THOR'S HAMMER - IF YOU KNEW



THOR'S HAMMER - "If You Knew" (Ugly Pop UPO46) 2013

This is an enjoyable compilation album to spin for top Thor's Hammer tunes from 1965 - 1967.
For those who don't know they were Iceland's premier and maybe only beat group. I don't know for sure if they were the only one but I doubt if Iceland had any beat scene going on in the mid 60s.

Thor's Hammer made their way to England and signed a deal with Parlophone and released a few records that were brimming with quality but went nowhere fast. Their aggressive fuzz crunchers "I Don't Care" and "My Life" get a lot of attention and quite rightly so, but my pick is The Searchers influenced jangle beat gem "If You Knew" from 1966. Absolutely their best song in my opinion.
