mix list verges on offensive - Björk, Captain Comatose, Prins Póló and Kasper Björke to name but a few - yet their remix work as Gluteus Maximus will solidify and break back down somewhere in the middle of Sigur Rós's Gobblidigook, Gusgus’s Deep Inside and Trentemoller's Miss You.
With their very own original hit single “Everlasting”, featuring the magnificent vocals of Högni Egilsson, they have started releasing on their own label, Radio Bongo.
Together Margeir & President Bongo are the big guns. An arsenal of rotating musical mass.
They are... Gluteus Maximus.
„However, as with most small, new festivals there are plenty of unexpected treats. A live set from Gluteus Maximus, a duo made up of DJ Margeir and President Bongo, of GusGus, is what I thought Thugfucker would look and sound like. There are two people in Satanic hoods lifting weights at either side of the stage as strobe lights flicker. John Grant, who lives in the city and is about to release his wonderful new album Pale Green Ghosts, pops onstage for a quick guest spot. A man growls "I wanna go down on you" ominously, while sporting what looks suspiciously like a leather cap. It's all gone a bit sexklub.“
„... in a room that had already hosted Gluteus Maximus, who had several thousand Icelanders eating out of the palm of their hands as they moved though their repertoire of maximalist techno, complete with weightlifters mingling on stage.“
„Here, under a blazing sky, Icelandic lunatics Gluteus Maximus are sending an already packed SonarVillage stage crowd potty. It's 25 degrees in the shade, yet the bare flesh all around us does not care one jot, stopping by for a dance before disappearing off elsewhere. It's an energy that doesn't let up for the rest of the weekend, as we head off down into the spiral.“
„ ... the nights biggest spectacle... and the glamour with which its pulled off is why I will forever tell people this band are amazing.“
The Bad: „The realisation upon leaving that I am not a member of Gluteus Maximus.“
