hours spent trawling through their crates of records has unearthed numerous gems, most of which have at some time become components of our Radio Summerhall programme setlists.
Lucky Records is also a hub for live Icelandic music. Crammed onto a tiny stage, local and international bands play what must be their most intimate live sets.
Radio Summerhall has teamed up with Lucky Records to bring you up close to some of the bands that played there over recent months.
We kick start this series with an amazing up close, explosive experience from Reykjavik locals; Tófa.
