Solo project of Þorsteinn Magnússon,guitarist of the legendary band Þeyr and session guitarist for the band Psychic TV on their Those Who Do Not LP. Released his only album LIF under his alias Stanya through Gramm Records in 1982.A dark ritualistic masterpiece with experimental edges bleding the dark long night of Iceland ,with all the legends of icelanding tradition living here. Reminding much early Psychick TV projects and Virgin Prunes early stuff in parts.

I've been surprised that Geyser Anthology hasn't been posted on someone's blog. It was a great collection.
