Can anyone with their feet and roots more firmly in Iceland than myself please tell me a little more about the Icelandic group, "Logar", which has apparently been still going strong since 1964?

"Minning um mann", (originally by Gylfi Ægisson) seems to have been their greatest hit.

Here's a video of it, apparently from a 1973 concert:

Here's an article in Icelandic about them, which I haven't yet myself had time to try and decipher more fully:

I had, however, never previously heard of them before I stumbled across them last night on youtube, and was wondering if any fans of theirs might perhaps also be here on LT(?), and if so, if they could give me a bit more perspective on Logar's career and influence...?

Thanks!
