Long Description:

"eg vendi aftur til ódnarveður
vánaligar fløguútgávur
eina árliga blokering
av Kaldbaksbotni

hampafólk í samkomu
sum eru útbúgvin í bíbliu
men rodna tá eg syngi
um samkynd og nekarar"

English:
"I return to stormy weather
bad album releases
an annual blockade
of Kaldbaksbotnur

decent folk in congregations
who have Bible educations
but blush when I sing
about gays and negros"



Kaldbaksbotnur is located at the end of Kaldbak's fjord on Streymoy's east coast. The road to the neighboring village of Kaldsbak was completed in 1977, and the two places were connected to the rest of Streymoy in 1980. In 1992, the tunnel from Kaldbaksbotnur to Signabøur opened. The formerly so remote village is therefore now a place that you drive past on the road between the capital Thorshavn and the airport in the Faroe Islands.
Musician: Teitur Lassen

Name of Song: Útsetin

Relevant Verse:
I return to stormy weather bad album releases an annual blockade of Kaldbaksbotnur decent folk in congregations who have Bible educations but blush when I sing about gays and negros"
