Badass Icelanders!

Is it pronounced UL fer UL fer? Are they like the Duran Duran of Iceland?

I'm not sure, it translates to "Wolf Wolf".

I was curious what the meaning was to Duran Duran, and here is what I found:

"1978–1980: Formation and early years

John Taylor and Nick Rhodes formed Duran Duran in Birmingham, England in 1978, where they became the resident band at the city's Rum Runner nightclub. At the club they were doing jobs such as John working the door and with Nick deejaying for £10 a night. They began rehearsing and regularly playing at the venue. There were many nearby nightclubs, and the one "significant" one, where bands such as The Sex Pistols and The Clash played gigs, was called Barbarella's. They would go on to name the band after a character from Barbarella, Roger Vadim's French science-fiction film. The character, played by Milo O'Shea, is named "Dr. Durand Durand".

I thought it was a character in Barbarella! Cool.

And here's a connection: Duran Duran had a hit song called "Hungry Like the Wolf":

We believe in the interconnectedness of all things.
